Ronda Rousey threw out her desire to play Samus in an adaptation of the loved Metroid series. I have mixed feelings about this movie being made and over who would be a good casting, but this would be intriguing. I think with any role in a suit there is a temptation like in the Sly Stallone Judge Dredd to have the helmet off all the time to show off your star (Too old a reference how about Venom in Spiderman 3?). But that takes away from the character a little bit. It would be the problem that would face a Halo adaptation as Master Chief is never out of his suit. However, Rousey addresses it right up front in her quote to Gamespot
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.”
She is open to having a large portion of the movie in the suit. Maybe they do the Robert Downey Jr. inside the helmet shot from Iron Man to let her act, but as a newer actress this might cover up some of her flaws as she grows in the craft. And she isn’t afraid to step into some big shoes since she is starring in a Roadhouse remake already. If she rips a man’s throat out with her bare hands as Swayze did I might be excited to see her take on a Metroid film. Anyone have a better casting idea?
