After declaring her interest in the role during a Reddit AMA last week, UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has continued to campaign for the lead in Marvel’s upcoming feature Captain Marvel. Following the declaration of interest, fans have inundated the UFC starlet with fan art depicting Rousey as the Marvel heroine. Rousey posted the following images on her Instagram account:
After less than stellar performances in Fast 7, Entourage and Expendables 3, the lead in her own Marvel film would serve as a huge gamble, but one that would be popular amongst a select audience. Recently, Paramount Pictures announced that Rousey would star in a film adaptation of her autobiography My Fight/Your Fight, so she’ll certainly be showing up on the big screen even more in the future.
Captain Marvel is set for release on November 2, 2018.
