As Marvel’s New Warriors continues to put its cast together, the series has moved to add Keith David to its ranks.
Marvel Entertainment and Freeform have announced the news, with the They Live actor to play a “caustic municipal employee” by the name of Ernest Vigman. The character will have a personality clash with the young titular team due to the groups’ “hopeful energy”.
David joins a cast that currently features Milana Vayntrub as Squirrel Girl, Derek Theler as Mister Immortal, Jeremy Tardy as Night Thrasher, Calum Worthy as Speedball, Matthew Moy as Microbe, and Kate Comer as Debrii.
The early synopsis for Marvel’s New Warriors 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.
At present, the plan is for New Warriors to be made up of ten half-hour episodes that will arrive at some point next year.
