OK, so if Marvel ever decide to make a Squirrel Girl movie, they’ll have a few actresses – including Anna Kendrick (here) – queuing for the gig, it seems.

With everyone talking about Netflix’s new show Stranger Things – if you haven’t watched it you must, right now – young actress Shannon Purser who plays Barbara Holland in the hit show, has put her name in the Squrrelly hat on Twitter.

The Actress tweeted:

Interestingly, Marvel Comics’ Editor Jake Thomas replied:

So you never know, something may happen…

A Squirrel Girl TV series, perhaps? Anyway, we loved Purser in Stranger Things and hope to see her hit the big time soon.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
