PREVIEWS: "Spider-Gwen," "Chewbacca" & More Marvel Comics on Sale October 14, 2015
Here’s an interesting little tidbit: apparently Katee Sackhoff visited L.A. comics shop Golden Apple Comics a couple of weeks ago. The Golden Apple blog reports that “she proceeded to grab all the Typhoid Mary comics we had and has hopes to get a part for a Marvel movie.”
Sackhoff is best known as Starbuck from the Sci Fi Channel’s Battlestar Galactica reboot — but is she destined for a reboot of Marvel’s Daredevil? Rumors have been floating around that Fox is interested in another take on the property (as well as Fantastic Four) before the rights revert back to Marvel. A Daredevil movie that drew heavily from Ann Nocenti’s take on the character doesn’t sound like too bad of an idea to me (of course, I never thought the first Daredevil movie was as bad as most people seemed to think it was … Elektra, though, was probably worse).
MTV’s Splash Page runs down possible movies that could feature Typhoid Mary, noting that Daredevil is probably the most obvious, since that’s where the character debuted, but also mentions Deadpool and even Avengers as longshots.
So what do you think? Would Sackhoff make a good Typhoid Mary?
