Ronda Rousey Talks Marvel Superhero Ambitions

When she's not dispensing challengers in under a minute, undefeated UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has a side job as a budding movie star, appearing in "The Expendables 3," "Furious 7" and the "Entourage" film. She's already starring in a film based on her autobiography, but according to a Reddit AMA on Monday, she's not ruling out a superhero role.

When asked "If you were to be in a superhero movie, which hero would you play?," Rousey responded, "well... a lot of the good ones have been taken, but I'd like to vie for Miss Marvel." The answer has widely been interpreted that she's talking about the former Ms. Marvel, Carol Danvers -- who after all, is at the center of the currently in-development Marvel Studios "Captain Marvel" film, scheduled for release in 2018.

While there's still no confirmed frontrunner for the Carol Danvers role, Rousey expressing interest during a Reddit chat with fans is obviously no indicator of any actual motion on her part or Marvel's. But Rousey has made her affection for geeky entertainment clear -- she's made her love for "Dragon Ball Z" loud and clear, and discussed her Pokemon video games preferences during the same AMA session.

Rousey debuted in the UFC in the company's very first women's match in February 2013. Since then, she's exploded in mainstream popularity as she's continued to rack up impressive victories; with her last four fights lasting around a minute or (much) less.
