Have you guys watched the famous TV series from History Channel called “Vikings”? It’s considered as one of the best action-drama show based on the concept of Vikings by the critics and has even won an Emmy Award. If you have seen Vikings show, then you would surely remember the Canadian actress Katheryn Winnick, who played the role of a strong woman named Lagertha! In the Vikings, Lagertha is shown as a fierce, bold and powerful woman.
Because of her famous role of Lagertha, Katheryn packs a massive international loyal fan base, who wants her to suit up as a superhero in the comic book movies. Her fans have initiated many petitions to get her cast for roles like Captain Marvel (Which went to Brie Larson), Emma Frost, Polaris, and even for Wonder Woman. She didn’t get select for any of these roles, and fans had given up the hope, but it looks like her stars are changing their positions.
Back in 2016, Katheryn had shared a fan-made picture of herself as Black Canary, which got immense re-tweets and shares on the social media.

Back then, it seemed like she is lobbying for the role, by displaying her interest. This is common thing on social media, a lot of actors have done this, some of the good examples are -> Nathon Fillion pitched Booster Gold, Terry Crews asked for Silver Surfer or Luke Cage, Ronda Rousey ruffled many feathers by pitching for Captain Marvel, Tyrese Gibson shared his conversation with WB for Green Lantern’s role, and even Walking Dead Star Norman Reedus asked for “Ghost Rider’s” character.
But all of this became serious when Katheryn posted a 15-second video recently saying that she has a big announcement for us at the upcoming Comic Con!
@KatheryneWinnick is working on a secret project that will be announced at SDCC.
