Captain Marvel, which arrives in 2019, is Marvel and Disney's first solo female superhero adventure. And as expected, there are plenty of actresses vying for the role. Perhaps none more so than Katee Sackhoff. But as she recently revealed to Playboy, there may be another Marvel character that she is more interested in, especially as the cattle call for Carol Danvers becomes increasingly crowded.
Katee Sackhoff is the queen of nerd franchises. Everyone fell in love with her in Battlestar Galactica. And she carried that good will over to a role in the sci-fi thriller Riddick starring opposite Vin Diesel. She's tussled with serial killer Mike Myers in Halloween: Resurrection, played with the The Bionic Woman, and run alongside Jack Bauer on 24. She's even hung out with Leonard and Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory. Twice. And despite the fact that she's voiced a popular Star Wars character, she still has never played a Marvel character on the big or small screen.Read More
It was revealed today in Cannes that Katee Sackhoff will star in the supernatural horror film Don't Knock Twice. The film will be directed by Caradog W. James, known for such genre fare as The Machine and Little White Lies. Don't Knock Twice is being sold in Cannes by Content Media.
In the vein of Candyman meets The Ring, Don't Knock Twice is based on a psychologically terrifying urban legend. To save her estranged daughter, a guilt-ridden mother must uncover the terrifying truth behind the urban legend of a vengeful, demonic witch. Caradog W. James is directing Don't Knock Twice from a script by Emmy nominated writing duo Mark Huckerby and Nick Ostler, who collaborated on Howl.Read More
It has long been rumored that Disney will introduce Captain Marvel at the very end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, as a new team is assembled under Captain America's watch. Though, with the movie just under three months away, we haven't heard any casting news on who will take on the role of Carol Danvers. Jessica Chastain was an early favorite for the character, who will be featured in Marvel's first female superhero adevnture in 2018. Battlestar Galactica star Katee Sackhoff has also been an odds on favorite. But back in November, another, more surprising name threw her hat into the ring. Showing off fan art on her personal Instagram account, Vikings star Katheryn Winnick began to campaign for the role. And in our recent interview with the actress, she claims she's ready to fight Katee Sackhoff for the opportunity to join Marvel's ever-expanding cinematic universe.
You can check out the video interview here. It's not quite clear when Marvel and Disney plan on announcing who their Carol Danvers is, and it has never been confirmed that she will actually appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron. It's also possible that she may be introduced in Captain America: Civil War. But, Marvel is making a big announcement this Thursday about an upcoming movie. We've heard that a director and actor will be revealed for one of the upcoming movies. Will it be Captain Marvel? We have three more days until we find out!Read More
