To follow on from yesterday’s story that Marvel is looking at making a female-led superhero film, there’s a rumour doing the rounds that Katee Sackhoff may be in line to lead such a film. Promoting Riddick, the actress told ComingSoon.net that Marvel has already made enquiries about her availability.
Sackhoff said, “There’s been a lot of questions about the first quarter of next year.”
The story claims that the role in question is likely that of Carol Danvers, aka Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel. In terms of the ‘first quarter of next year,’ that seems to point towards the time that Avengers: Age of Ultron will be filming. So, adding 2+2 together and possibly getting 5, is there a chance that we could see Ms. Marvel make an appearance in Joss Whedon’s upcoming Avengers sequel?
Expect more on this as it develops.
