From 'Black Widow' to 'Birds Of Prey': 2020 will be ruled by female-led superhero films
2020 will surely be bright, as the year will embrace some female superhero movies after the genre was long dominated by male superheroes. In 2020, women will be cast in the biggest superhero films by both DC and Marvel.
The DC extended universe has bring-out the boldest move yet with Harley Quinn's 'Birds Of Prey'. The movie is been released and follows a story of Harley Quinn after her break-up with 'Joker', and is back with her the girl squad, Mary Elizabeth Winsted's huntress, Jurnee Smollett-bell's black canary, and Rosie Perez’s detective Renee Montoya. They are out to protect Ella Jay Basco's Cassandra Cain after she comes across a diamond belonging to crime boss Roman Sionis, aka black mask, played by Ewan Mcgregor.
The live-action take on Disney's 1998 animated 'Mulan' stars Liu Yifei as the legendary warrior woman. One of the greatest fighters the middle kingdom has ever known, 'Mulan' risks everything out of love for her family and her country. Liu Yifei is being promoted as china’s first Disney princess, and the film is surely propelling the popular Chinese actress to international fame. The original animated version had a small release in China in 1999, but if the reactions to this film's trailer are anything to go by, the remake is sure to take the world by storm.
