When it comes to Ronda Rousey I am 100% #teamrousey. Not only does her skill in the octagon make every fight a specticle, but her as a person outside the ring is also something to take note of. From her time as a admin on a Pokemon forum moderator, her love of WWE, her love for Dragon Ball Z and of course her comment about the upcoming Captain Marvel movie.
During a Reddit AMA Ronda was asked what superhero she would like to play, she responded with Captain Marvel. The response was joyous and everyone said that she would be a perfect Carol Danvers for the the Captain Marvel film, which is set to open in 2018. This was just all fun and jokes, but the internet took the joke a step further and started to send Ronda fan art of her as Captain Marvel via Instagram and Twitter. Ronda started re-posting the images and now a subtle march to have her play Captain Marvel has began.
Since the reddit AMA I’ve received so many badass Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel edits! There were so many cool ones I couldn’t pick just one to share – here’s 1 series of 2 Big thank you to contributing artists: @bosslogix (two on right) and @salman.artworks (left)

With all the buzz and popularity that Ronda Rousey has, it would behoove Marvel Entertainment to at least give it a thought. She’s young enough that she could continue to play Captain Marvel in future movies and honestly there’s no other female out there that looks more like the character. Ronda’s been in front of the camera no only in interviews, but also with The Expendables 3, Furious 7 and Entourage so she’s no stranger to being in a movie.
I’d like to see her as Captain Marvel, what do you think?
