Quiz: Are you a fan of Female Superhero Films?

For the last couple of years, comic book fans have been living their dreams of watching their favorite superheroes grace the silver screen. But more recently female superheroes have become more mainstream. 

The first female superhero film was Sheena: Queen of the Jungle, released in 1984. It was followed by Supergirl and was released in the same year. Red Sonja, another one hit the theatre following the trails of Supergirl, just after a year, in 1985. 

After the ‘80s frenzy was dialed down, it would take 19 years for Hollywood to produce another female superhero film titled Catwoman, which came out in the summer of 2004. Followed by Catwoman, the next year, Elektra came out, and both were disasters. 

With two back-to-back flops, Hollywood production houses stopped making female superhero films until pretty recently, 12 years after the release of Elektra, with Wonder Woman in 2017. Gal Gadot’s portrayal of the Amazonian process was a huge box-office success. Wonder Woman started a new era of female superhero films which saw Marvel come out with Captain Marvel in 2019, which became the first female superhero movie to enter the billion-dollar club. Supergirl, Jessica Jones, and Black Widow have also found success in recent years. 

The new Disney Plus original series with Hailee Steinfeld as the protege to Hawkeye has become widely popular. 

So, if you are a fan of female superhero films, attempt the quiz to prove your love for the genre.
