Wonder Woman Will Beat Captain Marvel To A Solo Movie – But Will Captain Marvel Make It To The Screen First?

Captain-MarvelWonder Woman is set to debut as a movie on 23rd June 2017. Marvel Studios’ first female lead movie, Captain Marvel, will come on July 6th 2018, a year later. The new Wonder Woman played by Gal Gadot will also appear in Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice, out on March 25th, 2016.

But today’s announcements have only fuelled a rumour spinning out of New York Comic Con published yesterday that Marvel are keeping publishing the Captain Marvel monthly comic book despite low sales because of her upcoming movie appearance.

But that’s not in 2018. That’s in 2015. In Avengers: Age Of Ultron, out on May 1st, 2015.

So while DC may beat Marvel to getting a female solo superhero movie out in the current wave of superhero films. But Marvel will get their character on the screen first.

Man, the Carol Corps is just about to increase their membership a hundredfold…
