Metroid movie

If there's one Nintendo franchise that has the potential to create a genuinely good movie, it's Metroid; with the space wars, aliens, and a lone, mysterious hero at its core, the series seems like a decent fit for a silver screen adaptation. Of course, we've already heard that the Metal Gear movie director Jordan Vogt-Roberts would like to make a "crazy" movie for the series, but now Brie Larson is getting in on the action, too.

The American actress - known for her work in films such as Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, 21 Jump Street, and Kong: Skull Island - has revealed that she wants to make a Metroid film. Things started after she dressed up as Zero Suit Samus for Halloween, causing fans of the star to bombard her social media channels with admiration and share their dreams of seeing her act out the role on screen.


She confirmed her desire to work on a Metroid film via Twitter:

It's worth noting that, despite apparent interest from actors and directors, the chances of a Metroid movie ever actually happening are pretty slim; with other Nintendo franchises being much larger and better known to the public, we'd imagine that other games would get the nod over Samus' adventures given the opportunity (just like the upcoming Mario movie).
