Coming at you with some television news this afternoon. We’ve learned that Marvel is going to expand on the Freeform platform by introducing their first live-action comedy called New Warriors which will feature none other than Squirrel Girl. To quote some of the details we have so far.
New Warriors revolves around six young people with powers living and working together. With powers and abilities on the opposite end of the spectrum of The Avengers, the New Warriors want to make a difference in the world…even if the world isn’t ready. With Freeform focused on a group dubbed “becomers” — those experiencing a series of firsts in life, including first loves and first jobs — New Warriors explores the journey into adulthood, except in this world, they’re not quite super and not yet heroes and the guys can be as terrifying as bad dates.
The series will feature Marvel fan-favorite “Squirrel Girl” (aka Doreen Green) as a totally empowering fan girl who is described as tough, optimistic and a natural leader. Doreen is confident and has the powers of a squirrel: she’s acrobatic, can fight and talk to other squirrels. Her most important trait is said to be her faith in people and ability to teach them to believe in themselves.
So I have to say that I’m excited to see the New Warriors on the small screen with Squirrel Girl coming along for the ride as well. The show will be 30 minutes and has been greenlit for 10 episodes. I’m hoping that this will open the door for a Young Avengers television series as were already getting Cloak & Dagger coming out in 2018 as well. New Warriors is set for 2018. It’s a good time to be a Marvel television fan I have to say.
