Well, this is interesting. Marvel has just announced a new TV series based on ‘MARVEL’S NEW WARRIORS’ comics. The show will star Squirrel girl, yes, you heard that right. The show is being pitched as a 30 minute comedy and is being planned to release next year on the ‘Freeform’ channel.
- Here’s the official synopsis;
“Marvel’s New Warriors” is about 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. Not quite super, not yet heroes, “Marvel’s New Warriors” is about that time in your life when you first enter adulthood and feel like you can do everything and nothing at once — except in this world, bad guys can be as terrifying as bad dates.
Marvel has also given a description of how Squirrel girl will be portrayed in the show.
- The series will feature fan-favorite “Squirrel Girl” (Doreen Green) as a totally empowering fan girl—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 that she has faith in people and teaches them to believe in themselves. Additional cast to be announced.
This will be Marvel’s second show on Freeform, the first one being a “Cloak and Dagger” TV show.
