We have been hearing for quite some time now, that there are plans to make a new Tomb Raider reboot movie, which will supposedly focus on the origins of the character, looking at her early years and the beginning of her adventures. However, these rumours have been going for a few years now and there has not really been any real progress to speak of.
With that said, the fans have still been very keen to voice their opinions on which actress should play the role of Lara Croft in the new Tomb Raider reboot, with names like Daisy Ridley and Cara Delevingne being thrown about. However, it has now been confirmed that the actress who will take on the role of Lara Croft in Tomb Raider, is Alicia Vikander, which has not sat too well with many fans.
One disgruntled fan moaned, "How on Earth can they cast someone like Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft? Lara is a curvy character with big boobs and a round ass, both of which Alicia is lacking. I already smell disaster." Meanwhile, another added, "WOW! I though Daisy Ridley was going to be a bad choice but this is even worse. Another skinny white girl being miscast."
While we have to agree that Alicia Vikander does not exactly have the body to play the role of Lara Croft in the new Tomb Raider movie, there is no denying that she is a very talented actress who could no doubt pull it off, after all, most people criticised Gal Gadot for the same thing as Wonder Woman, and she was the best thing about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so let's give Alicia the benefit of the doubt.
