When Evangeline Lily isn’t kicking ass as the Wasp in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, putting her co-workers to shame for their dumb costume-related complaints or letting her stunt coordinator knows what’s up, she’s giving interviews that’ll make you not wanna lose total faith in superhero blockbusters. (Is it just me?) In a recent conversation with Comicbook.com, Lily made some of her future Marvel ambitions known, including a MCU movie featuring an all-women cast. She said:

“Dude, there’s talk of an all-ladies MCU movie amongst the MCU ladies. We would love to do that, and I think we should all put as much pressure as possible on [Marvel Studios president] Kevin [Feige] to make that happen.”


Later adding:

“I am going to continue to keep the rumor and gossip about an all-female Avengers film going until it happens.”


And before you ask “What would that even look like?” Think about all the women in these things that maybe aren’t blown up to Chris Evans-size: Lilly’s the Wasp, Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, Scarlett Johnasson’s Black Widow, Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, Danai Gurira’s Okoye...

1. YES.

2. It better include Sharon Carter aka Agent 13. Seriously, she’s such a badass in the comics and I know Emily Van Camp can do her particular brand of snark and competence.

3. Keep Whedon far, far away from it.  Always.
