You can add Kevin Smith to the list of fanboys who are totally down with the idea of Ronda Rousey playing Captain Marvel. The Clerks and Tusk director threw his support behind the UFC champion without hesitation, proving Rousey has a wide base of support across the geekosphere for cinching the role. Via TMZ:
“See her in that picture? Come on, we don’t even need to think on this one, there’s an image and she looks amazing. Lord knows, she’s one of the only people who would play a superhero that could actually beat the shit out of somebody. I would like to see it happen. Seems like she’s got a good head on her shoulders. She followed her dream and holy s**t she’s an asskicker, man. If that doesn’t sound like a superhero to me, I don’t know what is.”
During her recent Reddit AMA, Rousey casually mentioned she’d be down for playing the role of the female superhero, currently penciled in by Marvel Studios to hit theaters in November 2018. As soon as she posted that desire to the net, the internet started churning out amazing fanart of Ronda as Marvel.
