New Warriors TV Series Team - Squirrel Girl

As superheroes continue to dominate the box office, Marvel Television is expanding its reach from ABC (Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter) and Netflix (The Defenders and its individual preceding shows) to Freeform, the network formerly known as ABC Family. Cloak and Dagger will be their first show on Freeform in 2018, and it’ll be followed by New Warriors, a series from Cougar Town creator Kevin Biegel that involves the fan favorite character Squirrel Girl and a handful of other superpowered teens.

A new press release confirms that the show’s key actors have been secured, so read on to discover the members of the New Warriors cast.

misfits american remake

The original Misfits wasn’t a spectacular show, but it was definitely a show the hooked and held onto your attention. Crude, violent, and bizarre, it felt like lightning in a bottle: a combination of a stellar cast, including a pre-Game of Thrones Iwan Rheon and a pre-Loving Ruth Negga, outlandish plots about teens who use their abnormal superpowers to get into dumb hijinks and have lots and lots of sex.

It was a magic that couldn’t even be captured again when most of the original members left, with a second-gen cast anchored by the equally talented Joe Gilgun, who now appears alongside Negga on Preacher. The appeal of Misfits was that it went in bizarre places that mainstream superhero shows wouldn’t dare dream, and all of the cast were game for it. Which is why the Freeform remake that was just announced feels like a bad idea.

Cloak and Dagger Logo Marvel Freeform

Let’s be real: Marvel Entertainment has produced some pretty damn cheesy television over the past few years. They’re not necessarily bad shows, mind you, but many of them have dipped into super cheesy territory: overly dramatic, seemingly lacking any sense of self-awareness, the works. I don’t need to name names because you know it when you see it.

Today, Freeform (formerly ABC Family) released a trailer for Marvel’s new teen-centric series Cloak and Dagger, and it could just be the editing in this trailer, but man, this show looks like Chester Cheetah: dangerously cheesy.

New Warriors TV Series Team - Squirrel Girl

Earlier this month, Freeform gave a straight-to-series order to New Warriors, a new TV show based on the Marvel Comics title of the same name, which focuses on a team that is basically a junior varsity version of the Avengers. Squirrel Girl was announced as the main character, but the rest of the team had yet to be revealed. That changed today.

New Warriors TV Series

So far Marvel Television has kept their small screen endeavors limited to shows like Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter on ABC and the round-up of street-level superhero shows that are leading up to an assembly of The Defenders on Netflix (which we just learned will be debuting this August). But Marvel’s new Cloak and Dagger series is heading to Freeform, and another Marvel series won’t be far behind on the same channel.

New Warriors is a Marvel Comics series that follows a group of young superheroes who are like the junior varsity version of The Avengers, not unlike what the New Mutants are to the X-Men. However, the TV series, which we first heard about last year, will star a character who has only ever been in the cartoon version of the team in The Ultimate Spider-Man animated series (seen above), and that’s Squirrel Girl.
