If you keep abreast of superhero news you’ve probably seen a bunch of articles reporting that Anna Kendrick wants to play Squirrel Girl in a Marvel superhero movie. That’s neat. I’d love to see Squirrel Girl on the big screen and I’ve no doubt Kendrick could knock that role out of the park. There’s only one problem…
She didn’t actually say that.
“My brother sent me a Squirrel Girl comic because he thinks I should [play her],” she told fashion magazine Porter. “I don’t know what Squirrel Girl does other than be half squirrel, but I could be half squirrel!”
Yeah. That’s it.
