Who will play Squirrel Girl?
BY LUCY O’BRIEN Marvel and ABC Studios are developing a TV series around the New Warriors, focused heavily on fan-favourite Squirrel Girl.
TV Line reports that the comedy series is currently “being shopped around to cable and streaming outlets”, according to its sources. The New Warriors are described as being like a teenage Avengers, and one of those teenagers is Doreen Green, aka Squirrel Girl, a mutant whose physical makeup is similar to that of a squirrel.
The character has been the focus of some attention recently thanks to a Tweet from Edgar Wright endorsing actress Anna Kendrick for the (then hypothetical) role.
The series will join a plethora of Marvel TV projects, which include Marvel’s The Defenders, Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger, and Marvel’s Runaways.
