Director Lexi Alexander Thinks A Ms. Marvel Movie is So Important, She'd (Jokingly) Do It For Free



While her stint in directing Marvel heroes was short lived, Lexi Alexander has been generally light-hearted about the experience, joking that she wished Marvel Studios had been in charge instead of Lionsgate. Now, the director of Punisher: War Zone is blowing up Twitter about a different Marvel hero: Kamala Khan. 

Kamala is the current hero using the title Ms. Marvel, an honor most famously held by Carol Danvers who, in 2012, took on the name Captain Marvel in a popular book by Kelly Sue DeConnick. Captain Marvel also has the dubious honor of being the first woman to star in a solo Marvel Studios film (currently slated November 2018). But Alexander wants to direct another movie.

Writers, G. Willow Wilson and Marguerite Bennett have been handed the keys to an all female Avengers book to premiere this spring. With art by Jorge Molina, the team will pick up after the heroes of the Marvel Universe disband, following the events of Secret Wars.

The Line-Up:

She-Hulk


Medusa (Inhumans)


Dazzler (X-Men)


Nico Minoru (The Runaways)


Singularity (new to the Marvel Universe)



This move is another in a move toward diverse representation that Marvel has made over the past several years. With Miles Morales, Kamala Kahn, Spider Gwen, the new Thor, Sam Wilson's Captain America, and an all female X-Men team, Marvel continues to push against the white male superhero mold.
