Actress Katee Sackhoff is fine missing out on 'Captain Marvel' role as it would have been 'boring' being a hero.
The 36-year-old was at the centre of a fan campaign to get filmmakers to cast her as the superhero for an upcoming standalone film. Though the role in the 2019 project ultimately went to Brie Larson, Sackhoff isn't too disappointed because she doesn't think she'd have enjoyed the role, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
'No, it wasn't meant to be. I had meetings with Marvel but I don't know if it was for 'Captain Marvel' specifically. I don't like playing the hero anyway - it's boring,' Sackoff told Metro newspaper.
Sackoff thinks the fan campaign she did for getting the part ended up pushing the role further away from her grasp.
'They don't work. They potentially do the opposite. No executive wants to do what the masses tell them to. They always go for the unexpected because they all want to be the hero that saves the series. They don't want to jump on a bandwagon. I can't think of an example where it's ever worked,' she said.
