Brie Larson has expressed her desire to play the main character Samus Aran in a Metroid Movie.
Brianne Sidonie Desaulniers or better known in the film industry as Brie Larson is an American film actress and filmmaker. She has won prestigious rewards such as the Academy Awards and Golden Globe for her acting in films. She was also named one of the top 100 most influential people by Times magazine.
Metroid was a popular game series back in the ’90s created by Nintendo. The main character for the Metroid series is Samus Aran, a bounty hunter who wears a spacesuit to fight space pirates. The series features 9 games and several spin-offs.
People might know her mostly from her last Role in the Marvel’s Avengers movies where she played the role of Captain Marvel. Other than playing Captain Marvel she also was in commercially successful movies such as Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010), 21 Jump Street (2012), Short Term 12 (2013), Don Jon (2013), The Spectacular Now (2013), Trainwreck (2015), Room (2015), Kong: Skull Island (2017), Captain Marvel (2019), and Avengers: Endgame (2019).
Brie Larson Wants To Play as Samus
Things started to take form when she dressed up as Samus for Halloween. Seeing her in Samus Aran costume one fan pointed out it was the closest thing they would get to a Metroid movie. She replied to the fan by saying she wanted to make one. This was back in 2018.
Recently another fan made a Metroid style cover with Brie Larson as Samus. Brie Larson replied to this post by asking her fans to make it happen.
Brie Larson is clearly interested in the Metroid franchise. She shares a passion for the games similar to one we saw with Henry Cavill and the Witcher series. Henry expressed his love for the Witcher Franchise and his desire to play as Geralt long before the series was even made. And we know that Henry Cavill as Geralt was received with much love by the fans of the Witcher series.
So if Brie Larson can also use her passion to fill the shoes of Samus Aran, there is no doubt the film will be received with positivity by the fans.
