So far Marvel Television has kept their small screen endeavors limited to shows like Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter on ABC and the round-up of street-level superhero shows that are leading up to an assembly of The Defenders on Netflix (which we just learned will be debuting this August). But Marvel’s new Cloak and Dagger series is heading to Freeform, and another Marvel series won’t be far behind on the same channel.
New Warriors is a Marvel Comics series that follows a group of young superheroes who are like the junior varsity version of The Avengers, not unlike what the New Mutants are to the X-Men. However, the TV series, which we first heard about last year, will star a character who has only ever been in the cartoon version of the team in The Ultimate Spider-Man animated series (seen above), and that’s Squirrel Girl.

Despite the passionate interest of fans, filmmakers, and movie star alike, Marvel Studios has yet to announce a Squirrel Girl movie and probably never will. But Doreen Green’s never been one to give up easily, and now she may have found a different way to slip into the MCU.

Officially, Marvel Studios has made no indication that they intend to bring Squirrel Girl to the big screen. But that’s not stopping fans from fantasizing about who should play the unbeatable rodent superhero. Over the past year or so, Anna Kendrick has emerged as a popular fantasy-cast pick, with Kendrick herself expressing interest in the role. Recently, Kendrick’s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World director Edgar Wright chimed in with his support.
Now Kendrick also has the endorsement of two high-profile figures actually involved with the MCU. Avengers: Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo have spoken up to say Kendrick as Squirrel Girl would be “perfect casting.” That doesn’t mean a Squirrel Girl movie will ever actually happen, mind you, let alone that Kendrick will star. But hey, we can dream. Read More »
