Ronda Rousey recently did an AMA on Reddit, and one of the questions she answered was which superhero would she love to play in a movie. She answered that she thought she would make a great Captain Marvel or Ms. Marvel. The internet soon provided a ton of great mock-ups and photoshops of the UFC champ in the famous costume.
Rousey re-posted a few on her personal Instagram account.
Kevin Smith, a notable expert on all things from the comic book universe, was recently asked by TMZ if he thought Rousey was a good choice. After all, she already has some acting experience having appeared in Entourage, The Expendables, and Furious 7.
Smith thought it was a perfect fit. We are inclined to agree with him, and not just because he likes talking to us.
Here’s what Smith had to say:
“See her in that picture? Come on, we don’t even need to think on this one, there’s an image and she looks amazing. Lord knows, she’s one of the only people who would play a superhero that could actually beat the shit out of somebody. I would like to see it happen. Seems like she’s got a good head on her shoulders. She followed her dream and holy s**t she’s an asskicker, man. If that doesn’t sound like a superhero to me, I don’t know what is.”
