Scarlett Johansson is 'pushing' for all-female Avengers film
Previously, Brie Larson had said that the women stars of MCU are really "passionate" and look forward to an all-female Avengers ensemble
After Brie Larson, her Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) counterpart, Scarlett Johansson has said that she is "pushing" studio boss Kevin Feige for an all-female Avengers film.
Director duo Anthony and Joe Russo had teased a teaming up of major women characters from the MCU in their film Avengers: Endgame, when every female superhero — from Valkyrie to Pepper Potts —combined forces and fought supervillain Thanos.
Speaking to an international magazine, Johansson has said that she wants to see her ‘powerful’ peers lead an Avengers film. It is notable that while Johansson’s character, Black Widow dies in Endgame, the character will have an origin film coming up in Phase 4. "I don't know what my future is in that world. Obviously, it's a little more opaque for my character. But that group of actresses is so incredibly powerful and when they come together, it's explosive and unstoppable. So yes, I'm pushing for that. I think audiences want it and I'm definitely one of them," the actor said.

Marvel Studios has long been criticised for not treating its women characters at par with their male counterparts. But the studio has started to address this, starting with Larson's Captain Marvel and the upcoming stand alone film on Johansson's Black Widow.
