Who do YOU think should play Captain Marvel?

Ronda Rousey has been making the rounds this week, stating she'd love to play Carol Danvers in the 2018 Marvel Film.

She's definitely tough enough for the part. Carol Danvers is an Air Force veteran, the youngest security captain in NASA's history, AND an Avenger... she's definitely not a character you'd want to mess with. Strong and brave, when her character was being developed in the 70s the intention was to use her character arc to reflect the womens' movements that were happening politically.
Ronda Rousey is a UFC fighter and she's very popular at the moment, so she'd be a great pick. But is there anyone else you'd like to see play the character?

Natalie Dormer is a fan favorite right now.

She's a regular in Game of Thrones, and her appearances in Elementary and The Hunger Games have revealed her ability to balance emotional vulnerability with strong will in her character work.

Katee Sackhoff is another fan choice.

Best known for her role on Battlestar Galactica, she'd bring the right kind of personality and energy to the role.

Uma Thurman is a little old for the role.

But if you saw her in Kill Bill, you know she could definitely handle a superhero movie. And she's from Boston, just like Carol.

Kathryn Winnick is my pick.

She's been a total badass as Lagertha in Vikings, she's a trained martial artist, and she's still obscure enough to be appealing to Marvel (since they frequently cast relatively unknown actors in roles like these).

2018 really can't arrive soon enough.

I feel like I've been waiting for this movie all my life. I love Carol, I love what she stands for, and I am so excited for Marvel to finally (FINALLY) make a solo movie starring a female superhero. DC will definitely hold me over with Wonder Woman, but it's still a long wait.
Who would you cast as Carol Danvers?

I don't think Rousey should do it because her fight scenes will be really short.

@shannon15 #teamrousey all the way!
@ssantiago0911 that's a really good point! She could definitely wipe the floor with whatever villain they put Carol Danvers up against. I actually totally forgot she was in F7 too!
I would go with Rousey.....she's a fresh face and did an awesome job in furious 7 and to top it all off she's an actually bad ass!

Ronda Rousey Is Finally Beaten!
This was indeed one of the most shocking upsets in sports history. Many experts and fans expected the match to be one-sided but not Holly Holm. She came out aggressively against the reigning UFC bantamweight champion. And Ronda Rousey, who was undefeated up to this point, was finally beaten by Holly Holm. She is now 12-1 as a professional MMA fighter. This is the moment in which Holly Holm becomes the second female bantamweight champion in UFC history. Ronda Rousey's six consecutive run of the champion title was finally over with this KO. After the match was over, Holly Holm said, “I’m trying to take it in, but it’s crazy. Everything that we worked on presented itself in the fight. Every kind of grab that she tried to get.” The match lasted 5 minutes and 59 seconds total. Ronda Rousey's previous three matches lasted 34 seconds, 14 seconds, and 16 seconds. @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @DonnaMelton @InPlainSight @jokes @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @salahabdalla @Moose892 @BrookieyElba @SamuelRodriguez @ValerieAlissaPa @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Jovi @Shippudenguy21 @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @Link4TW @ChriSingularis @sanazsanaz @WilliamBrown @DannyMoses @ClaySharko @Ravenwing92 @FromBlue2U @TravisBeck @LemissaNicole @BossDominata @gatorchick96 @MatthewBoughton @MarcusJiles @BrandonMcNeil @MalikLawary @KyleBerke @manbungo2000 @DerekGumtow @havic @Straightshooter @PhilAnthony @Kirooken @yaakattackk @RodneyYoung @DreJones @JonathanKerns @bnzattoni @TravisManning @GalacticChakra @smothgreen @afxs @johnnolastname @ChristopherKenn @ChasePage @coreywriley91@MikeWolf @MrTenThirty @JasonNilsson @BrunoDutch @SherzTYC @krishntejanand @addri @ChrisStephens @AniBreo Did you guys all watch the match?
