Fans beg Marvel to cast Anna Kendrick as Squirrel Girl


Calls for Anna Kendrick to play Marvel's Squirrel Girl are gathering pace, after she hinted that she would be open to it.

The actress was asked by Net-A-Porter which superhero she would like to portray on the big screen and said she liked the idea of playing the powerful rodent girl, who has previously beaten big baddies like Galactus and Thanos.

"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!" she said.

While there isn't a movie about the furry one in the pipeline, fans on Twitter are now DESPERATE to make it happen.
