I don’t know how true it is but there are rumors floating around that Kevin Feige, the Marvel executive producer, is working on developing a live-action female Avengers movie called A-Force, based on a failed comic book run of the same name back between 2015 and 2016.
The rumor comes from We Got This Covered, wherein a source reportedly told them that the film is only in the development stage, but the feminist concept centers around including Jane Foster’s Thor (also known as Femthor), Captain Marvel, Miss Ameirca, She-Hulk, and the lesbian Valkyrie.
According to the article the lead-up to the movie will start with the Disney Plus series, She-Hulk. Jennifer Walters, the alter ego of She-Hulk, is reportedly the head of the team and so the series will help setup her story for the live-action movie.
This apparently all spawns from the female team-up segment in Avengers: Endgame.
But having a short segment in a movie is completely different than having to carry an entire two-hour film.
What’s more is that even Yahoo! reported that the comic book that this concept is based on… failed. Horribly.
The series A-Force had a limited run between 2015 and 2016, with a 79% year-over-year drop-off from the first issue to the penultimate issue.
As reported by Newsarama back in October, 2016…
“According to North American direct market sales figures (as extrapolated by ICv2 from Diamond’s released numbers), May 2015’s A-Force #1 earned roughly 114,528 single issue sales while September 2016’s A-Force #9 had 23,484 – roughly a 79% drop in initial comic book sales. The book went through several creative changes in its 17-month and two-volume run, with three writers and four artists in the 14 issues released so far.”
Long story short, even with the Avengers films making big bank at the box office, the Marvel Comics division’s attempt to cash-in on the popularity with a feminist-focused super hero team still failed to draw an audience in the comic book realm.
The thing is, if they couldn’t get people interested in the comic book back when the Avengers was super hot stuff, I tend to doubt that they could get people interested in a live-action movie now that a lot of people feel that everything has wrapped up with Avengers: Endgame.
While I’m sure some casual fans and creepy male feminists will show up to support Marvel’s live-action endeavor for A-Force, I tend to doubt that hardcore fans would willingly subject themselves to Disney’s social engineering initiative to indoctrinate people with degenerate feminism.
Then again, Captain Marvel and Black Panther both made $1 billion, so maybe people are more gullible than I thought. Either way, A-Force is just a development concept at this stage, and it won’t come to fruition until She-Hulk is completed in 2022, so this female Avengers team-up wouldn’t see the light of day in theaters until at least 2023, according to We Got This Covered. That gives fans plenty of time to abandon Disney and finally let the super hero genre fail once and for all.
