9 Female DC Superheroes Who Also Deserve Solo Movies

What other ladies of DC now deserve to follow Wonder Woman into the spotlight?

DC Comics

Wonder Woman marks a major shift for the modern comic book movie landscape. It is the first big-budget film of its kind with a female lead and a female director, and people seem to be loving it.

It's surprising that a franchise that has been so testosterone-fuelled like the DCEU is the first to nail the female superhero, but Warner Bros and DC have not only managed it, they're already planning for the future.

As both Marvel and Sony try to launch their own superheroines with Captain Marvel and a Black Cat/Silver Sable team-up (yeah, good luck with that one), DC already has a slate of movies in development that don't feature a Y chromosome in the lead.

A sequel to Wonder Woman is already coming, Harley Quinn is going to team up with her gal pals in Gotham City Sirens, and nerd god himself Joss Whedon is taking on the task of bringing Batgirl to the big screen (because it's about time we were invited to forget that Alicia Silverstone ever happened).

Even beyond those strikes forward, there are plenty of other superheroines in the DC Universe who deserve a chance in the spotlight...
