It looks like Ronda Rousey isn’t just looking to play Captain Marvel in the MCU movie, but has her eye on a videogame adaptation too.

The UFC star – and sometimes actress – has been chatting about her desire to play Samus Aran, the iconic protagonist of Nintendo’s Metroid franchise.

Rousey has given the role some thought and, we must admit, we like her take on it too: “I’ve always wanted to be Samus. That would be badass. 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.”

We have no idea if a Metroid movie is being considered but a) we’d love to see Rousey in the role and b) we love how nerdy she is.

Make this happen, Nintendo!

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
