[[wysiwyg_imageupload:10984:]]Katee Sackhoff clears things up regarding her "talks" with Marvel Studios.
The actress makes it clear that she didn't talk to Marvel, but that her people (i.e. agent/reps) may or could have.
Sackhoff was on a recent podcast where the hosts were talking about Marvel questioning her about it. She didn't specifically state any studio, just that there is a lot of stuff going on and there has been a lot of checking on her availability.
Sackhoff does confirm "someone" was checking on her availability, and also says she isn't doing a Marvel movie in the immediate future.
Interestingly enough, in addition to the Ms. Marvel rumor, Sackhoff has also mentioned she is interested in playing Harley Quinn.
Could that have been Warner Bros. knocking on her door?
Below she even states that she doesn't think Ms. Marvel is in the next movie: "As far as I know..."
We hear you have some Marvel negotiations going on?
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.
So are you saying you have not spoken to Marvel?
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.
It turned out the fans were hoping you’d be Ms. Marvel. Was that flattering at least?
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.
