Anna Kendrick is ready to take on a superhero role and knows which character would be perfect for her. During a recent interview with Net A Porter, the “Trolls” actress revealed that she would like to take on the role of Squirrel Girl.

“My brother sent me a Squirrel Girl comic because he thinks I should [play her],” she said. “I don’t know what Squirrel Girl does other than be half squirrel, but I could be half squirrel!”

For those unfamiliar with the human mutant, Squirrel Girl is known as Doreen Green and made her first appearance in “Marvel Super-Heroes” volume 2, #8 in 1992. She has superhuman agility, senses and strength, a prehensile tail, razor-sharp claws, retractable knuckle spikes and the ability to communicate with squirrels, which has helped her defeat major villains such as Dr. Doom and Thanos.

We could definitely see her kicking ass and bringing the superhero to life!
