Ronda Rousey Explains Why Super-heroines Are the Weakest Link

Posted: August 18, 2014 in Movies


Ronda Rousey, the UCF Fighter currently starring in the Expendables 3, has been thinking long and hard about the state of super-heroines in the comic world.  Rousey was a lot of fan-boys’ favorite for the role of Wonder Woman.  Rousey has gone on the record noting that she would be a better choice for Wonder Woman than Gal Gadot, the Israeli actress chosen to portray the Amazonian princess in the currently shooting Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Rousey’s explanation for why super-heroines are the comic universe’s weakest link, might create some debate.  In an interview with USA TODAY, she notes:

“I’m tired of watching this thing where the woman’s superpower is dumbed down. In The Fantastic Four, the woman is the invisible one. In X-Men, (telekinetic) Jean Grey gets tired all the time. Wonder Woman is cool, but she has bulletproof bracelets, while Superman is a bulletproof dude. It’s like she has really cool accessories. I think about that a lot.”

    To be honest I would pick her over Gal Gadot, but that’s like a last minute resort choice, there still tons of actresses that u believe would have done a better job. We just have to wait and hope and see what Gal Gadot has to offer. Personally I wanted Michelle Monahan or Gemma Arterton
