However, just because she’s a big part of the Ant-Man movies, don’t expect the Wasp to spin-off into a movie of her own.

As Disney grows to be an even bigger industry behemoth following its acquisition of 21st Century Fox, the House of Mouse prepares its assault on the biggest streaming giant: Netflix. And the battle is beginning sooner than we thought. Ahead of Disney’s launch of its own streaming service, it’s pulling all of its Marvel Studios films from Netflix. This is something we knew was happening, but kind of expected to take place further in the future — you know, when we all have jet packs and Disney chips installed in our brains. But nope, Ant-Man and the Wasp will be the last Marvel film to stream on Netflix, and the final remnant of the old Netflix Marvel deal.

Wonder Woman is an icon for our age. Strong, empowering, complex, and compassionate, Gal Gadot’s Diana of Themyscira is the heroine that so many little girls have been dressing up as and looking up to. So why is she always stuck in the past?
For her first two solo movies, Wonder Woman and the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984, Diana and her superheroics reside firmly in past decades. And yes, they’re prequel films, and yes, she’s hundreds of years old so you can really place her solo movies whenever you want them. But Wonder Woman’s solo movies getting consistently set in the past is a problem she shares with many of the other major female superheroes today.
When it comes to Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, and reports about the potential Black Widow prequel film, Hollywood can’t seem to competently deal with female superhero stories in the modern age.
