Letitia Wright has tried to persuade Marvel producers to make a movie with an all-female cast, the actress has revealed.

When working on Avengers: Endgame – in which Wright appeared alongside the other female Marvel cast members in a memorable battle scene – she wanted to prove what the women could do without the men.

"It was a beautiful moment," Wright told Harper's BAZAAR about the scene. "We spent most of the time trying to convince the producers that we should get an all-female Marvel film. After every take we’d be like, 'Did you see that? We don’t need the guys!'"

Although Marvel released its first female-led superhero movie this year, Captain Marvel, the studio has faced criticism for its lack of female characters in the past and it is yet to release an all-female movie.

Wright is not the first star to speak out in support of the idea either. Brie Larson (who plays Captain Marvel) revealed to Variety last month that "a lot" of Marvel actresses have "passionately" expressed interest in the idea.

"I’m not in charge of the future of Marvel, but it is something that we’re really passionate about and we love and I feel like if enough people out in the world talk about how much they want it, maybe it’ll happen."

Scarlett Johansson, who plays Black Widow in the franchise, echoed Larson's thoughts.

"That group of actresses is so incredibly powerful and when they come together, it’s explosive and unstoppable. So yes, I’m pushing for that. I think audiences want it and I’m definitely one of them."

All in all, it sounds like Wright is in great company with her campaign.
