COMIC REEL: Winnick Talks "Captain Marvel"; Highmore Would "Love To Be Considered" For Spider-Man


MovieWeb talked to "Vikings" star Katheryn Winnick earlier this week and got her thoughts about playing Carol Danvers in "Captain Marvel."

"Are you kidding me? I would love to!" said Winnick. "I would love to do that. I'm such a big fan of those movies and comic books. It would be a dream come true, and I love kicking butt. Lagertha, my ['Vikings'] character kicks butt in the dark ages so it'd be interesting to go into the future and do a fantasy one as well." You can check out the interview clip below, which also includes Winnick's thoughts on fellow Captain Marvel fan favorite Katee Sackhoff.

CBR has a report from a recent "Powers" press event that found series villain Eddie Izzard discussing what attracted him to his character.

"['Powers' showrunner] Charlie Huston wrote me a letter about the character," Izzard said. "It was an unusual letter. It was almost poetic in the darkness of the character. And I thought this would be interesting. 'If this guy's in charge of writing it, I think I will go and do this.'"

Izzard also compared his character to another breakout TV villain, Hannibal. "Hannibal is a character that eats people, but in this beautiful, psychotic, sociopathic way -- very precise, very cuisine, very music," Izzard told reporters. "I'm eating people, but I'm inhaling people. I said, 'We've got to drive him towards a lion-esque point of view.'"
