Ronda Rousey May Just Be the Next Marvel Superhero the World Is Waiting For

Ronda Rousey May Just Be the Next Marvel Superhero the World Is Waiting For

It comes as little surprise that UFC champion and media darling Ronda Rousey will star in the role of Ms. Marvel — the umbrella name for the band of superheroines that appeared in the comic book series. 

When asked about her dream superhero in a Reddit Q&A last week, Rousey was quick to suggest her interest in playing Ms. Marvel. 


Her response sparked a flood of images of Ronda portrayed as various superheroes.

"Since the Reddit AMA I've received so many badass Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel edits!" Rousey shared on her Instagram page. "There were so many cool ones I couldn't pick just one to share."

Though Ronda has revved up enough excitement to reach executives at Marvel, she's not the only one in the running.

Both Eden Sher and Charlize Theron are rumored to be in consideration for the coveted comic book role. 

At this point, casting decisions remain mere speculations, but with Rousey's track record of proving the world she's capable of anything, she's completely fair game.
