Ronda Rousey Wants to Play CAPTAIN MARVEL
We still have a long way to go before we see Captain Marvel make her appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the studio is eventually going to have to cast someone to play her. We’ve heard rumors of Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt, and Yvonne Strahovski being up for the role, but what about someone who we know for a fact can really kick some ass?
During a recent Reddit AMA, MMA fighting champion Ronda Rousey was asked, “If you were to be in a superhero movie, which hero would you play?” She replied:
“Well... a lot of the good ones have been taken, but I'd like to vie for Miss Marvel.”
This doesn’t mean that she’s been offered the role, or even if she’s in contention for it. All this means is that she’s interested in the role, and if Marvel did want to take a meeting with her, she would happily oblige.
I think she would look great in the role, and she obviously could pull off the kick-ass action of the character. Unfortunately, her acting skills really aren’t up to par yet. She needs a lot of work in that area, but she'll get better and better the more she continues to do it.
I doubt Marvel would cast her. She might not be the kind of actress they are looking for. But for discussion's sake, do you think that she would make a good Captain Marvel?
