    Sorry, Ronda Rousey, but the role of Carol Danvers, AKA, "Captain Marvel," has gone to none other than Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson.

    Larson was confirmed and introduced as the next actress to join the Marvel family over the weekend during the festivities at San Diego’s Comic Con.

    I can only take this to mean that Rousey turned the role down and Marvel had to go with their second choice.

    She didn't lose it. I'm sure she was never being considered

    Can't lose what you never had. This was only a Ronda fanboys(@PUO3) wet dream and it was never actually real.

    Hard to lose smething she wasn't in the running for. She expressed interest in the role, but there was never any news on this non-story other than that.

    HOw can you lose something you never had?

    She missed out

    Did she even apply, was she even considered.



    Whatever next, Rousey loses role as Terminator in the new Terminator movie?

    To be fair Ronda would not have been anywhere close to what Marvel and Disney were thinking for the role.

  19. Good. A well trained and talented actress got a role over a sports star making the best out of her fame.

    Yeah. Basically she did a Reddit AMA and someone asked her what comic book hero she'd want to be if she ever got to play one, and she said she'd love to vie for Miss Marvel since all the other good ones are taken. We don't actually know if she ever auditioned for it. Not that she would have landed it even if she did, but it was basically just a Reddit comment that got a lot of media attention.
