Move over Ant Man because Squirrel Girl is ready to play.

That's right, people, Anna Kendrick is totally down to transform into a superhero. The Pitch Perfect actress recently revealed that she wants to join Marvel's ever-growing pack of superheroes, but her choice role is pretty unconventional.

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

So who the heck is Squirrel Girl? Well, the bushy-tailed superhero is known for her enhanced speed, strength, and reflexes, and she's even defeated villains like Dr. Doom and Thanos. Yeah, those Marvel baddies better watch their backs because this uber-cute mutant means business.

But that's not all! Squirrel Girl can also heal at an accelerated speed, and she has retractable knuckle spikes that come in handy when she's busy kicking ass. Of course, she's also a pro at communicating with squirrels, and she likes to snack on nuts.

Turns out that Kendrick's brother isn't the only one who thinks she should play Squirrel Girl. The Internet legit went bonkers after hearing the news and fans started begging Marvel to let Kendrick play the role. Check out the most enthusiastic fan reactions below.
