A movie based on Marvel Comics Captain Marvel is slated for 2018. While the flick is some years away, all anyone can talk about is just who is going to play the title character. Currently there is so many fandom campaigns for various actresses to play Miss Marvel a.k.a Carol Danvers. With names like Katee Sackoff, Natalie Dormer, Charlize Theron and Jessica Chastain being some of the top picks.
Now another name is being thrown into the mix. Ultimate Fighting Champion Ronda Rousey!
Rousey has revealed that she would love to play the Marvel Comics character Miss Marvel in a movie. When a Reddit user asked Rousey which superhero she’d love to play, Rousey responded “A lot of the good ones have been taken, but I’d like to vie for Miss Marvel!”
Ronda has already made some films (most recently featured in the Entourage movie) and is quite good. Ronda takes everything seriously, her fights, her training, acting. She has an unprecedented resolve and work ethic. She would do a great job which ever character she would represent, especially a Super Hero because she is already practically superhuman.
Plus, Rousey is a geek just like the rest of us. She has a love and passion for Pokemon, Dragon Ball Z, and Game of Thrones.
While it would be spiffy seeing Rousey fly through space smashing spaceships and firing energy blasts from her fists, she doesn’t have the cinematic star power quite yet to lead a film. The role of Captain Marvel will either go an A Lister or more likely an unknown. It is entirely probable, given Ronda’s new famed celebrity and titan physique, that we will eventually get to see her play a super hero in a supporting role.
