According to MoiveWeb:

Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige was initially worried about pitching a female-led Marvel Cinematic Universe project. According to Hulk star Mark Ruffalo, the studio boss feared he could lose his job. This all went down when the first Avengers movie hit theaters in 2012. Five years later, DC and Warner Bros. beat Marvel to the punch with Wonder Woman, which was a box office smash. Captain Marvel followed in 2019 and now fans are looking forward to the standalone Black Widow movie. A lot has changed in eight years.

In a new interview, Mark Ruffalo spoke about Kevin Feige’s determination to diversify the MCU. While one wouldn’t have thought it would have been that hard to do, there were some uphill battles that took place behind-the-scenes, which Ruffalo learned about first hand from Feige. The Marvel Studios boss can do no wrong these days, but he initially feared that pitching a female-led movie would cost him his job. Ruffalo explains.

Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel have proven that comic book fans will go to theaters to see a movie starring strong female characters. Wonder Woman 1984 and Black Widow are two of the most anticipated movies of 2019. And while DC and Warner Bros. may have been the first, Marvel is going out of their way to make sure they are more inclusive than anybody else out there today. Mark Ruffalo had this to say about Kevin Feige’s vision.
