“Avengers” Sequel: More Female Heroes?

Now that it’s officially on, “The Avengers” sequel will have some Hulk-sized footprints to follow, and Marvel Studios will have to figure out which — if any — of the superheroes from its larger universe should feature in the follow-up. It’s too soon to say definitively, but if writer-director Joss Whedon remains at the helm, he would like to see Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow get a sister on the squad. In EW’s exclusive roundtable interview with Whedon and his hero cast, they discussed why there are so few female action heroes in the movies and why they hope that will change in the next movie.
