After nabbing a People’s Choice Award and Golden Globe for her role as Jane in “Jane the Virgin,” Gina Rodriguez is ready for a new stage in her life —movies.

But not just any movie, the actress of Puerto Rican descent has her eyes set on one specific role.

“I would love to be a superhero,” she expressed to E! Online. “That’s all I want to do, is play a superhero.” “And let’s be real, I could kick some a**. We all know I could kick some a**.”

Needless to say, Gina is already considered a great role model and I dare even say, a “superhero” for aspiring young Latinos –but you do you, boo, you do you.

Marvel should watch out because Rodriguez revealed she can kick some serious butt.

In October, the company unveiled the big news that their female superhero Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers is expected to get her own action flick in 2018.

Though casting is yet to be announced, we believe that some of our favorite Latina stars are the best candidates.

Perhaps the fit Michelle Rodriguez, the fierce Jennifer Lopez, the expert Zoe Saldana, the aspiring Gina Rodriguez and why not even, Cameron Diaz? (Who has a lot of experience as a “Charlie’s Angel”).

Whether Gina accomplishes her goal of nabbing a superhero role or not, she did mention that after her big win at the 2015 Golden Globes, many doors have opened.

“The opportunities become more abundant. People have been so wonderful,” she said to E! “The opportunities for Jane the Virgin have become more abundant. We’re now in 32 different markets in over 28 countries. People are picking up on the show who didn’t know about it before. It’s very exciting.”
