Kevin Smith Backs Ronda Rousey for "Captain Marvel" Film

"Mallrats" director Kevin Smith shared his support for Ronda Rousey, explaining how well she would fit the starring role of "Captain Marvel" and why she would make a great superhero, during a conversation with TMZ.

"See her in that picture? Come on! You don't even need to think at this point. There's an image; we can see it. She looks amazing. Lord knows she's one of the only people who would play a superhero that could actually beat the [censored] out of somebody. I would like to see it happen. She seems like she's got a good head on her shoulders. She followed her dream and, holy [censored], she's an ass-kicker. If that doesn't sound like a superhero, I don't know what is."

Rousey, who recently shared her wish to play Captain Carol Danvers in an Ask Me Anything session with fans, made her desire for the role a bit more pronounced Saturday when she shared fan art showing herself illustrated in the full Captain Marvel regalia.

The undefeated UFC champ is no stranger to Hollywood, having recently appeared in both "Furious 7" and the "Entourage" movie. Additionally, she is quite the nerd herself, having been a moderator for a "Pokemon" fan forum in her youth.

Written by Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve, "Captain Marvel" is scheduled for release on November 2, 2018.
