Speaking at the 10th annual Produced By conference, Marvel 's Kevin Feige promises that a lot more superhero films will have female directors . The superhero genre is more popular than ever, but female directors of superhero movies remain few and far between.

Kevin Feige has pledged that many of the upcoming Marvel films will follow the precedent set by “Captain Marvel ” and be directed by a woman. “I cannot promise that all 20 Marvel movies will have female directors but a heck of a lot of them will,” he said, evoking major applause.

He also revealed that agencies are putting forward more women than men for Marvel directing jobs.

For Feige, the emphasis very much seems to be on breaking the mould when it comes to industry expectations. That's also why he's particularly keen on hiring indie directors and giving them a voice, like Black Panther'sRyan Coogler, Thor: Ragnarok's Take Waititi and Spider-Man: Homecoming's Jon Watts.
