"He talked a little bit about how making a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie is fitting this one piece into a bigger picture, and giving yourself over to that.

Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson) will be digitally de-aged in order for their characters to look like their younger selves, since the movie is set in the 1990s.

While this isn't the first movie with a female superhero, it is the first to be written primarily by women. Supergirl (1984), Catwoman (2004), Elektra (2005), and Wonder Woman (2017) were written by men. The closest was Catwoman (2004), which gave a writing credit to Theresa Rebeck. However, that movie also had three male writers credited.
