We already know that Ronda Rousey has been lobbying to land her dream role of playing Captain Marvel. Angie Han over at Slashfilm.com reported earlier that Ronda had been campaigning, by “using the power of fan art and social media” to state her case with Warner Bros. Well I’ve decided to use the power of my art to state the case that there are so many obvious and better choices for the role of Captain Marvel, and maybe a few not so obvious options this fan boy/man could only ever hope for. All my choices are of women who have one way or another showed amazing strength and literally kicked ass on screen. I created a nice back drop, fashioned a Captain Marvel costume, and made phone calls to all the lucky candidates to have them come over for a photo sh0ot. You know, to see how they looked. Decided to move forward with my Photoshop Mash Up, since no one returned my calls (insert sad face emoji here). Welcome to my “I Am Captain Marvel” series.
Katheryn Winnick. She plays the strong shield-maiden Lagertha on History Channel’s “Vikings”. Fights along her husband and brothers. She is a force. A perfect candidate to fight along side her superhero brothers and sisters in the Marvel Universe.
Ok so you’ve got some obvious choices and fan favorites. These next few are my guilty pleasure choices.
Lauren Cohan. You’ve seen this Jersey Girl* fight alongside Glenn dispatching hordes of walkers, so you know she can get the job done as Captain Marvel.* Lauren was born in Cherry Hill NJ before moving to Surrey England at the age of 13. That explains the Jersey accent.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed viewing my “I Am Captain Marvel” series, as much as I enjoyed making it for you. Until next time.
