Ronda Rousey Wants to Play Samus in a ‘Metroid’ Film

UFC Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is very vocal about her desire to play Captain Marvel in Marvel Studio’s upcoming film of the same name, but Carol Danvers isn’t the only blond badass she has her eyes on. As it turns out, she’s very interested in playing Samus if a “Metroid” film ever gets made.

“I’ve always wanted to be Samus,” she revealed to GameSpot. “That would be badass. I love how people found out later that it was a hot chick on the inside. And then most of the day you’re in a suit, so you can just hang out and eat donuts and be the star of ‘Metroid.’ I hope they make a movie out of that.”

Rousey also discussed how the upcoming “Warcraft” film helped her get into “World of Warcraft,” saying, “It’s funny because they were making a ‘Warcraft’ movie, I was like ‘I want to do that!’ That’s what made me start playing ‘World of Warcraft.’ And so I got into it backwards like that. It started out as role research for something I knew I would never get — I didn’t have time or they were already filming it. It’s kinda cool when two worlds connect like when they make a movie based on a book, and you go buy the book because you know if the book is being made into a movie it must be pretty good.”

“I think they should make more movies based on video games to be honest,” she added. “I think that would be really cool.”

    She really really wants a film career.

    Giganta is more fitting for her

    As much as I love the metroid games, they would be extremely hard to do as a film anyway. The most filmic aspects of them are, essentially, just Alien, and much of the rest comes from a feeling of loneliness and isolation as you explore weird landscapes – not exactly Holly woods thing.

    Also, not sure how practical it is for Samus to eat donuts in her suit.

    She’d be an awesome Samus.

    but samus was a women

    they would have to CGI shrink her build like they did in Captain America and do a before and after bit if she gets Captain Marvel. I would like to see it.

    I LOVE Metroid, particularly the original platform side-scrolling ones. Still, I don’t know if I’d want Rousey doing it. But I give her points for bringing it up. I also agree with you on the feelings of loneliness and the overall atmosphere of Metroid. It’s a world populated with all sorts of different creatures, yet as Samus I’m not sure I’ve ever felt more alone playing a game but at the same time the exploring aspect is exhilarating. Can’t really count how many hours I’ve put in playing games in this series.

    Watching her pursue role after role is like watching a dog trying to chase cars on the highway, you know once she finally catches one it will be a total disaster but you can’t help but stare and gawk.

  • Hadrian Mosley

    They could easily adapt it, just make it more of a survival film. She goes out on a hunt, ship gets damaged and she’s stranded.

  • darkflame

    Probably the right direction to take. I still think it wouldn’t be easy though. A essentially 1 cast member film, who doesn’t talk much (sure she can make a few logs, but she isnt going to invent a imaginary friend to talk to) – yet also need a decent budget to pull of a genuinely alien world. (not merely “forest world” or “desert world” like sci-fis do a bit too much)

    She needs to give up this pipe dream about acting.
