After One Piece Live Action, Emily Rudd became a household name, and there is hardly any series or anime lover who does not know her name. Her portrayal of Nami is adored by the One Piece fandom. They could not fathom anyone other than her. Everyone will get to enjoy live-action Nami once again since Netflix has renewed One Piece Live-action for a second season.
Since Emily Rudd has become one of the popular faces of Hollywood, many rumors can be heard about the actress. Considering the role that Emily Rudd took up in One Piece, there are tons of other roles, which she could play. Most of them are female Superheroes from Marvel and DC comics. So, let’s take a look at three Superheroes from either comic, which the Nami actor can easily play.
3. Black Widow
Scarlett Johansson has made the character of Black Widow iconic. She played Black Widow for more than a decade, and people loved her throughout. If anyone can carry on the legacy of Black Widow like Scarlett Johansson, it will be Emily Rudd. Black Widow is a Russian assassin and is trained in hand-to-hand combat and weaponry. Emily Rudd has proven in One Piece that she can master hand-to-hand combat and be as athletic as the Black Widow.
Spider-Gwen, commonly known as Ghost-Spider, is a different variant of Gwen Stacy from another universe where she was bitten by the radioactive spider instead of Peter Parker. She belonged to Earth-65, and has the same qualities as Spider-Man, and has a knack for detective. Emily Rudd will be the perfect person to play this role, considering it will require stealth and a bit of madness. Nami excels in both of these abilities.
X-23, or Laura Kinney, is the daughter of Wolverine. She was made in a lab with Wolverine’s DNA and was used by an evil organization. But later, she was rescued and joined the X-Men. After her father’s death, she picked the name Wolverine and continued her father’s legacy. She is an immense powerful mutant with the same abilities as her father and mastery over several martial arts. It is one of the best Marvel Superheroes that Emily Rudd could play and slay in that role.
Now, we look at 3 DC Superheroes that Emily Rudd can effortlessly play
Batgirl is the female counterpart of Batman. She is a member of Batman’s team and has a utility belt with several gadgets. She is quite good at hand-to-hand combat and can use martial arts. Batgirl has a high intellect and can do detective work. Rudd could easily portray this role and become a member of the Batman family. There is yet to be a movie made of Batgirl, so the Nami actor should be the first name among the choices.
Zatanna is one of the most powerful female superheroes in the DC universe. She is a magician and can use several powerful magic spells. She is a mystic superhero belonging to the homo magi race, just like her father, Zatara. Zatanna is a member of the Justice League Dark and also has leadership qualities. Considering the cat-burgling nature of Nami, she is one of the best choices to play Zatanna.
Mera is the Queen of Atlantis. She is the wife of Arthur Curry/ Aquaman. Amber Heard played the role of Mera, but after a controversy surrounding her, the role of Mera is now vacant. She is one of the strongest female characters in the DC universe. She has superhuman strength and hydrokinetic power, which helps her to create and control water. After Emily Rudd’s global success, she could end up getting the role of Mera.
