Katee Sackhoff Quells MS. MARVEL Rumors
"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..," says Katee Sackhoff on the rumors that she'll play Ms. Marvel in a Marvel Studios movie.
These days, we should be wary of denials coming from directors and actors, thanks in-part to the pre-release media coverage on The Dark Knight Rises and Star Trek Into Darkness. But Sackhoff is more than denying she's up for the role of Ms. Marvel in a Marvel Studios film, she claims her quotes were misinterpreted---
"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."
And just to be clear, she adds---
"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."
Despite fans thinking she'd be a good fit for the role, Sackhoff acknowledges that there are probably fans who don't think she'd make a good Carol Danvers. Nevertheless, Sackhoff says that should Marvel come calling, she'll definitely listen---
"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."
