So, who could play Squirrel Girl in a movie? Doreen Green isn't too high on the list of most popular Marvel characters, but she's guaranteed to show up in a Marvel Studios movie sooner or later. The company took big gambles on a couple of obscure properties with Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man. Is it so hard to believe Squirrel Girl could be playing at a theater near you someday? The folks at Marvel sure seem to know what they're doing, so give them the benefit of the doubt and help out by casting Squirrel Girl!
In case you're out of the loop on this one, Squirrel Girl started out as a joke character in the comics but has garnered a pretty big cult following over the years. She has a bushy tail, some enhanced agility, and she can talk to and command armies of squirrels. With these skills, she's defeated some of the biggest villains (and heroes) in comics.
Anyway, an actress playing Squirrel Girl has to be able to play a plucky sense of humor. Short hair and buck teeth don't hurt either. And since it is Marvel, she better be a damn good actress too. Let's hop to fantasy casting for Marvel's Squirrel Girl!
