The 8 Best Female Characters In The Marvel Cinematic Universe


The Marvel Cinematic Universe, across the 13 movies and four TV shows released so far, has built up a wide array of heroes, anti-heroes and villains. It has to be said, though, that a disproportionate amount of them are men.

That’s not to single the MCU out, of course, as that franchise is probably one of the best around for delivering “strong female characters” – a phrase which here means female characters who are not only physically capable but also fleshed-out human beings.


Though they do not number a great deal, the leading ladies we have already met have made big impressions. This is also something that will definitely improve in future. For instance, Marvel’s first female-led movie, Captain Marvel, will be released in 2018.

As we wait patiently for the Brie Larson-starring film to arrive, we decided it’d be a good time to take a look back on some of the studio’s best female characters to date. From Scarlet Witch to Black Widow, here are the Marvel ladies that we just can’t get enough of.
