The actress tried to remain tight-lipped about the rumors, claiming she had not heard them. She feigned not knowing which studio was even making the movie, but eventually revealed that Disney has been checking her availability for the first quarter of 2014.
The grilling of Katee Sackhoff continued, with the rumor that she might be up for Jessica Jones, Luke Cage's girlfriend, addressed. She quickly brushed that notion off to the side.
While the actress didn't specifically say she was in talks to play Ms. Marvel, the possibility of the former Battlestar Galactica joining the Marvel universe remains an intriguing and very possible prospect. Ms. Marvel (a.k.a. Carol Danvers), debuted during the Silver Age of comics in the 1970s, a United States Air Force officer who possesses super-human strength, speed and stamina, along with pre-cognitive "sixth sense" ability. In the Marvel comic books, she has been linked to both the Avengers and X-Men teams. Is it possible that Marvel may be recruiting her for a role in The Avengers: Age of Ultron? We don't know for certain, at this time. But it is shooting in the first quarter of 2014.
As you likely recall, Vin Diesel set off a flurry of fanboy speculation earlier this summer, when he revealed in June that he had taken a meeting at Marvel Studios. Just a few short months later, the actor was confirmed to lend his voice to Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy.
Although we haven't heard about a Ms. Marvel movie in development yet, Marvel's Kevin Feige recently hinted that they want to develop a superhero movie with a female lead.
However, he also said that, due to their current development slate, this female-driven superhero movie is still a long ways away.
