Nuttin' But Trouble: Anna Kendrick wants to be Squirrel Girl?

In an interview with Net-a-Porter Anna Kendrick was recently quoted expressing interest in playing Marvel's Squirrel Girl after her brother sent her a comic, 

"My brother sent me a Squirrel Girl comic because he thinks I should [play her]. I don't know what Squirrel Girl does other then be half squirrel, but I could be half squirrel!"
Squirrel Girl, aka Doreen Green, first appeared in Marvel Super Heros vol 2 back in 1992. Like the name implies she has a prehensile tale, razor sharp claws, the ability to communicate with squirrels as well as superhuman agility, senses and strength. She's a great heroine, defeated many a supervillan including Doctor Doom and even rescued Iron Man, all with the help of her super cute squirrel sidekick named Monkey Joe.

No word yet on whether or not Squirrel Girl will ever get her moment on the big screen but she's a force to be reckoned with and Kendrick just might be a perfect choice: even if she does say so herself.
