Ronda Rousey Talks Captain Marvel
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:
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.
