The short film Item 47, an extra on The Avengers Blu-ray, became the ABC series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

After several male dominated films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, more attention is turning to women. Besides the inclusion of Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel director/producer Louis D’Esposito was recently quoted saying the company wants to make a female lead superhero movie. He even offered up the character Captain Marvel as a possibility.
