Marvel reportedly only hiring women for Captain Marvel sequel.
The Carol Corps is a female only group lead by Carol Danvers. They work on their own accord and do not take orders from the Avenger Initiative or any other patriarchal group.

“These ladies are the best of the best and will take you down if you threaten their Captain,” the synopsis reads on Google Books.
Marvel going all in with feminist movement
Not only is the film going to send a strong feminist message, Disney/Marvel are allegedly only hiring women for the crew and production unit.
Gamespot writes, ” THR also claims that Marvel is looking to hire a woman to direct Captain Marvel 2, which could hit theatres in the 2022. The report also claims the movie will be set in the present day, which is decades later than the first movie, which took place in the ’90s.”
