Ronda Rousey Talks Captain Marvel
We're definitely of the opinion that Ronda Rousey would make a great Captain Marvel, and thankfully so is she. The UFC champion and future star of the Roadhouse remake sat down for an interview with Entertainment Tonight recently where she revealed how she plans to go about landing the coveted role of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's first solo female hero. 

Before Roadhouse, Rousey's first starring role will be in next year's Mile 22, alongside Mark Wahlberg, and she's hoping that her performance in that film will help springboard her into contention for the role of Carol Danvers. She says:

Opening quote
"I'm really looking forward to doing my first starring role opposite Mark Wahlberg. Hopefully by the time Captain Marvel comes around I will have enough experience and skills in the field for [Marvel] to seriously consider me."
Closing quote


We have to believe Rousey is in contention even before she stars in her upcoming film projects because Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige more or less said that she was. Following a fan campaign to land Rousey in the role, complete with Rousey posting some fan art of herself as Captain Marvel on Instagram, Feige said he loved the enthusiasm fans were showing for the character.



Your move, Marvel. It's never too soon to start casting!
