There has been so much news about the superhero universe, it can be a bit hard to keep track. What we do know is there's going to be a lot of action in both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC universe. We've just entered the year 2015 and the question is: will 2015 be the (pardon the Hulk pun) banner year for female superheroes and strong female characters period? Let's have a look at what's expected in 2015 for the comicverse!


Superman's cousin is expected to hit the screens of TVs through CBS next fall, although there's no premiere date set yet. The plot will be a more gritty look at Kara, as it will be a bit more of a crime drama. I personally can't wait for this one.

Avengers 2: Age of Ultron

On the team of Avengers in the sequel, Black Widow is set to return. Scarlet Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen will also be joining the cast. And of course, there's Maria Hill.

The Fantastic Four Reboot

It hasn't exactly been getting 'I'm SOOO looking forward to this' like some of the other movies, but in the way of female superheroes, Fantastic Four is definitely not a movie to be ignored. Susan Storm is awesome! And for my article delving more into the reboot of The Fantastic Four, click here.

Agent Carter

Agent Peggy Carter, founder of SHIELD. Her story came to TV screens courtesy of ABC, and debuted January 6, 2015. It's shaping up to be a really good show too, full of action and seriousness. However, the humour isn't ignored either, as I practically killed myself laughing a few times.

Marvel's: [Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.](series:722469)

When it debuted, it had a little bit of a rough start. Even if it does have a bunch of awesome characters, including Mockingbird. However, thanks to the mid-season finale, there might be a few more fans tuning in to see what happens to Chloe Bennett's character, Skye. After all, it does hint at a new movie. If you want to know more, go watch it yourself! There's no way I'm going to spoil it!


It's been revealed recently that [Arrow](series:720988) will be a TV series that will have a few new developments in its latest season. One of which will be development and the possible donning of the Black Canary uniform by Katie Cassidy's character, Laurel Lance.

A.K.A. Jessica Jones

To be a superhero or not to be a superhero...
To be a superhero or not to be a superhero...

This TV show, by ABC and Netflix in conjunction, will air sometime in 2015 and features a former superhero who's trying to live the life of a private investigator. Her alias is Jessica Jones and the series will cover her life.

So all in all, what do all of you think about what could be a groundbreaking year for female superheroes in the comics? Will it live up to the possible expectations facing it? Did I miss any female superheroes who will be in the limelight in 2015? Go ahead and tell me what you think about all of it in the comments!
