It seems everyone’s a superhero these days. Well, everyone in Hollywood that is. So why won’t anyone let Anna Kendrick play one, huh? In a fairly hilarious bit from MTV’s After Hours, host Josh Horowitz is interviewing Ben Affleck and Anna Kendrick on their new movie, The Accountant. Pretty quickly the whole “interview” turns into a comedy bit about how Anna really wants to play a part in an upcoming superhero movie, none other than Ben Affleck’s upcoming solo Batman film.
And who would Anna play in said Batman movie? Well, duh…. Robin the
Boy Girl Wonder of course. She even busts out a makeshift Robin costume, which ultimately looks more like the Hamburglar from the old McDonald’s commercials. Too bad they’re not making a McDonaldland movie, because if they were, our girl she just nailed that particular audition. You can watch the whole bit in the video above.
On a serious note though, who doesn’t want Anna Kendrick in a superhero movie? Ok, maybe not Batman (although she really could rock as the Carrie Kelley version of Robin, or even Barbara Gordon/Batgirl come to think of it). But there are still plenty of characters out there who would be perfect for Kendrick’s particular brand of cute quirkiness. She’s already gone on record as saying she’d be perfect to play Marvel’s Squirrel Girl, and I can’t help but agree. And if Ellen Page ever decides to retire from playing Kitty Pryde in the X-Men series, Kendrick would be a perfect replacement.
So which superhero do you think Anna Kendrick should get a crack at? Let us know in the comments down below.
Speaking of Justice League, watch Jessica Chobot talk about it!
