A similar move made headlines earlier this year when Ava DuVernay's new show, Queen Sugar, confirmed that it would have an all-female director lineup, and Rosenberg explained that the decision to have all 13 episodes of the Marvel Comics superhero series directed by women was not initially her idea, but rather that it came from someone else involved in production.

Twitter has been abuzz with reactions to the news, and it's clear that a lot of people are excited that the show is giving women in the industry more opportunities.
