Marvel and ABC Studios are reportedly developing New Warriors, a half-hour comedy series that will showcase some of Marvel’s younger, lesser-known heroes, including the unbeatable Squirrel Girl.
TV Line describes the New Warriors TV series as “The junior version of the Avengers,” with a team consisting of teenage superheroes.
The New Warriors TV project doesn’t have a distributor yet but is being shopped to cable and streaming outlets.
Among the leads will be Squirrel Girl, a young woman who has the proportional speed and strength of a squirrel as well as the ability to communicate with squirrels. The identities of the other heroes remain under wraps. In the comics, other New Warriors members have included Scarlet Spider, Speedball, Nova, Hummingbird, and Justice. Squirrel Girl is part of the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon version of the team.
We will have to wait and see how this unfolds.
Rek is still kind of angry at Seppin for making him read a Squirrel Girl comic book years ago, so he’s not too excited about this news.
