Wonder Woman was a breath of fresh air; something that both the world and more importantly the DC movie universe needed. While the movie is performing admirably well all over the world, I personally found the film a tad mediocre. That being said, Gal Gadot's performance could make her the leader in the holy trinity of the DC universe. Meanwhile, it must not be forgotten that there are countless other female characters in both the Marvel and DC universe. We have all seen Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow on the big screen. We have also arguably admired Famke Janssen's Dr Jean Grey/ Phoenix. Élodie Yung's portrayal of Elektra was also well received in Netflix's Daredevil, in the presence of strong characters and excellent performances of Charlie Cox's titular character and the phenomenon that was Jon Bernthal's Punisher.
However, there is still a lot of ground to be covered. And we, the nerds of the 21st century, can't wait any longer for some of our favourites grace the big screen.
Wonder Woman pulled DCEU out of the grave, Catwoman could take it even higher. She's an excellent thief, has crazy martial arts skills and hangs out with Batman.
Yes, we have had both Halle Berry and Anne Hathaway play the cat burglar that is Selena Kyle. And while Berry's Catwoman almost killed our hopes of a good female superhero, Hathaway resurrected the character in The Dark Knight Rises.
Hathaway was beautiful and graceful in her portrayal. However, Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy has come to an end and with the rise of the DC movie universe and the Justice League at our doorsteps, it won't be a surprise to see the cat burglar make an appearance, at least in the standalone Batman movie.
So maybe, not now but at some point of time in the near future, we need to have a solo Catwoman movie. The character is as grey as the caped crusader and would help in expanding the Gotham city universe.
Kryptonian and probably one of the few characters who can put Superman in the ground. Need I say more?
This is an easy choice. Always referred to as Superman's cousin, Kara Danvers/Supergirl possesses all the strengths and weaknesses of Superman. Just like her cousin, Kara can fly, has superhuman strength and shoots lasers out of her eyes.
If you think Superman is the most powerful creature in the DC universe, think again. The DC TV universe already has a show running with the titular character.
And although, many would agree that the show isn't all that good, a movie with a better budget and better actors could do justice to one of the most powerful female superheroes of all time.
3. Black Widow
Good enough a spy to fool Loki and always picking up after the boys, we have all loved Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Black Widow/ Natasha Romanoff/ Natalia Romanova, is a spy of Russian origin, who had changed sides and offered her services to the SHIELD, before joining the Avengers in the battle of New York (movieverse).
We have seen flashes of her cruel past in Avengers: Age of Ultron and are dying to see her solo movie. And yes, the movie should preferably an origin story although a TV show might be a better bet.
Introduced as Logan's daughter in The Old Man Logan comics, Laura is every bit the adamantium claws wielding animal her father is. And given her age in the movie Logan, she can only get stronger.
The 11-year-old Dafne Keen, as we have all witnessed is supremely talented and left a mark in a movie starring Hugh Jackman and Sir Patrick Stewart.
The timeline of the X-Men movies, however, makes it difficult for her to get a solo movie. Logan, based in the year 2029, sees Laura escaping to Canada. What we'd give to see her continue her story post-Wolverine.
5. The Phoenix
Since 20th Century Fox has ventured so deep into the prequel territory and has cast Sophie Turner, we might be getting a standalone movie. In fact, rumours have been ripe in the Twittersphere about a Dark Phoenix movie being in production.
Famke Janssen showed us the true powers of the Phoenix in the 3rd movie of the X-Men franchise: X-Men-The Last Stand.
We see her standing above all, obliterating mutants and humans like with her sheer will. Now, Logan, as we know has already killed her. Do not forget, Jean Grey is the only Class V mutant shown in the movies, and her powers easily eclipse Charles Xavier's telekinesis.
One of the most important characters in the X-Men series, she's also a fan favourite.
The mutant shape shifter made her big screen debut in the first X-Men movie, but the character was only really developed when Jennifer Lawrence took up her mantle in X-Men: First Class.
A grey character, who's also shown to be one of the leaders of the young X-Men, there's a lot missing when it comes to her story. A solo movie would be perfect for her.
