She was misunderstood...
Well, this is somewhat disappointing. Last week it was reported that Katee Sackhoff had revealed on a recent podcast when asked about whether she would like to be in a Marvel film that "people have checked my availability," making people wonder if she would be playing Captain/Ms. Marvel in a future film. But as she has clarified with Crave Online, that quote was misinterpreted and she hasn't spoken with the studio.
"You know, you say one thing..." Sackhoff said. "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."
She continued, "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."
When asked about Ms. Marvel, Sackhoff said, "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."
