2022 sees the iconic 80s Beat ‘Em Up, Street Fighter, turn 35 years old. And while revisiting the franchise’s rich history (and remembering everyone’s favorite film to love ironically!), we had one simple question – who would star in a Street Fighter film if it was cast today?
We surveyed 4,000 US adults to find out exactly that.
First, we asked them which characters should be featured in the film, weirdly with an almost exact match to the questionable 1994 movie, and originally from the second game of the franchise. Then participants were asked what actors they believe are a good fit, with a list of suggestions and the opportunity to give their own.
It looks like No Time To Die’s Rami Malek has proven his worth as a fantastic villain and has been voted as the top choice to play the part of M. Bison.
It might surprise some, but Zac Efron is named the favorite as a great fit for Ken, and honestly, we’re here for it.
Cammy gets catapulted into current times, with MCU royalty Brie Larson voted as the best person to play the clone, with arguably Hollywood’s most handsome Chris (Evans!) portraying the beauty-obsessed, mask-wearing perfectionist, Vega.
