SDCC: Marvel: Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends Panel
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.”
