A couple of weeks ago, MMA superstar Ronda Rousey revealed in an Ask-Me-Anything on Reddit that she was interested in being cast for a pretty big role in a Marvel Studios film. Being blonde, tall, strong, and capable of beating people to bloody pulps, it was little surprise that she was interested in playing Captain Marvel, who will be the subject of her own film in 2018. A lot of fans like the idea of Rousey as Marvel, she’s got the stature and the gravitas, the only question is does she have the acting chops? That may be a moot point soon as Rousey builds her CV, but one producer has heard enough, and he wants Rousey for Captain Marvel. Well, er, the porn version anyway.
According to TMZ, the offer comes from adult film uber-producer Axel Braun, who’s the king of superhero porn parodies, as well as porn parodies of Star Wars, Star Trek, Ghostbusters, Glee and various fairy tales. In order to secure Rousey for the title role in Captain Marvel XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, Braun has offered the mixed-martial arts master a pay check of $5 million for her, ahem, services. To put that in perspective, Braun offered Christine Ouzounian, the former nanny of Ben “Bat” Affleck $1 million to appear as Batwoman in Batman vs Superman XXX.
Braun, ever the classy guy, included an advanced apology with the offer in case he offended Rousey. But Rousey, no matter what she thinks of the offer, is probably so focused on having on a long-term mainstream career in film that appearing in a porno is a non-consideration no matter how flattering it is to see the number of zeroes on the offer.
No matter the odds of her getting to play the actual Captain Marvel in the Marvel Studios film, Rousey seems to have her eyes set making the kind of transition from sports entertainment to film that Dwayne Johnson did all those years ago. She’s made the first moves with appearances in Entourage and Furious 7, and she has a lot of opportunities before her that will enable Rousey to spread her wings as an actor. It’s not outside the realm of possibility that she could come to the big screen as Captain Marvel in November 2018.
In other words, Sorry Axel.
