Ronda Rousey has no love for Batman vs. Superman casting: I should have been Wonder Woman!

Gal Gadot? Pfffft. Make room for "Rowdy."

Now that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey is a bona fide action star, soon to be seen in Expendables 3, among other Hollywood flicks, the "Rowdy" 135-pound titleholder wants to be the highest-grossing actor in the world.

And what better way than by playing Wonder Woman in the new Batman vs. Superman movie?

"They're making a Wonder Woman right now, aren't they?" Rousey asked Tommy Toehold. "I should have been Wonder Woman, man! That girl couldn't curl a two-pound weight, what's so wonderful about that? I don't understand."

Princess Diana, as it stands, will be played by Gal Gadot.

But Rousey will still get to kick some major butt on the silver screen, as the undefeated judoka will also get her own franchise in The Athena Project, which could lead to future big-screen parts. In other words, enjoy her while you can, mixed martial arts (MMA) fans, as we may not be able to hold on to her much longer.

That said, do you think she would make a good Wonder Woman?
