New ‘Marvel Rising’ Animated Specials Announced

Marvel Entertainment has announced that two more Marvel Rising specials will soon be released. For those who are not aware, Marvel Rising was originally a series of shorts under the name “Marvel Rising: Initiation.” The shorts were later followed up by a TV film titled, ““Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors,” which aired over the weekend.

The two new specials will be titled, “Marvel Rising: Chasing Ghosts,” and “Marvel Rising: Heart of Iron.”

Marvel Rising: Chasing Ghosts will feature the return of Dove Cameron (Gwen Stacy / Ghost-Spider), who was absent from the film. The special will feature Ghost-Spider who will team up with the Secret Warriors to help finally defeat both Sheath and Exile.

Marvel provided a teaser trailer for the short on their official Youtube channel.

The second special, “Marvel Rising: Heart of Iron,” will feature a first time animated appearance of Riri Williams, who is also known as Ironheart. Riri will be voiced by Sofia Wylie.

Marvel provided a short description for the special.

“Marvel Rising: Heart of Iron” will introduce Riri Williams a.k.a. Ironheart to the Marvel Rising universe, voiced by Sofia Wylie (“Andi Mack”). In this 44-minute special, we find Riri Williams adjusting to college life and feeling socially isolated because she is younger than the other students. After Hala the Accuser destroys the school’s engineering lab and kidnaps Riri’s best friend, Riri finds inspiration in her hero Iron Man and hatches a plan to defeat Hala and save the day.

Dove Cameron and Sofia Wylie had some thoughts about their characters in the upcoming specials.

“I am so excited to return to the world of ‘Marvel Rising’ as Ghost-Spider!” said Dove Cameron. “It’s so rewarding to be part of a project that resonates with girls, and speaks to topics and subject matters we can all relate to.”

“I feel so honored to be a part of the Marvel family, but more importantly I’m excited to join a cast of diverse, strong intelligent women!” said Sofia Wylie. “I can’t wait for fans to see my character and to see a little of themselves in this powerful young woman.”

No other details are confirmed at this time so stay tuned for updates.
