Marvel TV Developing New Warriors Series And Will Feature Squirrel Girl

3 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

TVLine.com reports that Marvel Television and ABC Studios are developing a new comedy series based on the New Warriors. The New Warriors are comprised of the teenage superheroes who are part of the junior division of the Avengers team.

The series will be headlined by fan-favorite Squirrel Girl, who possesses incredible agility, super-human strength and the ability to communicate with squirrels.

Squirrel Girl made news recently when Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick expressed a desire to play the cheeky character on the big screen, telling Net A Porter

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

While promoting the upcoming Blu-ray/DVD release of the summer mega-hit Civil War, co-director Joe  Russo in turn said:

“It would be perfect casting, and we’re huge Anna Kendrick fans. »

Venice Film Review: ‘La La Land’

7 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There was a moment back in the 1970s, sometime before “Grease” came out, when the image of people bursting into song and dance in the middle of a motion picture wasn’t simply corny and antiquated; it had come to seem downright strange. Not any more. Our era is immersed in retro musical culture, and it has been for a while — from the visionary postmodern pop swoon of “Moulin Rouge!” to the online resurgence of music video to the high-camp a cappella sincerity of “Glee” and the “Pitch Perfect” films. So what does it take to make a musical today look unabashedly exotic?

Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land,” which opened the Venice Film Festival on a voluptuous high note of retro glamour and style, is the most audacious big-screen musical in a long time, and — irony of ironies — that’s because it’s the most traditional. In his splashy, »

Who is Squirrel Girl?

19 August 2016 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen delves into the history of Squirrel Girl…

With comic book movies on the mind of every executive in the Hollywood system, it’s become standard practice for interviewers to ask actors if they’d like to star in a Marvel or DC film. It’s just a thing now. We at Flickering Myth have been guilty of doing it ourselves in the past. A few months ago, Pitch Perfect’s Anna Kendrick was asked this question and she replied, “My brother sent me a Squirrel Girl comic because he thinks I should [play her]. I don’t know what Squirrel Girl does other than be half squirrel, but I could be half squirrel.”

Perhaps surprisingly, the comment gained some traction. Suddenly there were fan petitions for Marvel Studios to cast Kendrick in the role and even Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright voiced his approval. Earlier today we brought »

Russos tease a “new character” for Avengers: Infinity War and endorse Anna Kendrick as Squirrel Girl

19 August 2016 1:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of months ago, Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick made an off-handed comment that she would like to play Squirrel Girl in a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. Surprisingly, it was a story that caught a lot of wind and even Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright rang in his endorsement. But two men who really matter – in terms of making decisions at least – are The Russo Brothers who are currently developing Avengers: Infinity War. Would they like to see Kendrick join the McU?

“It would be perfect casting, and we’re huge Anna Kendrick fans,” Joe Russo told Yahoo! Movies.

However, it would appear that Squirrel Girl will not be a part of Avengers: Infinity War – but that’s not to say it will be filled with characters already announced. “Anthony [Russo] would probably die from exhaustion if we introduced another character,” Joe joked before his brother added, “That »

The Russo Brothers Agree With Edgar Wright: Actress Anna Kendrick Would Make An Excellent Squirrel Girl

18 August 2016 2:20 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Anna Kendrick certainly seems to be gathering quite the influential supporters. A couple months back, the Pitch Perfect actress shared with Net-a-Porter that the Marvel character Squirrel Girl had recently been brought to her attention when asked about her possibly joining the ranks of actor superheroes.

"My brother sent me a Squirrel Girl comic because he thinks I should [play her]," she told the outlet back in late June. "I don’t know what Squirrel Girl does other than be half squirrel, but I could be half squirrel!”

Edgar Wright, who Kendrick had previosuly worked with on Scott Pilgrim vs. the World -- and who had worked with Marvel for years on the Ant-Man film before he stepped down due to creative differences -- had her back, and proceeded to tweet the following some time later:

In Scott Pilgrim: Superman, Cap America, Human Torch, Punisher, Cap Marvel, Lego Robin & The Atom. Get @AnnaKendrick47 a Squirrel Girl film. »

Russo Brothers Vouch For Anna Kendrick As Squirrel Girl, Tease Infinity War

18 August 2016 1:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two months ago, Squirrel Girl was widely considered to be one of, if not the most obscure superheroes in the Marvel catalog – that was, until Pitch Perfect stalwart Anna Kendrick threw her support behind the cutesy character, claiming that she’d be down for the part.

She wasn’t alone in thinking that, either, with the illustrious Edgar Wright also vouching for Kendrick to nab the role, despite the fact that there’s currently no Squirrel Girl movie in production.

More News From The Web

Does Kendrick have enough clout to spearhead a feature film based purely on fan support? Who knows. But in the intervening weeks, the actress has found two new supporters in Joe and Anthony Russo, who know a thing or two about the superhero space after helming Captain America: Civil War.

Speaking to Yahoo, the directing siblings stated: “It would be perfect casting, and we’re huge Anna Kendrick fans. »
