The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl has gained a lot of popularity over the years. Whether it be in the comics, or her appearances in Marvel Animation projects, it’s hard not to love her energy. Now she’s coming back with not just a fan favorite creator, but a very familiar voice as well.
Marvel’s Squirrel Girl: The Unbeatable Radio Show! is a new scripted podcast series from writer Ryan North. You might remember that North was the writer for the four year run of the character’s comic series run. Returning to voice Squirrel Girl is Milana Vayntrub, who also voiced the character in animation for Marvel Rising projects. The show is directed by Giovanna Sardelli, and has original music by Justin Huertas and Steven Tran. Joining Vayntrub in the cast are Crystal Lucas Perry (Nancy Whitehead), Leo Sheng (Koi Boi), Davied Morales (Chipmunk Hunk), Peter Hermann (Brain Drain), Erica Schroeder (Tippy T. Squirrel), and Tina Benko (Rachel Oskar).
Here’s the official synopsis: “Squirrel Girl has taken down Thanos and Doctor Doom – but now she faces something far more terrifying… living authentically. The new series follows Empire State University college student, Doreen Green, who has recently been outed as a super hero – The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl! Hoping to unify her personas in the public eye, Squirrel Girl has created a new student radio show on ESU’s own college station. With the help of her best girl-friend, Nancy Whitehead as producer, and her best squirrel-friend, Tippy-Toe in the booth; Doreen is ready to help more people than ever with her greatest super hero advice. And when the going get rough, she can always lean on her heroic friends: Iron Man, Spider-Man, Chipmunk Hunk, Koi Boi, and Brain Drain.
However, with a call-in show comes caller anonymity and not all the folks on the line want help – some want to crime – and crime hard! When a suspicious caller wreaks havoc on New York City, Squirrel Girl and her friends will have to put their heroics to the test and prove that once and for all Doreen Green is the UNBEATABLE Squirrel Girl.
