Forget Captain Marvel, Katheryn Winnick has her sights set on the DC Films Universe.
Prior to Brie Larson landing the lead role as Carol Danvers in the upcoming Captain Marvel film, the Vikings star was fan-favorite for the role, but of course, there are many other female superheroes up for grabs. Winnick recently expressed interest in playing Black Canary when a fan contacted her on Twitter asking if she would want to play the character if DC made a Green Arrow movie. As you can see in the tweet below, Winnick is game if DC is:

Winnick may soon get her chance. Rumors have suggested that the Harley Quinn spin-off movie, which is still in the very early stages of development, will be focused on the Birds of Prey comic arc, of which Black Canary is a part of. If DC ends looking for an actress to cast in the role, Winnick would certainly fit the bill, as she’s already proven her physicality through multiple seasons of Vikings. In other words, she is definitely superhero material.Katie Cassidy as Black Canary in ‘Arrow’ Via; DC Entertainment
