Ronda Rousey Wants To Star As Samus In A Nintendo Movie

Ronda Rousey, mixed martial artist, actress and avid gamer, has revealed that she would love to star as Samus Aran from the Metroid series in a hypothetical Nintendo movie. We already know that Nintendo is looking to expand its empire outside of video games with theme parks and a rumoured Legend of Zelda TV show for Netflix. Do you think Rousey would be a good fit as Samus Aran?

What movie based on a video game would you want to be the star of?

“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.”

    ~*Ronda Rousey is hot, she has dirty blonde hair, she can kick the ass of most men, she’s not a bad actor when she’s playing a character that is very similar to herself, and she’s not a girly girl. In other words, Ronday Rousey as Samus Aran in a Metroid movie please! If Samus Aran was more like Ronda in Other M, I bet it would have done a hell of a lot better than what it did.*~

      ~*The fact she wasn’t given the role of Wonder Woman in the Batman VS Superman movie was such a dumb move on Warner Bros’s part! Instead of giving the role to a woman that can kick ass & was already built for the role, they give it to someone that would have been better playing the smaller & more scrawny Zatanna instead.*~

  2. Eh, that might work out honestly. Can’t really think of anyone in particular i’d want playing Samus more than her.

        1. 😶Oh shit I’ll um be back in like 42 mins. I’m going to take this picture in the um shower with me now. Exuuuuse me bitches.

          1. I like all parts of the female body :). Boobs are nice sure, but yes, no reply to him because of the second thing haha. Idc what he said, I accidentally hit reply under his comment. : f

  3. I think Rousey would be an ideal character for a Metroid picture. Nintendo should choose LIONSGATE and a director to make that movie!

  4. There are a lot more things that I would be concerned about in a Nintendo movie than actors. Such as… plot. And who’s making it. And whether it will be a live-action/CGI like Sega plans to do, lol.

  5. Oh, I could totally see her taking the role of no-nonsense, confident bounty hunter Samus any day.

    If ever a Metroid movie were made, if she’s Samus, they get really good CGI for Ridley, and the plot/script aren’t written by Sakamoto, I’d see it in theaters thrice.

    1. Before Other M, Sakamoto would have been the first person you ask to write a story for anything Metroid since he was responsible for the stories in the original Metroid, Metroid 2, Metroid 3 widely known as Super Metroid, & Metroid 4 widely known as Metroid Fusion. Other M would have been his next best story if he wasn’t trying to turn Samus into something many just don’t see her as. He actually should be given a chance to redeem himself one day since his first 4 times as Metroid head writer is what made many of us love the series. He just needs a little help in the character portrayal department when it comes to Samus herself the next time they decide to give her a bloody voice.

  6. Eh, this is the same as when people suggest various models for Comic book movie roles. Fitting the body type and general vibe of a character isn’t the same as being able to act. If she was a part of WWE, then maybe, with most of that being acting, but otherwise she’s just another sports player who will have the eyes of some fandom for their interests, and quickly fade back into the interest of those interested more in the sport than the personalities of the players, that’s just how that goes.

    1. Sometimes you don’t need to be a great actor to play the role of a character similar to your own real life personality. If Samus was more like Ronda Rousey in Other M, I guarantee that game wouldn’t have been nearly as bad as it ended up being for so many that wanted a bad ass Samus. Just watch The Expendables 3. She’s not that bad an actor when, like I said, she’s given a role that fits her own personality.

        1. The Expendables created by Sylvester Stallone himself is a trilogy of bad movies? *right eye twitch* No, no. Not getting into this. It’s your opinion.

          <.< *walks away glaring* lol

            1. More like your trash because it’s my treasure. Those movies were a nice call back to the action movies of the 80s & 90s, for me, where they said “Fuck an excellent story! We’ll settle for a good or an okay story but excellent action scenes!” It’s a movie. As long as I’m entertained, nothing else matters. Like Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, for example. An okay story with awesome action scenes.

                1. I honestly have no bloody clue. I don’t much keep up with behind the scenes politics in Hollywood. At the end of the day, I honestly don’t care what others think of movies. I’m perfectly content with how I feel about a movie or even music. If others don’t like what I like, oh well & I’m perfectly fine with that. After all, it’s that mentality that keeps me happy about the Star Wars prequels & keeps me from getting into arguments with people that hate them. Now I just need to get that mentality down packed with video games because I quite honestly hate fighting with people.

      1. It’s also true, people are out of their minds if they think she is a good fit for samus. Starting to think that every nintendo fan just agrees or is passive with absolutely anything nintendo related “Amy Schumer wants to play peach in a mario movie! Also NOA censored out clevage and the word sex in M rated new IP”

        Nintendo fan: “Yeah that could work, not a big deal , and only pedophile deviant sickos find girls pleasing to look at in videogames in any capacity anyway, GROSS, japan is fucked man”

        1. While I’m one of the people that think Ronda would be perfect to play Samus personality wise, I guess her body type would be an issue. Aside from Rousey, the only other person I could think of that has the body type & can actually play Samus as a bad ass woman is Angelina Jolie. But there are two problems with her. 1. She wants to retire soon so she can be a stay at home mom. 2. She’s a bit old (40) to play Samus at this point & I expect Samus to look no less than 25 & no more than 30 years old. Sorry, Mr. Boss Ass Bitch, as I know you’d love to have her play the role. Hm. I just thought of Scarlett Johansson. She’s got the body type & she’s only 31, 1 year over the 30 year mark but she still looks like she’s in her mid-20s. But she seems pretty busy with her Marvel role right now so that might be an issue. Anyway, I’ve ran out of white women who have the body type without suggesting any porn stars or nude models for the role. lol

      1. On a second thought she’s a terrible decision. Yeah she has the personal. But your figure is just not getting it.

        1. -||She would carry the Varia Suit perfectly with those shoulders||-

      1. Idk. She has blonde hair. Fuck it. Let’s just have the goddess Angelina Jolie do it. Oh I how love her. I would literally fucking melt if she’s samus.

        1. She doesn’t look like samus either, at all. Samus is a hot blonde 20 something year old, or at least visually I don’t know her actual age. This still isn’t a perfect example but probably in the ball park a little more, tara reid (looks wise)? I would also say sara underwood but maybe not busty or tall enough (but her face is pretty dead on)

                1. -||No, she looks like the equivalent of the Samus in Other M, weak and pathetic||-

            1. Sara “Attack of the Show” Underwood as Samus? Hell motherfu– I mean, PERFECT choice, player!

          1. I don’t know, guys. Do we really want women with fake boobs playing Samus Aran? Just throwing that fact of those two women out there.

  7. Samus would be tough to cast. She’s very young and feminine looking, but she’s also tough as hell–someone you take seriously (btw, I think Angelina Jolie is a terrible choice–too old and a narcissist and example of the worst Hollywood has to offer). On the one hand, you have someone like Elisha Cuthbert, who–while having fallen off the radar more or less–has the look, but not the “I can fucking end you” presence. On the other hand, someone like Emily Blunt has proven she can do tough, but she just isn’t what I would imagine Samus looking like. She was great in Edge of Tomorrow (a movie that I think sort of borrowed influenes from Metroid, btw).

    In the end, however, I do think Emily Blunt would be my first choice. In fact, they should get the screenwriter and director from Edge of Tomorrow on board, too. Hell, Tom Cruise could even play Adam, lol. Great fucking movie btw that didn’t get the attention it deserved.

    1. -||No Tom Cruise, I don’t want scientologist corrupting Metroid||-

  8. -||Whoever is Samus it won’t matter, the movie will end by me squashing her to death in the end||-

    1. If they make a Metroid movie, it will most likely be a prequel of Samus’ days in the Galactic Federation. In other words, you won’t be in a Metroid movie for awhile since Metroid Prime 2: Echoes takes place 3rd in the video game franchise’s timeline.

        1. If you can’t even put a stop to Mr Boss Ass Bitch, a lowly human, on this blog, I doubt you could even fix the insides of a pocket watch, much less history itself. lol

          1. -||I don’t want to put a stop to the boy, he amuses me like a pet||-

              1. -||Of course not, you’re the pet, you have no say in any matter, I only give you the illusion of it just like the country of the USA does to their own cattle||-

                1. b**ch please. You wish I was your f**cking pet. As for America, this hypocritical country f***cking disgusts me. This America was build upon a lie. I want to out get out of this hell hole. Censorship due to this bitch looking over my shoulder at the moment.

            1. Me or Quadraxis? If me, my bad. I wasn’t actually trying to insult you with the “lowly” part. lol

        1. Actually, Metroid Prime Trilogy takes place before Metroid 2 because Super Metroid takes place directly after Metroid 2. That & Zebes in SM was the last Space Pirate stronghold because their home world was destroyed in Corruption. The only place where the Prime trilogy can fit is between Metroid 1 & 2 as that’s the only part of the timeline where there is a large enough of a gap between mainline Metroid games.

    1. Considering some of the people here don’t want Ronda playing the role because she doesn’t have the breast or butt for it, I doubt they’d be up for Milla who has even smaller ones.
