MARVEL'S NEW WARRIORS Show in Development; Squirrel Girl to Feature

Marvel Entertainment and Freeform have announced details for a new live-action comedy series based on the New Warriors team... but with an addition to the team that will please many a comic book fan.

The series will take Marvel’s comic book New Warriors team but add a further humourous spin to the group across ten half-hour episodes that will debut in 2018.

The blurb on the show reads:

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.

What’s likely to grab the attention of most, though, is that the series will actually feature Doreen Green, aka the beloved Squirrel Girl, as part of the show’s titular team.

Where this fan favourite character is concerned, the official word on her describes her “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.

It’s not yet known which other characters will make up the New Warriors team, although heroes such as Nova, Speedball, Marvel Boy, Scarlet Spider, Silhouette, and Darkhawk have all been members of the group in the comic book realm.

This marks the second collaboration between Marvel and Freeform, with Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger currently in development at the network.

As ever, expect more on Marvel’s New Warriors as we get it.
