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.

Some of the trademarks, like Guardians of the Galaxy and Age of Ultron, have obvious connections to films we already know about. But others, like Strikeforce Morituri and Journey Into Mystery, could just be hinting at other projects to come. Speculate with us after the jump.
