Marvel has yet to cast Carol Danvers for the
Ms. Captain Marvel movie, but now we have a possible contender.
During a Reddit Q&A, MMA fighter and actress Ronda Rousey has stated she is interested in the role.
“Well… a lot of the good ones have been taken, but I’d like to vie for Miss Marvel,” Rousey responded when asked if she was cast in a super hero movie, which hero would she play.
Ronda Rousey is no stranger to big action sequences, so Carol Danvers (Marvel changed her name to Captain Marvel) would probably fit the MMA figher quite well. Rousey had a cool fight scene in Fast & Furious 7 with Michelle Rodriguez, was featured in The Expendables 3, Entourage and will be featured in the upcoming action flick Mile 22 starring Mark Wahlberg.
Ronda Rousey is currently undefeated and has been exchanging words back and forth with Floyd Mayweather. Rousey recently admitted she would probably lose to Mayweather in a boxing match, but stated in a no-rules fight, she could beat anyone.
“Floyd is one of the best boxers of all time,” Rousey said, reports ESPN. “He would definitely beat me in a boxing match. I unfortunately don’t get into ‘matches.’ I fight for a living. In a no-rules fight, I believe I can beat anyone on this planet. Boxing is a sweet science with strict rules that I respect very much and aspire every day to improve at. But you said ruleless fight, and that’s my honest answer.”
