    People Really Want Anna Kendrick To Play The Marvel Superhero "Squirrel Girl"

    "I could be half squirrel!"

    In a recent interview with Net A Porter Anna Kendrick was asked if she had any interest in donning spandex for a superhero movie.

    And her response? Squirrel Girl!

    “My brother sent me a Squirrel Girl comic because he thinks I should [play her]. I
    don’t know what Squirrel Girl does other than be half squirrel
    , but I could be half squirrel!”

    In actual fact, Squirrel Girl (aka Doreen Green) has a ton of powers which have assisted her in taking down massive villains in the past like Dr. Doom, Galactus, and Thanos.

    Possessing super strength, speed, and reflexes, Squirrel Girl isn't just "half squirrel" but rather a mutate. She also has a retractable knuckle spike, can heal at accelerated speeds, and has a three-foot long prehensile tail that she tucks into her pants when hiding her true identity (which she calls her "conspicuously awesome butt"). And yeah, she can communicate with squirrels, and has little snack pouches for nuts that she calls her nut sacks!!!

    But Anna's brother isn't the only person who thinks she should play the bushy-tailed hero. After hearing the news, the internet was ALL FOR IT.

    I don't even know who Squirrel Girl is but based only on her name, yes, it should be @AnnaKendrick47.

    Even hoping for her to reunite with The Voices co-star Ryan Reynolds.

    America needs a DEADPOOL VS. SQUIRREL GIRL movie, @VancityReynolds @AnnaKendrick47. We need it.
