The one thing Nintendo fans have learned in 2020 above all else is that Brie Larson is a diehard Nintendo fan. She's been one for decades now, and continues to show her appreciation for the brand to this day.
Larson, seen above dressed as Zero Suit Samus for Halloween, has talked about her fondness for the Metroid series in the past. She not only loves the universe, but would like to have a crack at playing Samus in a Metroid movie adaptation. This isn't the first time Larson has expressed this desire, but in an interview with Gary Whitta on Animal Talking, she doubled down on the request.
"I would love that so much. I was Samus for Halloween two years ago. It was literally a $20 costume I bought off of Amazon, it was like nothing. I was so excited about it, and I posted a picture of it on Instagram of me and the costume, and it turned into this thing of people being like “Woah!” She was always my character that I played in Super Smash Bros. and I just loved her. So that whole thing started and I’ve definitely not put a squash to that story. I definitely want to make that movie, I definitely want to participate in that. So, Nintendo, once again, I would love to do it!"
I definitely think Larson would make for a great Samus. She has the look, and she's already very familiar with the franchise. What more could you ask for?
