MMA fighter Ronda Rousey reveals how she intends to take her acting career very seriously to show that she is the perfect actress to play "Captain Marvel."

According to the Entertainment Weekly, the reigning UFC Women's Bantamweight champion is now taking on "progressively bigger roles" since she began venturing Hollywood.

During an interview, the 28-year-old American mixed martial artist revealed to the outlet how she plans on developing her acting prowess by taking on bigger roles, starting with the Mark Wahlberg-starrer "Mile 22."

"I'm really looking forward to doing my first starring role opposite Mark Wahlberg," she stated, revealing her ultimate goal as of the moment.

"Hopefully by the time 'Captain Marvel' comes around, I will have enough experience and skills in the field for them to really seriously consider me," she added.

Rousey's acting career began with supporting roles in the 2014 "The Expendables 3" as well as the 2015 films "Entourage" and the Vin Diesel-starrer "Furious 7."

Aside from "Mile 22," Rousey has been tapped to star in the remake of Nick Cassavetes' "Round House."

"I was pursuing Road House for like two years. I really don't think that any other man could be [Patrick Swayze]. I think that it's a wise angle to take to kind of do a little gender flip of the role," she explained.

According to a previous report from Latino Post, Rousey expressed her wish to play the one of Marvel's highly significant characters via a Reddit AMA two months ago.

When asked what superhero she wants to play should she be chosen to star in a superhero movie, she said: "Well... a lot of the good ones have been taken, but I'd like to vie for Miss Marvel."

After the Reddit AMA, Rousey became the subject of so many fan art showing her as either Miss Marvel or Captain Marvel.

She also received plenty of admiration and love not only for her talents and skills but for her powerful opinion towards having self-worth.

In fact, Beyoncé, the Queen B herself, showed her admiration for the female fighter that she used her words during her concert, a September report from ET revealed.

"Just because my body was developed for a purpose other than f*cking millionaires, doesn't mean it's masculine. I think it's femininely badass as f*ck, because there's not a single muscle on my body that isn't for a purpose, because I'm not a 'do nothing bitch," Rousey declared in an NSFW rant.
