You probably all remember Ronda Rousey hollering from every available rooftop that she wanted to play Captain Marvel, but now a new badass female has caught the former bantam weight champ's beady little eye.

In an interview with Gamespot the 29-year-old noted game lover said she would love the opportunity to wriggle into Samus's suit, she told interviewers:

"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."

For those of you unfamiliar with Metroid, the hero and ultimate badass of the game remains encased in a suit and it is only revealed the protagonist is in fact female when she removes her helmet on completion.

With her seriously athletic physique, Rousey would definitely be capable of conveying the power of 6'3" Samus and she isn't a bad fit facially either:
