Many movie fans are passionate about the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But, truth be told, there is one thing that's wrong with it. Many of the movies just seem way too male-focused! Sure, there are plenty of female characters - but they never seem to play leads.

Well, Brie Larson looks set to change all that. Speaking to Variety, the actress claimed she was in discussions with Marvel about an all-female movie for the franchise - and the internet is very excited.

In terms of the movie industry, there's one franchise that's reigning supreme at the moment.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe seems to churn out smash hit after smash hit - and their popularity seems only set to grow.

One reason for this?

The incredible range of different characters. The fact that we get to constantly check in with our favorites makes watching the movies feel like hanging out with some friends.

But there is something fans have noticed.

The main characters of the MCU tend to be male. If you think of the most popular superheroes, they all tend to be guys.

From Iron Man and Deadpool ...

To the amazing addition of Spider-Man, the biggest Marvel movies tend to be those focused on the male characters.

And, sure, there are female superheroes.

But it tends to be a rather unbalanced mix - as seen with the Avengers. 

Fans of female-led superhero movies are in luck, though.

It's been announced that there's a new Black Widow movie coming out in 2020 - which, at least, promises to be female-focused.

And that's not all.

In Avengers: Endgame the women of the MCU came together to help defeat Thanos - including the introduction of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel.

Which, for many, was an incredible moment.

Finally seeing the MCU give us some girl power has got many viewers hungry for more - including Captain Marvel herself, Brie Larson.

And it seems she's been inspired.

As in an interview with Variety, Larson teased the fact that there may well be a female-only Marvel movie in our future.

Larson claimed that the notion had been "truly discussed."

“I will say that a lot of the female cast members from Marvel walked up to Kevin and we were like, ‘We are in this together, we want to do this,'" Larson explained.

"What that means, I have no idea."

"You know, I’m not in charge of the future of Marvel, but it is something that we’re really passionate about and we love."

Larson is hopeful, though.

"I feel like if enough people out in the world talk about how much they want it, maybe it’ll happen."

We're happy that we have Larson backing the movie.

Hey, if we've got Captain Marvel on our side, we can't fail, right? Larson also discussed the empowerment she's found in the MCU.

"It was just a great day."

"To get to be with all of those women for the day and you get this feeling of, like, almost a little bit of naughtiness because it’s a secret and none of us can talk about it — that it felt like we were a part of this like coven working together for this goal."

"It was an opportunity for us to share and hang out."

"And as many people know, a lot of the time women aren’t working together. It’s kind of been this new breath of fresh air for us in our industry that there’s more female ensemble films, which has allowed us the opportunity to really communicate with one another. So we get so excited and feel so much energy when you get to be around your peers and share stories."

"I don’t know what kind of change that brings the MCU."

"I love Carol Danvers so much and I love playing her and I love the way that she interacts with people and the way that she’s grown into herself."

"So, I’m excited to see where that goes."

"But there’s so many other new characters that I love, as well, that I’m excited to see and it’s so hard to imagine now where we’re at with these stories. Them existing without any one of those characters. It’s hard to pull that apart."

It's safe to say that people are behind this idea.

And many have already started speculating about who could be a part of the upcoming movie. There are rich picking within the MCU, such as Black Panther's Shuri.

Another possibility?

Scarlet Witch, who originated as a part of the X-Men, but made an appearance in the most recent Avengers played by Elizabeth Olson.

There's just one problem.

Marvel has already announced their Phase Four slate - with no Larson led movie in sight. So, if it does happen, it's not gonna be for a while. Sorry, ladies. Curious about how white men are taking the female MCU takeover? Read on. (Clue: not well.)
