In what would likely be the no-brainer casting move of the decade, Battlestar Galactica‘s Katee Sackhoff is rumored to be in talks to play the newest Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers.
There’s not a lot to go on just yet, beyond Marvel Studios President Louis D’Esposito saying in an interview with Superhero Hype that Marvel is keen on making a movie with a female lead character, even mentioning Captain Marvel by name. Also, Sackhoff told the hosts of the Schmoes Know podcast that “there’s some stuff going on” between her and Disney, namely the company checking into her availability for early 2014.
Maybe that presages a Captain Marvel appearance in Avengers: The Age of Ultron, or maybe it just means Disney’s hoping to snag her as the voice of a mysterious helicopter in Planes 2: Enter the Chopper (a title I hope the Planes sequel actually has). It’s all pretty hazy right now.
But it’d be pretty, pretty great to have the woman who was Starbuck play Carol Danvers, wouldn’t it?
SMH @ DC if we get a fucking Carol Danvers movies before a Wonder Woman movie.
