Marvel Casts Squirrel Girl & More For New Warriors Series

Squirrel Girl likes to eat nuts and kick butts

Milana Vayntrub ("This Is Us", "Silicon Valley") will take the role of Doreen Green (a.k.a Squirrel Girl). If you're looking for something other than what trailers for Cloak & Dagger, The Gifted, and Inhumans already out for public consumption propose, why not consider the upcoming Marvel-Freeform show New Warriors, which features Milana Vayntrub as Squirrel Girl in one of the lead roles?

Casting descriptions for each character describe Squirrel Girl as 'a totally empowered fan-girl whose greatest quality is her optimism'.

As reported by Variety, Vayntrub joins a cast that also includes Derek Theler as Mister Immortal, Kate Comer as Debrii, Matthew McCoy as Microbe, Jeremy Tardy as Thrasher, and Calum Worthy as Speedball. According to Biegel, the chosen actors are the ideal fit for the characters because they are "funny, sincere, eager and charming". Somehow, the next generation of Marvel heroes were reduced to reality show jokes by 2006, before they were unceremoniously killed off in Marvel's Civil War. Brilliant, but also a self-promoter, Dwayne is a Tony Stark type who believes in justice and himself.

Marvel's New Warriors is slated for a 2018 debut.




New Warriors will focus on six heroes coming to terms with their abilities and the impacts on their lives over a 10-episode series. Known as Zack Smith when he's not out fighting crime, Microbe can communicate with germs to tell where you've been and what you did. A people pleaser with a misplaced sense of confidence, he can throw kinetic balls of energy with little ability to control them. Keeping secrets is not really an option around him. But she's also proud, amusing and quick-witted.

Today, Marvel officially announced the casting for Marvel's New Warriors, which will be on the Freeform (formerly ABC Family) network. Confidently out as a lesbian, Deborah is a low-level telekentic, very low like she can move a paper cup.

"Enlisted" creator Kevin Biegel will serve as showrunner and executive producer, with Marvels Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory as executive producers. "We can't wait for the fans to see what's in store when we unleash these iconic characters into the world", he said at the time.

One more thing that we're excited about when it comes to The New Warriors?
