Marvel trademarks Squirrel Girl; is she joining the Cinematic Universe?

Aug. 1, 2014by: Graham McMorrow

If you have your ear to the ground when it comes to all things Marvel, you may have heard something around the water cooler today about Squirrel Girl (real name: Doreen Green). Earlier this month Marvel filed a trademark for Squirrel Girl; Marvel usually registers trademarks to protect TV and film rights down the road. So obviously people are getting excited and suggesting this is some tell-tale sign of a future project with Squirrel Girl. That and people are into talking raccoons and trees right now so it makes sense right?

She was created by Spider-Man co-creator, Steve Ditko and writer Will Murray and has since become something of a fan favorite for her ability to communicate with squirrels. So what’s happening with all of this? Well, with closer inspection on the official patent, we can see that it’s specific to printed mediums:

Paper and paper articles; cardboard and cardboard articles; printed matter; publications; books; photographs; portraits; paintings; stationery; office and school supplies; temporary tattoos; foam stamps; party bags; shopping bags

There's no mention of television or film; so it actually might be easier to suggest she’s going to be popping up in comic form rather than a digital medium. She’s been absent for a few years now, but has ties to The Avengers, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones. Cage and Jones are getting their own Netflix shows, so perhaps she could appear there as their nanny which she’s done for them before in the comics, what a nice girl. It should also be noted that Squirrel Girl is going to be in two episodes of Disney XD’s Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon this fall. So this weekend, if your friends tell you they're making a Squirrel Girl movie, you call tell them how patents and trademarks work; they will life you on their shoulders.

Would you want Squirrel Girl Showing up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

I mean I know there really aren't any female characters worth their salt in comics sans sex appeal but this is just embarrassing.

We might have a Squirrel Girl movie before DC gets their shit together and makes Wonder Woman. Imagine that.

Wonder Woman is allegedly getting a solo movie in 2017, so Marvel could fast track Squirrel Girl and get it out first haha. But in all honesty, Marvel Studios makes Marvel movies. That's it. They're owned by Disney but they're a seperate divison, like Touchtone Pictures. WB makes many kinds of movies, including DC movies. WB could make a separate DC division, like they have with New Line Cinemas, but until they do that there will always be less DC movies. It has nothing to do with "DC getting

So is this a character you just dresses up like squirrel, similar to a Batman type. Or does she have the powers of a squirrel, similar to a spider-man type hero? And if so, what are the squirrel "powers"? The ability to climb trees and find nuts?

Hehehe...
As far as I remember, she can communicate with squirrel, has superhuman agility and strength, and is a very good hand-to-hand combatant (she defeated Wolverine).

also, she has defeated dr. doom, deadpool, modok, terrax, and thanos, etc. so she's not just your typical super heroine.

Keeping my fingers crossed that Squirrel Girl will be the first female-lead movie from Marvel Studios.
