Ok first off – I didn’t even know Squirrel Girl was a real superhero but she is and it’s awesome. For those unfamiliar like myself, here’s some Wikipedia description for you:
is a fictional superheroine appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Her first appearance was in Marvel Super-Heroes vol. 2, #8, a.k.a. Marvel Super-Heroes Winter Special (cover-dated Jan. 1992), in a story plotted and drawn by Steve Ditko and scripted by character conceptualizer Will Murray. Her ability to communicate with squirrels is surprisingly effective and has allowed her to defeat major supervillains. She joined the Great Lakes Avengers, and later began serving as nanny to Danielle Cage, the daughter of Luke Cage and Jessica Jones.
Doreen Green, a.k.a. Squirrel Girl, is originally from the Los Angeles, California, area. She is first seen ambushing Iron Man in a forest, hoping to impress the veteran hero and become his sidekick. The 14-year-old introduces herself and her pet squirrel, Monkey Joe, and displays her abilities (all squirrel-themed). After she rescues Iron Man from Doctor Doom with the help of a horde of squirrels, Iron Man states that while she is too young to fight crime, he will put in a good word for her to the Avengers when she is older.
We know that the Marvel movie franchise is a BEAST right now, making money hand over fist and dishing out some of the best movies ever, so why not expand into the world of Squirrel Girl? Anna Kendrick is 100% down to take that role on. She says, “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!”
Now, thanks to the wonders of inernetting, we have a fan-made mock poster for the movie. Let’s make this happen.
