They're definitely interested...
Marvel is reportedly looking to make a female-led superhero film. Louis D'Esposito, who has been an executive producer on all Marvel films to date, told CS.net while promoting Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter that there is a plan for the future that involves a female character leading a film.
D'Esposito said, "There's obviously a drumbeat that is banging louder and louder that we want a female lead superhero...[W]e have strong female characters in our films from Black Widow to Pepper Potts to Peggy Carter and you never know. Maybe there's an offshoot film with one of them. Or Captain Marvel, you know?"
D'Esposito previously said at Comic-Con that a Captain Marvel feature film was a distinct possibility. He added that it may still take a while though to CS, noting, "It's hard. because we have a small group at Marvel. We do two films a year. To get those two films done and to do them right takes a lot of work and manpower. And female-power, obviously. To add a third film and to just put it in the slate right now is difficult. We have these next three, four, five films coming out and that's what we're really concentrating on."
