2020 has been a very good year for strong female role models in film, featuring plenty of narratives promoting strong women. Females have been featured in action films more and more, making it a genre not only dominated by male characters nowadays as it was in previous decades. Some of the most important films of this year with a female hero include:
- Mulan: This Disney’s live action remake from the 1998 animated movie tells the story of Mulan, a proud warrior vowing to bring honor to her family by disguising herself as a man in order to battle the huns. The film casts Liu Yifei as Mulan, and was directed by Niki Caro.
- Wonder Woman 1984: It was only a matter of time until we saw Gal Gadot return to the big screen as Wonder Woman, after the success of her first film back in 2017. Taking us back to the 80s, Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman will face her enemies Maxwell Lord (played by Pedro Pascal) and Cheetah (played by Kristen Wiig).
- Black Widow: After years of being relegated to a supporting character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, fans of Black Widow (played by Scarlett Johansson) will finally see her starring in her own movie. The film will tell the backstory of Black Widow, set between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War.
- Birds of Prey: Margot Robbie returned to the big screen this year after her success in 2018’s Suicide Squad as Harley Quinn. In this installment, Quinn battles the vicious crime lord Black Mask (played. By Ewan McGregor) alongside her allies.
It’s safe to say that women are changing it all and 2021 promises to be an even more interesting year for women in film with more exciting titles featuring lead females. Girl power all the way!
