Today In Pro Wrestler Superhero Movie Casting: Charlotte Flair as Female Thor

Posted by December 2, 2016 Comment

Earlier this week, we talked to Cody Rhodes, the former WWE star who makes his debut tonight (in about 45 minutes!!!) at Ring of Honor Final Battle. Rhodes told us that he’s “actively pursuing” a part in the upcoming ABC Inhumans TV show. Wrestlers vying for superhero roles is nothing new, and neither is wrestling fans requesting their favorite wrestler play their favorite superhero. It’s a good fit – both tend to be larger than life, superior physical specimens, and the kind of Shakespearean drama played out in the squared circle isn’t at all unlike what happens inside a comic book.

The latest pro wrestler to throw her hat into the ring for casting in a superhero flick is Charlotte Flair, the former WWE Women’s Champion and daughter of wrestling legend Ric Flair. When asked who she might be interested in playing, Flair responded:

That’s actually pretty much a perfect choice. We didn’t realize we wanted this before, but now we have to have it.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
