We should really let Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Batman, and Superman be all moody by themselves in a corner. More than one panel at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend made us think the world would be just fine if you left the heroines — both DC and Marvel — in charge. First, the Wonder Woman trailer premiere got many hyped for the first female-led superhero movie since Elektra. There's Captain Marvel Brie Larson; Black Panther's Lupita Nyong'o and Danai Gurira; Spider-Man: Homecoming's Zendaya and Laura Harrier; Doctor Strange's Tilda Swinton and Rachel McAdams; and Guardians of the Galaxy's Zoe Saldana, Elizabeth Debicki, Karen Gillan, and Pom Klementieff.
