James McAvoy calls for more female-led Marvel films

James McAvoy calls for more female-led Marvel films James McAvoy wants to see more diversity in Marvel Comics movies. The latest instalment of the Marvel Comics franchise, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which is slated for release this month, will focus on Jean Grey, played by Sophie Turner, who loses control of her telepathic and telekinetic powers and becomes the Phoenix. But now James, who reprises his role of Professor Charles Xavier in the flick, has said that the film feels particularly appropriate for the moment.

"We have to fight back at this practice of overwhelming the market with the blockbuster. The - how should I put it? - the regular film, that's being edged out," he said. "It has to go someplace because you know why? There are people that are going to continue to make them."

The 76-year-old, who has not had a film financed by a major studio in 10 years, will also release his much-anticipated, $125 million (£98 million) mafia epic The Irishman in the fall, after the streaming giant was the only studio prepared to finance it.

"No one else (wanted to finance it). No one else did," the director insisted. "We decided to make it with the understanding that it'll maybe never be shown in theatres. They said, 'You would have a time in theatres,' - a few weeks or whatever. I said fine. The idea was to make the movie, you see.

The Dylan documentary, which premiered on Wednesday and will have a limited theatre release, includes restored performance footage from the tour, backstage scenes and the music icon's first on-camera interview in a decade.
