Ronda Rousey has been subtly campaigning to be in Marvel movie as the Wonder Woman, but that doesn’t mean that the studios are ready to sign the UFC champion. Good thing that Ronda Rousey has the upcoming fight against Holly Holm to distract herself with!
According to IGN , the UFC bantamweight champion is “far from the first actor to petition themselves for an uncast Marvel role, and that sort of enthusiasm is something that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige appreciates.”
But that doesn’t mean that the Marvel movie president was eager to get in touch with Ronda Rousey as soon as possible. In fact, he insinuated at the fact that he would rather cast people who are far from being Wonder Woman to bring out the complex side of the character.
He said, “You look at the ways we’ve cast our films in the past and it’s always about who’s the best person to inhabit the character, whether that is an actor like Chris Hemsworth who bulks up, or a wrestler like Dave Bautista who played Drax who ends up being an amazing performer, an amazing actor and a clever and witty and pointed comedic actor.”
Sounds like Ronda has to let this Marvel movie dream go.
But she is already busy enough preparing for the next fight against Holly Holm in Australia.
According to For the Win, “Undefeated UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was originally scheduled to fight former boxer Holly Holm at UFC 195 in January, but UFC president Dana White announced Friday that the bout has been moved to November 14th in Australia.”
Seeing how Ronda Rousey is boasting 12-0 record, Holly Holm better bring a strong fight to even contend with “Rowdy”.
