In a surprising turn of events, rumors have been circulating that Sadie Sink, known for her role as Max in the hit Netflix series “Stranger Things,” might be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). While many fans are excited at the prospect of seeing Sink in a superhero film, the buzz around her potential character has caused some concern.
According to sources close to the production, Sink is being considered for the role of Squirrel Girl, a lesser-known Marvel character with the power to communicate with squirrels and a bushy tail.
While the character has gained a cult following among comic book readers, some are questioning whether the role is a good fit for Sink’s acting abilities.
In an interview with a leading entertainment magazine, a casting director revealed that Sink was on their radar for the role of Squirrel Girl.
“Sadie literally has a lot of talent, and we think she definitely bring something special to that character,” the casting director said. “We know it’s not a traditional superhero role, but we think it could be a lot of fun.”
However, many fans and critics have taken to social media to express their concerns about the potential casting choice. Some have argued that Sink, who is known for her dramatic acting chops, might not be the right fit for a character that is often portrayed as quirky and upbeat.
“I truly love Sadie Sink, but Squirrel Girl just doesn’t really seem like the perfect role for her,” one fan tweeted. “I think they should cast someone with more comedic experience.”
Others have pointed out that Sink’s age might be a hindrance to the role.
Squirrel Girl is typically portrayed as a college-age student, while Sink is only 20 years old. Some have suggested that casting an older actress might be more appropriate for the character.
Despite the concerns, some fans are still holding out hope that Sink will be cast in the MCU, even if it’s not as Squirrel Girl.
“Sadie Sink is a talented actress, and I would love to see her in a Marvel movie,” another fan tweeted. “But I completely agree that the role of Squirrel Girl might not be the best and appropriate fit for her. I hope they find a role that really showcases her abilities.”
This is not the first time that fans have expressed concern over a potential MCU casting choice.
In 2019, the announcement that Robert Pattinson would be playing Batman in the upcoming film “The Batman” sparked a similar backlash among fans.
Despite the criticism, it remains to be seen whether Sink will ultimately be cast as Squirrel Girl or in another role in the MCU.
Marvel Studios is known for making unexpected casting choices, and it’s possible that Sink could surprise fans with a new side of her acting abilities.
For now, fans will have to wait and see what the future holds for Sadie Sink and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Whether she ends up as Squirrel Girl or another character, Sink’s potential casting is a reminder of the endless possibilities that exist within the ever-expanding world of superhero films.
