“Samus Aran” is an intergalactic Bounty Hunter and the main character of the “Metroid” game series. Her first appearance was in the original Metroid, released in 1986. Her birth planet is K-2L, an earth colony. She often employed by the Galactic Federation.
Samus’s history is somewhat mysterious and is often left with wide gaps. Her past is best described in the Metroid Manga, although Nintendo never directly confirmed whether the manga is canon or non-canon; some images from the Manga appear in the Japanese Metroid: Zero Mission Gallery. Other than the Metroid Manga, primary sources for her history are Metroid Fusion and Metroid: Other M.
John Woo’s Tiger Hill Entertainment spent developing a sci-fi movie based on the Metroid video game series producer Brad Foxhoven explained that they need to update the character designs and significantly expand the backstory in ways that made Nintendo uneasy.
“We knew that a lot of the Metroid mythology had many similarities to other well-known science fiction franchises, so we had to try and propose some fresh ideas that Nintendo would approve,” explains Foxhoven. “We also knew that the characters were originally developed many years ago, when game systems were limited in their graphics and animation. These same designs needed to be updated, particularly when seen as a live-action representation.”
Internet rumors are great insights into what might happen, could happen, shouldn’t happen, we want to happen… And when it’s about a franchise as beloved as Metroid, you’re sure to get a reaction. Especially when you mention that nerd-love goddess “Samus Aran” becoming live-action movie. Here’s the list of 10 actresses who could and should play “The Hottest Video Game Character” Samus Aran in the upcoming Metroid movie:
10. Olivia Wilde
Olivia Wilde is a good actress and she could also play Samus Anar. Her roles in “Tron: Legacy (2010) ” and “Cowboys And Aliens (2011) ” shows that she has the physical attributes that would be a choice to be in Metroid movie.
9. Eva Mendes
Eva Mendes is another perfect actress to play sexy Samus Aran. She’s beautiful, she’s got all humps and bumps, and she has the physique for the role. She’s defiantly has the looks as well of Samus Aran.
8. Rachel Nichols
Rachel Nichols is another beautiful brunette actress and would be a choice to Samus Aran in a Metroid movie. Her latest role in “G I Joe” showed that her looks can fit the part for Samus Aran.
7. Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba is defiantly another actress who could be casted as Samus Aran in a Metroid movie. She has amazing beauty and physique and has the look of sexy Samus Aran. Some consider her not as good of an actress but I love her acting at times, especially in “Dark Angel” where she proves that she could perform well if she was Samus Aran in Metroid.
6. January Jones
January Jones would be another choice to play Samus Aran. She is known to be tough in “X‑Men: First Class” as Emma Frost and could use that for Metroid movie. She’s beautiful and she has blonde hair color. She has the body as well for the role and I think she could be perfect for the role.
5. Anne Hathaway
Anne Hathaway another great actress who could play Samus Aran. She was maybe the best actress of 2012, with performances as Selina Kyle/Catwoman from “The Dark Knight Rises” and as her Oscar winning character, Fantine from “Les Misérables”. It shows her versatility and she could be Samus Aran. Her performance as Catwoman in “The Dark Knight Rises” was amazing. Anne Hathaway showed that she was acrobatic as she performed her own stunts in the film. She could be one of the choices to be in Metroid movie.
4. Kate Beckinsale
Kate Beckinsale would be another candidate for playing Samus Aran. She’s English, brunette hair colored and she’s beautiful. Her role as Selene in the Underworld movies proves that Kate Beckinsale is capable of pulling off the acrobatics and the martial arts for Metroid movie.
3. Scarlett Johansson
Scarlett Johansson is a beautiful actress and has what it takes to be Samus Aran. Her beauty, her sexy body and her great acting skills shows that she’s defiantly perfect for the role. Scarlett Johansson is known to do her own stunts in most films and her as Black Widow in The Avengers series, she proves she capable of being casted in Metroid movie.
2. Jennifer Lawrence
My number one choice to be casted in a Metroid movie is Jennifer Lawrence. She’s defiantly a talented actress and an upcoming star and an Oscar winner. Her character as Katniss from the movie “The Hunger Games” defiantly shows that she is capable of being in Metroid.
1. Charlize Theron
Charlize Theron being a South African and American actress would be another choice to be Samus Aran. Her acting in The Pirates of “Hancock” and “Aeonflux” proves she is more than capable of being in Metroid movie. She really has a smoking body with long legs and stunning curves. If you ask me Charlize Theron will be a perfect choice in portraying Samus Aran role in Metroid movie.
