Ronda Rousey In The New Metroid Movie?
We learned Rounda Rousey is setting her eyes on Hollywood. The champion MMA fighter has openly said she wanted to play Samus if a Metroid movie were to be made. We found some interesting snippets from Entertainment Weekly below we thought you may like.
Ronda Rousey wants to be the next Samus. After all most of us know that Samus was a female in the classic NES Metroid game.
Here is an interview Ronda did with Entertainment Weekly.
Ronda Rousey’s film career is burgeoning. She’s already playing the Patrick Swayze-inspired lead character in the upcoming Road House reboot. But what’s her dream role?
The UFC star revealed that if she could play any video game character, it would be Samus Aran of the Metroid and Super Smash Bros. series.
“I’ve always wanted to be Samus. That would be badass,” she told Gamespot. “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.”
Samus is an intergalactic bounty hunter who wears a weaponized exoskeleton suit. She’s also one of the preeminent protagonists in video game history.
If the Captain Marvel buzz is a precedent, prepare for myriad Photoshopped images of Rousey as Samus. Rousey expressed interest in playing the Marvel comics hero and shared fan art of her in character last summer. (No one has been cast yet in the role yet.)

Chronologically, Metroid takes place first in the fictional Metroid universe. Space Pirates attack a Galactic Federation-owned space research vessel and seize samples of Metroid creatures. Dangerous floating organisms, Metroids can latch on to any organism and drain its life energy to kill it. The Space Pirates plan to replicate Metroids by exposing them to beta rays and then using them as biological weapons to destroy all living beings that oppose them. While searching for the stolen Metroids, the Galactic Federation locates the Space Pirates’ base of operations on the planet Zebes. The Federation assaults the planet, but the Pirates resist, forcing the Federation to retreat. As a last resort, the Federation decides to send a lone bounty hunter to penetrate the Pirates’ base and destroy Mother Brain, the biomechanical life-form that controls the Space Pirates’ fortress and its defenses. Considered the greatest of all bounty hunters, Samus Aran is chosen for the mission. Samus lands on the surface of Zebes and explores the planet, traveling through the planet’s caverns. She eventually comes across Kraid, an ally of the Space Pirates, and Ridley, the Space Pirates’ commander, and defeats them both. Eventually, Samus finds and destroys Mother Brain. She then places a time bomb set for 999 seconds, and escapes the collapsing lair.
