Ronda Rousey Wants To Play Samus In A Metroid Movie

Ronda Rousey has been vocal about her desire to play comic book heroine Captain Marvel, but now she’s discusses her desire to play a video game heroine as well.

The UFC star tells Gamespot that she’s always wanted to play Samus Aran, the iconic protagonist of Nintendo’s Metroid franchise.

I've always wanted to be Samus. That would be badass. I love how people found out later that it was a hot chick on the inside. And then most of the day you're in a suit, so you can just hang out and eat donuts and be the star of Metroid. I hope they make a movie out of that.

When Rousey mentioned that people “found out later that it was a hot chick” she is referring to the ending of the original Metroid. Since Samus is in her spacesuit throughout the entire Nintendo Entertainment System game, there was no telling what he gender was. It was only upon completion of the game that Samus’ armor came off to reveal her appearance.

If you’re wondering what a Metroid movie might look like, check out the stellar fan film Metroid: The Sky Calls.

    Does she know that the games author once said at a japanese convention that samus is big tall and muscular because she is trans? Seeing as Rousey is ignorant and transphobic this is hilarious.

    How is she transphobic? Because she doesnt think they should be fighting against people who are genetically female? Because she lives MMA and trains regularly with men and knows the physiological difference between men and women that cant be willed or treated away by hormones?

    She needs to learn how to act first, which will probably never happen seeing how terrible she's been so far
