With the huge success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe over the past few years, as well as the recent X-Men movies, and not forgetting the DC Extended Universe (although that has yet to really impress), it is no surprise that we are seeing more and more Hollywood stars putting their name out there and admitting that they would definitely be up for taking on the role of a superhero in a comic book movie.
One of the names that seems to keep popping up on a regular basis, when it comes to the casting of a new female superhero, is that of the beautiful and talented actress Katheryn Winnick, who seems to have got a lot of backing from the comic book movie fans. Katheryn has become very popular over the past few years, thanks to her role on the hit television series Vikings, and now fans want her on the big screen in a superhero movie.
There was quite a big campaign made from fans, who were calling for Katheryn Winnick to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the role of Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel, before it was announced that Brie Larson had been cast in the role. Now it seems that the fans are interested in seeing Katheryn joining the DC Extended Universe, with calls for her to be cast as the big screen version of Black Canary.
Actress Katie Cassidy already plays the role of Black Canary in the DCTV universe, but as we already know, the movie universe is using different actors for the same characters. So, the fans have called for Katheryn Winnick to land the role of Black Canary in the DC Extended Universe, and the actress herself has admitted that she would definitely be up for playing the role. We guess that means it will go to someone else then.
