Riddick's Katee Sackhoff hints at possible Marvel movie involvement

Sep. 6, 2013by: Paul Shirey

Actress Katee Sackhoff has been very vocal about her fangirl status and after a successful turn as Starbuck in Battlestar Galactica, voice work in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Robot Chicken, Superhero Squad, and even a turn on 24, it appears that she's been pretty consistent. Currently starring in RIDDICK, Sackhoff was on The Schmoes Know Podcast and cryptically revealed that she may or may not have met with Marvel/Disney for talks about a spot in a future Marvel film, saying, "there's been some stuff going on" and "a lot of checking of availability for the first quarter of next year."

Now, we could easily toss out a "big whup" to that, but even Kevin Feige has been dishing on the prospects of another female Marvel superhero gracing the big screen.

"There's obviously a drumbeat that is banging louder and louder that we want a female lead superhero. We have strong female characters in our films from Black Widow to Pepper Potts to Peggy Carter and you never know. Maybe there's an offshoot film with one of them. Or Captain Marvel, you know?"

Hmm. Captain Marvel indeed. Sackhoff seems like the perfect fit for Carol Danvers/Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel. Almost too perfect really. Certainly she could fit just about any Marvel female as she's got the looks and the physicality to fill that role. In all honesty, it would be silly to think that Marvel wouldn't even be considering her for something. Feige paints a not-so-bright look at a solo female film in the near future, but the possibility is still there.

"It's hard because we have a small group at Marvel. We do two films a year. To get those two films done and to do them right takes a lot of work and manpower. And female-power, obviously. To add a third film and to just put it in the slate right now is difficult. We have these next three, four, five films coming out and that's what we're really concentrating on."

What do you think? Is Sackhoff a shoe-in for a Marvel film or is she too obvious of a choice?

Extra Tidbit: I'm still partial to Alice Eve as Captain Marvel, but really that's just because I'm partial to Alice Eve in general...

Why all the love?

Why all the love for this actress by the visitors on this site? Can someone explain that to me?
I don't find her attractive and she comes off as annoying in everything I've seen her in.

Not to shatter Ms. Sackhoff's dreams, but I don't see a world in which Marvel hires her to headline a feature film. Now if she'd said they were thinking of offering her a part in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D....

...nope

Alice Eve is a shoe in for this. She has the looks, the acting chops, not to mention here heavenly.... assets. Ms Marvel to me is supposed to be visually striking and irresistible good looks. I don't see that in Katee Sackhoff. She is just not jaw dropping beautiful, which is the angle I think they need to go. Katee Sackhoff is SyFy channel hot at best. (bring on the negs)

Sackhoff is ok, personally I'd prefer Yvonne Strahovski. But am I crazy for even considering Natalie Dormer?

I'd be okay with her as Carol Danvers,, but I think she's a better fit to play Banner's cousin Jennifer Walters, but I don't expect She-Hulk to be popping up in the MCU anytime soon. I know it's been suggested here on Joblo a million times, but like Jedd the Jedi implied below me, I think Yvonne Strahovski would be an absolute perfect Danvers! The idea of Strahovski as Ms. Marvel fits so well it just makes me a lil less excited about any other choice. And well we're on the topic of more female

Always thought they'd give Carol Danvers to Yvonne Strahovski.

This chick can't act her way out of a wet paper bag. Also she doesn't have the tits for Miss Marvel. You know it's true.

She would be a great choice. Sometimes a woman's allure can't be quantified in her physical measurements. I think she is hot as fuck. All of you children ragging on her looks are hilarious. Like you wouldn't jizz right in your Batman underoos if someone half as attractive as her even bothered speaking to you. Please. She deserves better than the second lead on a pretty boring TNT show. Her physicality and enthusiasm for fanboy culture would make her a solid choice as a Marvel heroine.

Love Ms. Marvel!

I have every issue of her recent/short lived series. Great character. Strong and feminine, sexy and a tad "promiscuous" and plagued with enough demons to complicate her her life and make her interesting. Kind of a female Iron Man. Would be a great film and Sackhoff (what a great last name!;) could do it although Alice Eve idea would make my brain melt with joy.

That is one ugly chick that when I first watched the new BSG I thought she was a man, but then I saw her acting and knew she couldn't do that good of a job pretending, it was just the fact that she did look, walk and talk like a man. Yeah lets put her in skin tight suit so nobody shows up to watch

This chick is so overrated, was annoying in BSG, and Riddick. Don't understand the love for this actress. I prefer Alice Eve for Cap Marvel.

I thought superheroines were supposed to be impossibly sexy? They're going for "man-faced" now?

Carol Danvers

I cannot remember, but didn't they have a Danvers character appear briefly in one of the films already?

more variety!

marvels got a good start. And now they've got GOTG to kick off their cosmic universe. So, black panther or captain marvel? I would love to see either one of those characters get some screen time.

PERFECT!!!!

Wow that would be one hell of a casting. She could rock that roll! Hell yes I'm in! This would be the best casting I've heard from a Marvel movie if it happened. Many times the casting seems like a stretch then works out for the best but this one is perfect!!!!

We truely need a female superhero film indeed. I'll be all open arms with a Ms. Marvel film. On that note "DC get your shit together and gives us a Wonder Women film for godsakes"!

Yupp, genius casting IMO. Sackhoff would nail the role of Captain Marvel (Ms. Marvel, whatever). I think Marvel would be very smart to start laying some groundwork to develop this into a property. It would be an awesome character, and not to bring too much sociology into these conversations, but it would be nice to see female comic fans repaid for their loyalty with a main character to root for on screen and rally behind. Sure the characters Feige talks about are great female characters,

I think it would be solid casting. If she gets it, you would hear no complaints from me.

She could definitely pull it off. I'd love to see her as Ms. Marvel. You called it: she's got the looks, the physicality & the acting chops to fill a strong, female lead character.
