Katee Sackhoff addresses the Ms. Marvel rumors

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 thing… People love a good story, even if it’s 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 it’s interesting how people twist stories to serve an agenda that makes people click on their site, or sell their papers."

She continued…

"I absolutely have not spoken to Marvel. It doesn’t mean that my team hasn’t 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 I’m tied up with Somnia which is a fantastic place to be. It’s exactly where I wanted to be."

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

"Yeah, I’m sure if we dug deep enough there is a sect of fans that don’t want me for Ms. Marvel so let’s just leave it at they want me for Ms. Marvel and that’d be fantastic. I would love to do the role. Of course I would love to do the role. I think that it’s in my wheelhouse and I would enjoy it. I’d be stupid to turn down a Marvel movie but as far as I know, Ms. Marvel isn’t even in the next movie."

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