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?

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….
