Gina Rodriguez is best known for her portrayal of Jane Villanueva in the hit CW show "Jane the Virgin." Despite the actress' stellar performance in the series, Rodriguez recently talked to E! News to discuss what role she wants to portray next -- and it's vastly different from her "Jane the Virgin" character.

"I would love to be a superhero-that's all I want to do is play a superhero," the 30-year-old star told E! News. "And let's be real, I could kick some ass. We all know I could kick some ass."

Should Marvel Studios play with this idea of Rodriguez as a badass female superhero? The news outlet reported that the production company announced last October that a Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers motion picture is in the works, though the names of the official cast members are yet to be announced.

The top five fan favorites for the lead role are Annasophia Robb, "Vampire Diaries" star Candice Accola, Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Dormer, and Amber Heard, E! News noted.

Rodriguez also admitted that more work have come her way ever since winning a Golden Globe award in the Best Actress in a Comedy Series category.

"The opportunities become more abundant. People have been so wonderful," she told E! News. "The opportunities for 'Jane the Virgin' have become more abundant. We're now in 32 different markets in over 28 countries. People are picking up on the show who didn't know about it before. It's very exciting."

"Jane the Virgin," which has been renewed for a second season, attributes its success to the unfailing energy which keeps fans of the show coming back for more. Series creator Jennie Snyder Urman said that the "secret recipe" of the show is that it follows the elements of popular telenovelas, such as "outlandish plot twists" (Jane being pregnant despite not having sex) and "exaggerated performances," Trib Live wrote.

However, Urman admitted that, as of this moment, she still doesn't know how far she can push those formulas.

"I haven't found that line yet," said Urman, a self-confessed "Scandal" fan, as quoted by Trib Live. "You want to be able to do everything that you want to do and take crazy swings. But you have to be able to find it within the character and within what they want. And it has to make sense within their story.

She added, "I think we can go for a lot of things as long as we can make it make some sense in our room and with our characters and it comes out of motivation."
