Brie Larson of Captain Marvel really wants to play Samus in a Metroid movie.
Brie Larson attended Animal Talking talk show, which is presented by Gary Whitta, and the producer Adam Nickerson told that he’s hearing so much ‘Brie-Samus talk’ talk these days and Gary Whitta joined the conversation and said “They all want you to play Samus, Brie. They all want you to be in a Metroid movie.”
Larson stressed that she would really love to play the iconic Nintendo character. And said “So, 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 so 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 and I definitely want to make that movie, I definitely want to participate in that. So, Nintendo, once again, I would love to do it!”
This conversation began when Larson talked about wearing Zero Suit Samus for Halloween in 2018. Before then, a tweet saying if this image was the closest we would get to actually seeing a Metroid movie with her in it, and she replied to this tweet saying that “I hope not. I want to make that movie.”
While there will not be a Metroid movie soon, we will see the Larson as Captain Marvel that is intended to be released in theaters in 2022.
