Ronda Rousey would love to star as Captain Marvel.

The mixed martial artist-turned-actress has revealed she dreams of starring in her own movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe - and has identified Captain Marvel as her character of choice.

Asked during a Reddit Q&A which superhero she'd most like to play, the 28-year-old star replied: "A lot of the good ones have been taken, but I'd like to vie for Miss Marvel."

This comes shortly after it was reported Ronda could be set to star in a biopic about her life.

The 'Furious 7' actress is the author of the best-selling autobiography 'My Fight/Your Fight' and Paramount Pictures has secured the rights to the book, with rumours suggesting Rousey will play the lead part.

Executive producer Mary Parent said: "It's a real honour to be a part of bringing Ronda's incredible story to the big screen."

Ronda recently recorded a dramatic win over her UFC rival Bethe Correia in Brazil and prior to her victory, she explained how her burgeoning movie career would work around her UFC commitments.

She said: "Here's pretty much the plan.

"I'm going to beat up Bethe, then I'm going to take a couple of weeks to rest, and then I'm going to go beat up Miesha [Tate], and then I'm going to go to like Thailand or wherever we decide to film ('Mile 22') and prep for like a month, and then start filming for like eight to 10 weeks, and then go beat up the next chick.

"That's pretty much my plan."
