    Squirrel Girl could be coming to a TV near you.
    TV Line reports that Marvel and ABC Studios are planning a New Warriors TV show that would focus on the superhero who has an affinity for squirrels. Marvel and ABC declined to comment.

    The report cites sources that say they 30-minute show is now being shopped to various cable and streaming networks, though none were named. New Warriors is a team of teenage superheroes described in the report as "the junior version of The Avengers."
    Squirrel Girl, whose real name is Doreen Green, can communicate with squirrels, while she also has abilities like super-speed and strength. She is a relatively obscure character in the Marvel universe.
    Recently, Pitch Perfect's Anna Kendrick elevated the character's profile somewhat when she said in an interview with Net A Porter that she would like to play Squirrel Girl. "I don't know what Squirrel Girl does other than be half squirrel, but I could be half squirrel!" she said.

    Avengers co-director Joe Russo told Yahoo Movies that Kendrick in the role of Squirrel Girl would be "perfect casting." Scott Pilgrim vs. The World director Edgar Wright also voiced his support for Kendrick on Twitter.
    The TV Live report did not mention any names for actors who might appear in the New Warriors show, while a movie based on that or Squirrel Girl specifically has not been announced.
