Marvel Studios is expected make some major announcements during tonight’s Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con, but in the meantime, executive vice president of production Victoria Alonso has teased some big news that’s somehow related to the Guardians of the Galaxy films.
Alonso spoke earlier today at SDCC’s Women of Marvel panel, where according to Bleeding Cool, she suggested that we’re in for a huge night when it comes to female characters in the MCU.
Now, to a large extent, this tease is nothing new. After all, Marvel Studios has long been hyping up the franchise’s Phase 4 for its female representation. In fact, while the production house is still a few hours away from announcing their next set of films, it’s widely understood that a Black Widow solo movie and a Captain Marvel sequel are both on the way.
Things really got interesting, however, when Alonso followed up her tease by singing a line from “Hooked on a Feeling,” a song that MCU fans have come to associate with a certain gang of misfit space travelers.
So, what could Alonso possibly be hinting at? One obvious suggestion might be the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but if the final minutes of Avengers: Endgame are anything to go by, then the team’s line-up will still be very male-heavy in their next big screen outing. With that in mind, you have to wonder if Marvel actually has a female-led spinoff in the works.
Is it possible that a Gamora or Nebula solo movie is on the schedule? Or perhaps Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will introduce a new character who goes on to further adventures? Either way, we won’t have long to speculate before Marvel follows through on Alonso’s tease later tonight.
