Huh… not a bad choice at all.
Joss Whedon, the director of The Avengers and The Avengers: Age of Ultron, took to the world wide interwebs in support of Marvel comics brand new Thor (she’s a lady, by the way). As a long time proponent for well written female roles, Whedon should naturally L.O.V.E. this new boob-armored God of Thunder, but he went a little further then I expected. Indulging in a little bit of fan-casting, as he’s wont to do, Whedon suggested (or ,rather, implied) one actress for the Lady Thor gig.
Katee Sackhoff. That’s right, Starbuck from Battlestar Gallactica has been nominated by the King of Fanboys (and Fangirls) as our new God of Thunder. And I’m totally alright with it.
A female Thor? What the hell makes them think THAT would be cool? pic.twitter.com/Tg2Ti8PIOo

Although, Katee Sackhoff would probably portray a better Captain Marvel than Thor. She’s got the right looks, the perfect ‘badass soldier’ pedigree, and the viciousness to pull of that character. Marvel Studios has already discussed an unnamed role with the actress, and even though our fan castings aren’t always realized, I think a Sackhoff Captain Marvel could still be in the works.
She was BORN for the part. Just take a look at this fan art below. She’s just too damn perfect of an actress to pass up. Get your act together, Marvel!!!
