Marvel has brought us amazing characters to the silver screen such as Captain America, Thor, Ironman and the Hulk. Fans have been excited to see their favorite comic book heroes and heroines come to life but there are plenty more characters in the Marvel Comics line up! One of those characters is the quirky Squirrel Girl, Doreen Green. She is one of the sillier characters to have her own series but has a strong cult following. She was even included in the recent Marvel Collector Corps Women of Power box, as the featured Funko Pop Figure.
Actress Anna Kendrick was recently asked what super hero she would love to play and her response was the lovable Squirrel Girl. “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!”
Marvel trademarked the character in 2014 and speculation quickly started on when she would make her entrance into the Marvel Cinematic Universe or in a television show as she has ties to characters that have already been introduced. Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn even has expressed interest in a Squirrel Girl project.
Only time will tell if we’ll see her bushy squirrel tail in an upcoming movie or series.
