Anna Kendrick wants to play Squirrel Girl.

Yes, there is too a Squirrel Girl.

Marvel hasn’t announced its making a Squirrel Girl movie but, if they do, Kendrick is ready.

“My brother sent me a Squirrel Girl comic because he thinks I should (play her), the “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” actress told Net-A-Porter. “I don’t know what Squirrel Girl does other than be half squirrel, but I could be half squirrel.”

Squirrel Girl does exist in the comic book world, created in the early ’90s by Steve Ditko and Will Murray in the early 1990s. As one might expect, she’s agile, has claws, a tail, and can talk to animals, according to Yahoo Movies.

Marvel hasn’t announced plans to make a Squirrel Girl movie. But they may now.
