Maybe the closest thing we’ll get to seeing the glory that is “The Tragedy of Loki of Asgard,” the barely-seen play that graces our eyeballs for only three minutes in 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok, is the upcoming series of one-act Marvel plays that can be put on by high schoolers. At the very least, both Thor and Loki are among the heroes set to take center stage in one of the various one-act plays available for high school theater programs to purchase through the newly announced Marvel Spotlight.

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.
