The 21st century has become the age of the superhero movie. There’s been an awful lot of male superheroes with their own solo movies: Spiderman and Batman have even rebooted several times in the past two decades, with successes (“The Dark Knight” trilogy”) and failures (everything with Ben Affleck as Batman). But there are very few female superheroes amongst the bunch, with only a handful getting solo flicks. With the sheer amount of female superheroes who’ve appeared in the pages of DC and Marvel Comics, I think this should be rectified A.S.A.P. So, here’s my top ten badass ladies who deserve their own time in the spotlight.
Sidenote: I’ve tried my best to only feature superheroes that don’t have locked-in solo films in development, so superheroes like Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Huntress and their like won’t appear here. Black Widow will appear because I won’t trust that they’re finally giving her a solo film until I see the first trailer.
