Anna Kendrick would go nuts to play one Marvel hero

07.05.2016

When anyone asks me who my favorite modern Hollywood starlet is one of the names that instantly pops up is Anna Kendrick. She’s funny, genuine, a delight to gaze upon and immeasurably talented. She’s done everything from heavy dramas to animated musicals, with no signs of slowing down. Hell I'd watch her chop carrots for four hours. She doesn't even have to make anything with them.

But one thing she hasn’t done is don a cape or a super suit—which of course is the pinnacle of movie stardom nowadays. However, during an interview with Net A Porter Kendrick didn’t exactly rule out the possibility of playing a superhero. In fact, the hero she most wants to play is, frankly, the reason why I love her.

"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 for those of you not familiar with the Marvel character Squirrel Girl then congratulations, you’re a normal, functioning member of society. But just in case they do make a movie about the heroine, and you wanna act like you’ve known who she was “before she was cool”, here’s her picture.

Even though she is quite possibly the silliest-sounding character in the Marvel universe, she is actually quite the badass. She’s used her powers of super strength and fast healing (among others, like being able to store nuts at an alarming rate, I imagine) to defeat insanely powerful villains like Doctor Doom and Thanos.

So knowing that Thanos is set to play a huge role in future Marvel movies, is it too strange to think that Squirrel Girl would enter the mix? Granted, even though Marvel isn’t as focused on making their universe as realistic and grounded as DC is, I still think Squirrel Girl is a little too far-fetched a character to bring to life. But, so was Ant-Man, I suppose, and Paul Rudd dominated that role like a fat guy dominates cheeseburgers. And if anyone can dominate Squirrel Girl and become half squirrel, it’s Kendrick. Praise be unto her.

There's a bi-monthly subscription box you can sign up for at Marvel called Colectors Corps, this months box was themed 'Women of Power' I was surprised that the main item it came with was a Squirrel Girl Funko Pop. It is awesome, this is a good casting idea, I hope it happens, but am not expecting it.

Only one problem...

She is a mutant and therefor Fox would more than likely own the rights to her. She is a weird character but has beaten, Wolverine, Thanos, and Dr Doom. ALL off panel but she supposedly has. She is a quirky character that could probably be a lot of fun in the way that Deadpool was, just much more tame.

As far as I remember, she never was part of the X-Men, but was part of the Avengers, a few times (including babysitting Jessica Jones and Luke Cage's daughter).
So she might become an Inhuman for the MCU...

Yeah, I could see it....

They could make either a really silly movie (small release) or have her be a minor character in someone else's movie. I don't think even Marvel could sell a Squirrel Girl movie unless it was like Deadpool.

Is being irritating part of the character?

She could play

...Ol' Ratface, the unfunny girl who tries too hard. I'd pay to see that.

This would be perfect casting in my opinion and at this point a character Marvel could easily translate onto the big screen after doing all of the other [link] character before her.

And Kendrick is one of my top three favorite actress' and hotties and would absolutely be over the moon if she were to join the MCU.
