This past Friday saw the release of the Elizabeth Banks-written and directed Charlie’s Angels movie, which means this Friday also saw the debut of Ronda Rousey herself as an Angel.
Soft spoiler alert, I guess. (Ronda was even shown in one of the promo trailers for the movie.) It’s not truly a spoiler, in the sense that Elizabeth Banks has made very clear that this particular iteration of Charlie’s Angels—which is, in fact, a continuation of the original ’70s television series and the two classic McG films from the 2000s, but unfortunately not of the 2011 television reboot—exists in a time where The Townsend Agency has expanded globally. Meaning that there are more than just the three central Angels we’re accustomed to—who, in this case, are played Kristen Stewart,* Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska—and that Ronda Rousey does, in fact, count as one of Charlie’s Angels
How cool is that?
Well, watch the behind-the-scenes video below to experience just how cool that is with Ronda (and her little sister/videographer Julia) and see for yourself.
*Kristen Stewart is a comedic revelation in the movie. I know that doesn’t really have anything to do with Ronda, but it’s something that should be acknowledged and discussed, in general, moving forward. Charlie would want that.
