Invisible Women: Visualizing the lack of female leads in comic book movies.

In 1989, Tim Burton’s Batman reinvigorated the comic book movie. Since then, only 4 comic book movies featuring a female lead have had a theatrical release: Tank Girl (1995), Catwoman (2004), Elektra (2005) and Barb Wire (2006). That’s just 4.6%.
Wonder Woman is scheduled for release in 2017. Captain Marvel has been pushed back to 2018 to accommodate for the Spider-Man reboot.
