Re: Avengers 2 News, Rumors, Etc. Pictures until release...

The difference between Marvel and DC movies:

DC: Ben Affleck as Batman
Marvel: Katee Sackhoff as Ms. Marvel!

'nuff said.

Academy award winning writer and producer, who has directed and starred in a Best Picture winner as Batman.

Actress with no major awards with only one truly notable credit to date as Ms. Marvel.

Yeah, you're right, 'nuff said.


(For the record, I think Sackhoff is a fine actress and would totally support her as Carol Danvers.)

Have you seen Daredevil? Superheroing ain't his thing. Hell, IMO, acting ain't his thing. Haven't seen Argo, so cannot say either way about him as a director.

Ms. Sackhoff, on the other hand, is a natural fit for the character of Carol Danvers/Ms. Marvel. We already know she can pull-off a character with a military background quite well.

Re: Avengers 2 News, Rumors, Etc. Pictures until release...

People need to quit bringing up Daredevil. Daredevil was ten years ago! Is it so impossible for people to comprehend that he might have grown as an actor in ten years? Anyone who has seen The Town or Argo can attest to that. Affleck's acting chops are not an issue. Heck, I would even argue that Affleck was not the problem with Daredevil. The problem was a script full of holes, many of which are fixed by the Director's Cut. Seriously, anyone who has not seen the Director's Cut of Daredevil really should. It actually turns it into a pretty good film.

Hopefully it won't be Starbuck in Captain Marvel costume.

Katee Sackhoff will look great in the costume, and...

I know there was something else I wanted to say, but I just can't think of it right now...

Whedon on Spader:

http://www.superherohype.com/news/ar...ader-as-ultron

"Spader was my first and only choice. He's got that hypnotic voice that can be eerily calm and compelling, but he's also very human and humorous. Ultron is not Hal (from 2001: A Space Odyssey). Spader can play all of the levels. He's the guy to break The Avengers into pieces."

The invite was right there in the pilot of Buffy.

"James Spader?"
"He needs to call me!"

Sackhoff quells Ms. Marvel rumors. Says she was "misinterpreted".

Re: Avengers 2 News, Rumors, Etc. Pictures until release...

Still, with this story out there now, perhaps it will encourage her to pursue the role. And also encourage Marvel to stick her in a damn movie already!

I do have a question regarding Carol though...in the comics Jessica Drew is her best friend, and as most of you know, Jessica Drew is Spider-Woman. Now I looked it up and Sony does not have the rights to her (she's not part of the IP). So I'm curious, would Sony cause a stink if Marvel were to use her in one of their movies?

Doubt it. Except for the word "Spider", Spider-man and Spider-Woman really have no connection to each other.

I still don't think Marvel would use her at the risk of Sony causing a stink for whatever reason though. I'd love to see her, because along with Captain Marvel, she's one of my favorite characters.

I think Marvel would shy away from using it because people would think it's an odd Spiderman ripoff (regardless of what Sony would think). I don't think Spiderwoman is iconic enough. Black Widow, Captain Marvel, and maybe a few others would be smarter choices for a female franchise lead.
