Katee Sackhoff addresses the Ms. Marvel rumors

Sep. 11, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Recently there were rumors that RIDDICK's Katee Sackhoff could possibly play Ms. Marvel. This all spurred from a comment that Kevin Feige made that kinda sorta implicated that they were looking to bring more female characters to the screen and kinda sorta tossed out "Captain Marvel". Then somewhere else in the blogosphere, Sackhoff didn't try to fan the fires concerning a possible Marvel meet-up.

Nice to drum up some good PR, I say.

When speaking with Crave, the actress addressed rumors connecting her to the character or even that Marvel meeting:

"You know, you say one thingÖ People love a good story, even if itís a story that has very little truth to it. If you go back and actually listen to what I said, I said that people have checked my availability. I never said Marvel [or] Disney so itís interesting how people twist stories to serve an agenda that makes people click on their site, or sell their papers."

She continuedÖ

"I absolutely have not spoken to Marvel. It doesnít mean that my team hasnít spoken to Marvel. I personally have not spoken to Marvel and have no plans to do a movie in the immediate future, because number one Iím tied up with Somnia which is a fantastic place to be. Itís exactly where I wanted to be."

Of course she's not against playing the part if it ever truly does come up:

"Yeah, Iím sure if we dug deep enough there is a sect of fans that donít want me for Ms. Marvel so letís just leave it at they want me for Ms. Marvel and thatíd be fantastic. I would love to do the role. Of course I would love to do the role. I think that itís in my wheelhouse and I would enjoy it. Iíd be stupid to turn down a Marvel movie but as far as I know, Ms. Marvel isnít even in the next movie."

I think she's a badass fit for a hero role so can we get on that?

Prefer Alice Eve for Ms. Marvel, Sackhoff can be an annoying damsel in distress screaming while Ultron destroys the city.

I have to agree, that Yvonne Strahovski seem to a better match for Ms Marvel. Nothing against Katee.

I'd rather have Yvonne Strahovski as Ms. Marvel. She would be perfect.

Or perhaps Alice Eve?

wow

this much news over a hack actor that was quite possibly the worst part of BSG and for sure the last season of 24. They would never cast her for a big movie she has no draw and again no acting chops

What's with all the negativity? If there ever were a Ms. Marvel movie, I think she'd fit in the role rather well.

Whether or not the meeting happened and there is a discussion about doing a Ms. Marvel movie, it's out there in the universe now that people would want to see a Ms. Marvel movie and people would want Katee Sackhoff to play the role. So if Kevin Feige is honest about wanting more female characters in the universe and isn't blowing smoke up everyone's ass, than there's really no reason to not start looking into getting this character developed for the big screen.

how bad is it that she got naked and you still got down voted that many times. I wonder what that says to her attractiveness level to most male fans??
