Battlestar Galactica actress and geek goddess Katee Sackhoff has been tweeting some very intriguing stuff over the past few days that could be hinting at the fact that she may be suiting up for a superhero role.

But if this is what's happening, which superhero role?

The actress has been dropping some very interesting clues on Twitter regarding a “super secret job,” and if you'll look at the pics below, it definitely looks like she's being fitted for some sort of costume, including some superhero-ish type of headgear.

As an actress and comic-book fan, Sackhoff has been vocal about her wish to portray iconic comic-book characters such as Carol Danvers, aka Marvel's Ms./Captain Marvel, and DC's Harley Quinn. But we gotta admit, our fingers (and toes) are crossed so that the "super secret job" that the Riddick actress is hinting at is Captain Marvel.

Here’s the first intriguing tweet she dropped on July 29:

Then she followed with these two:

Mmm. The meeting with comic-book legend Stan “The Man” Lee may have nothing at all to do with the other two pics –- even with that red herring leather reference there -- but can we still assume that Sackhoff is indeed involved in one of Marvel’s many projects? Lee doesn’t have anything to do with what Marvel Studios actually does, so perhaps it has more to do with their TV projects that are currently in the pipeline?

But what we really, really wanna to know is this: Is Katee Sackhoff playing Ms./Captain Marvel? Because clue #2 may be hinting strongly at this.

If you guys will recall, Avengers director Joss Whedon recently confirmed that there were four important female roles in Avengers: Age of Ultron. "There are four prominent female roles in the center of the movie," Whedon said, "and I think [there] is a more balanced presence throughout the movie." 

Of those four important female roles, we know of three. They would be Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Scarlet Witch (Elisabeth Olsen) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders). So who's the fourth one?

All evidence and the incessantly buzzing rumor mill point to the fact that we’ll finally get to see Carol Danvers hit the big screen, and having Katee Sackhoff play her would be PERFECT.

However, the third and final clue dropped by Sackhoff is actually making us more confused than ever. Maybe this pic here is a red herring?

Do YOU guys have any clue as to what could be Katee Sackhoff's "super secret job"?
