Anna Kendrick says she wants to play Squirrel Girl in superhero movie

The ‘Pitch Perfect’ star is down to take on the role of the rodent hero

Anna Kendrick has expressed an interest in taking on the role of one of Marvel’s lesser known superheroes – Squirrel Girl.

The Pitch Perfect actresses revealed that if she had to choose a hero to play in a film it would be the crime fighting rodent heroine.

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

For those unfamiliar with Squirrel Girl, the heroine has taken down major supervillains like Dr. Doom and Thanos. She possesses superhuman strength, senses, razor-sharp claws and, naturally, the ability to communicate with squirrels.

The idea seems to have gone down well on Twitter, with many expressing their support for the film. One user even went as far as to knock up a possible poster.

Marvel has no plans for Squirrel Girl film, although they might be willing to reconsider now.
