In episode 131 of the Hugo Nominated SF Signal Podcast, Patrick Hester asks our irregulars to weigh in on: Female superheroes who deserve their own movies.

This week’s panel:

Expanded topic notes:

Following on the success of the Avenger’s, and praise for Scarlett Johansen’s portrayal of the Black Widow, there is a lot of speculation on which characters we’ll see on the big screen next. Unfortunately, former Editor in Chief / current Chief Creative Officer for Marvel, Joe Quesada, doesn’t see that being any of Marvel’s female characters/heroes.

From Ain’t it Cool News:

- In a chat afterwards, Joe told me that he’d love to make a tentpole movie with a female lead, but that he really doesn’t think there is an actress right now who could carry it, or a character that would work either. I’m thinking I might agree with him on this one actually.

Seriously? In all of Hollywood, and all of the Marvel Universe, there’s not a single actress / character combination that would work?

What do you think?
