I preface this by saying I know it’s rumor. It’s speculation. It’s idle talk and dreaming and lots of other totally nebulous things but I’m still gonna post about it cause I like kick ass comic book chicks and I like Katee Sackhoff.
Apparently, Marvel Studios producer Louis D’Esposito recently said he liked the idea of doing a Captain Marvel movie. Around that same time, Katee Sackhoff dropped word that she’s in talks with Disney/Marvel for some kind of project but gave no other details.
So is it possible that there’s some sort of Captain Marvel movie in the works and that’s what Katee Sackhoff is involved in?
Here’s what Coming Soon wrote about after talking to D’Esposito:
There’s obviously a drumbeat that is banging louder and louder that we want a female lead superhero,” he says. ”… [W]e 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?
As for Sackhoff, she told the the Schmoes Know Podcast that Disney/Marvel has been doing “a lot of checking of availability for the first quarter of next year”.
Are these two conversations related? Who knows. Maybe so. But could it also be related her desire to play Typhoid Mary in the long and oft talked about Daredevil reboot?
Whatever it is, things seem to be afoot at Marvel and speculation is fun. On a related note, Katee would also make a badass Harley Quinn.
What do you think?
