Everybody wants to be a hero these days. Comedic actress Anna Kendrick is no exception.

Kendrick, who has Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates hitting theaters in a few weeks, may not know much about comics or super heroes but she does have on particular Marvel character in mind should she ever suit up.

"My brother sent me a Squirrel Girl comic because he thinks I should [play her]," Kendrick tells Net-A-Porter. "I don't know what Squirrel Girl does other than be half squirrel, but I could be half squirrel!"

Kendrick would probably be a great fit for the ambitious and spunky Doreen Green. Her first encounter with Iron Man, when Squirrel Girl tries to impress him and convince him to let her join his super hero escapades, would be a blast having Kendrick riffing with Robert Downey Jr..

The inspiration to play a hero does have a source for Kendrick: Ryan Reynolds. "Ryan is one of the most authentic people I've worked with; I can't think of a person more deserving of a hit like [Deadpool]," the actress explains. "He worked for so many years to get that film made because it's a character that was inside of him."

Deadpool was very much a labor of love for Reynolds who pushed to get the movie made for years on end. It wasn't until some test footage leaked and the Internet went wild in support of a Deadpool film that Reynolds got to bring the character many say he was born to play to life on the big screen.

Will the same be said of Kendrick and Squirrel Girl?
