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.

Rousey had expressed her interest in getting the gig last year during a fan chat on Reddit.
It didn’t take long for “Rowdy’s” fans to get creative as they instantly took to Photoshop to bust out their best images of Rousey portraying the character, which you can check out here.
The fan art caught the attention of Marvel Studios producer Kevin Feige, who didn’t completely rule out Rousey as a potential candidate. Though we don’t actually know if she was ever really in the running or even auditioned for the gig.
In the end, the studio went with Larson, a powerhouse of an actress who won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for leading actress for her portrayal as “Ma” in the award-winning film “Room” in 2015.
“Captain Marvel” is expected to hit theaters on March 8, 2019.
As for Ronda, she still has plenty on her Hollywood plate, as she is currently attached to the “Road House” remake and various other projects. As far as her mixed martial arts (MMA) career goes, that’s still up in the air.
