As the Marvel Cinematic Universe grows, fans are looking to the newer, or more obscure comics that Marvel has released, and getting excited about the possibilities of new properties being developed. Of course, with each new property comes new talent to join the MCU. And these days, with superhero movies being as big as they are, it seems that every celebrity has a character in the back of their mind that they would love to play. The latest movie star to throw their name into the ring for a Marvel superhero is none other than Anna Kendrick, although her pick may come as a bit of a surprise.
During a recent interview with the actress, Kendrick stated that her brother actually suggested that she play Squirrel Girl, a character that is considered rather wacky, but is beloved by many. While Kendrick admits she isn’t entirely familiar with the character and what abilities she has, the actress seems totally down to portray the character if asked.
“My brother sent me a Squirrel Girl comic because he thinks I should [play her],” she said. “I don’t know what Squirrel Girl does other than be half squirrel, but I could be half squirrel!”
Interestingly enough, Kendrick has been fancast in the role of Squirrel Girl many times, so seeing the actress show interest in the character? It’s pretty exciting for fans. Of course, as of right now, there seems to be no plans to bring Squirrel Girl into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, unfortunately. However, if this were to change, would you be up for seeing Kendrick in the role? Sound off in the comments below!
