- O'Neill: Oh here we go, another scientist. General, please.
- Carter: Theoretical astrophysicist.
- O'Neill: Which means...?

I will always be there for you….No matter what

Carter: Thank you, Sir.
O’Neill: For what?
O’Neill: Think nothing of it. I’ve got plenty of that.
Unpopular opinion, but Katee Sackoff is not my 616 Carol Danvers.
Nothing against Sackoff — I just think she’s much too young (and not quite the right build) to pull off any comics or cartoon version of Carol Danvers. Now, if the MCU decided to introduce a younger Major Carol Danvers, then Sackoff would be fantastic, I’m sure. But comics!Carol is a retired full bird colonel, which puts her age at mid 40s. Early 40s, at an absolute minimum, but I would rather see Carol in her mid-to-late 40s. After all, Carol worked for NASA after the Air Force, so we have to imagine some time has passed since her retirement.
If Marvel Studios ever got over their sexism and cast an “older” actress, then Amanda Tapping is the obvious choice, IMHO. Had Captain Marvel been introduced in 2008 instead of Iron Man, Tapping would have been the absolute perfect age. (She’s now 48, which is pushing it a little. But hey, RDJ is way older than comics Tony should be, so what do I know.)
I’ve captioned these photos, so please take a look! You can’t tell me that Amanda Tapping, all suited up in the cockpit of a fighter jet, doesn’t scream “Captain Marvel” to you…
