Brie Larson recently stated that she wants to play Samus Aran in the film adaptaion of the cherished video game, Metroid. Larson is mostly know for her portrayal of Captain Marvel. Samus Aran is a famous intergalactic bounty hunter. After losing both her parents, the mysterious Chozo adopted Samus and infused with their alien DNA.
“I would love that so much,” Larson told viewers on Twitch. “I was Samus for Halloween two years ago. It was literally a $20 costume I bought off of Amazon, it was like nothing. I was so excited about it, and I posted a picture of it on Instagram of me and the costume, and it turned into this thing of people being like “Woah!” She was always my character that I played in Super Smash Bros. and I just loved her. So that whole thing started and I’ve definitely not put a squash to that story. I definitely want to make that movie, I definitely want to participate in that. So, Nintendo, once again, I would love to do it!”
Unfortunately, it is unlikely that we will get a live action Metroid film anytime soon. However Brie Larson will reprise her role as Captain Marvel for the franchise sequel in 2022.
