Ok, so we’ve been posting a lot of fun rumours about actress Anna Kendrick and Stranger Things’ star Shannon Purser, who played Barb, wanting to play Marvel’s Squirrel Girl but now it looks like it may actually be a thing!
Well, we didn’t see that coming.
Rumours are that Marvel and ABC Studios are looking at making a new comedy Marvel cinematic Universe series called New Warriors and it will likely be fronted by – admit it, you see it coming at this point – Squirrel Girl!
“Both Marvel and ABC Studios declined to comment, but sources confirm that the half-hour project is currently being shopped around to cable and streaming outlets.
“Described as the junior version of The Avengers, the New Warriors are a superhero squad made up of teenagers, one of whom would include Doreen Green (aka Squirrel Girl). For the record, SG can do more than just communicate with the world’s vast squirrel population; she also possesses super-speed and strength.”
Well, it could certainly be something fresh from Marvel and we’re starting the official campaign now #BarbForSquirrelGirl
What say you all? Would you watch it?
