Is Katee Sackhoff Getting Closer To Joining Marvel?

With all this recent chatter about introducing more female superheroes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, many comic book movie fans have found themselves repeating one name: Katee Sackhoff.

What's more, The Avengers: Age of Ultron's Joss Whedon had an interesting thing to say about her when the new female Thor was announced earlier this month:
