Katie Sackoff wants to be Typhoid Mary

Recommended Posts

These days, there are a lot of new sources for news and scoops and one of the oddest ones might be the local comic shop who have become the go-to place for actors hoping to get coveted roles in the latest superhero movie.

The blog for the Los Angeles-based store Golden Apple Comics spotted one such actor when "Battlestar Gallactica" star Katee Sackhoff went there to buy every single comic featuring Typhoid Mary she could get her hands on with "hopes to get a part for a marvel movie."

Comic fans will realize right away that Typhoid Mary is the longtime foe (and lover) of Marvel's Daredevil, a mutant with a multiple personality who develops various powers depending on which personality inhabits her at the time. She was created by Ann Nocenti and John Romita Jr., first appearing in their run with Daredevil #254.

That makes one wonder whether Marvel Studios are already looking into possibly relaunching Daredevil on the big screen, following the Mark Steven Johnson version starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, which came out in 2003. Natassia Malthe played Typhoid in the 2005 spin-off Elektra with Garner. Typhoid also appeared in the early "Deadpool" comics, so this might be for the Deadpool spin-off with Ryan Reynolds.


Does this mean the Daredevil rights went back to Marvel because they never made a sequel?

It just doesn't feel right. Marvel would have announced making a Daredevil movie before even thinking of casting. Look how long it took to get Thor, and we still have no Cap. I get the feeling this is for the Deadpool movie, and she accidentally said Marvel instead of Fox.
