Ronda Rousey As "Captain Marvel" ?

Take another look @ undefeated mixed martial arts fighter, Ronda Rousey, UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion and film actress, lobbying to play 'Ms. Marvel' in the upcoming Marvel Studios comic book feature "Captain Marvel":

"I love it," said Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige about Rousey's interest in the part. "That happens occasionally, and I think that's a testament more to the strength of the characters. Going back to my early days at Marvel, there were always various people campaigning to be Wolverine...It's a testament to how great the characters are that it appeals to such a wide range of talented, talented people."

"...'Carol Danvers' appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics, was created by writer Roy Thomas and illustrator Gene Colan. 'Major Carol Danvers' first appeared as a member of the US Air Force in 'Marvel Super-Heroes' #13 (March 1968) and debuted as the first incarnation of 'Ms. Marvel' in 'Ms. Marvel' #1 (January 1977)...

"...after a fusion of alien 'Kree' and human genes gives her superhuman powers, Carol eventually assumes the name of 'Captain Marvel'..."

Marvel Studios "Captain Marvel" is scheduled for release in 2018.
