It looks like the Black Widow will be the only thing stopping the Avengers from being a boy’s club, as Joss Whedon confirmed that there’s only going to be one female Avenger in the upcoming film.
“It is true that the movie is only going to have one female Avenger,” Whedon told the Herald-Sun in Australia, according to Moviehole. “But she will not be the only female character.”
Scarlett Johansson’s character, the Black Widow, has already been signed for the movie (and was featured prominently in a star-studded SDCC photo-op with the big-screen Avengers assembled). The other confirmed Avengers include Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hawkeye, the Hulk and Nick Fury.
Rumors floating around thus far include love interest characters such as Pepper Potts and Betty Ross — and I wouldn’t rule out characters like Sharon Carter or Maria Hill, either. What say you, Rama readers? Which female Avengers would you have wanted to see?
