Following the box office successes of popular Marvel superhero movies like “Iron Man” or “Captain America,” Marvel is once again adding new superheroes into its list of crusaders through the 10-episode series, “New warriors.” The upcoming series was picked up in April and is expected to be released in 2018 via Freeform.

The brand-new Marvel series came from Marvel Television and ABC Signature, which is ABC Studios’ cable division. It will be Freeform’s second Marvel series and will be executive produced by Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s TV head, Jim Chory and showrunner Kevin Biegel.


Following its materialization three months ago, the upcoming Marvel series, “New Warriors” has recently revealed its ensemble cast. The characters of the series are led by “This Is Us” star Milana Vayntrub as Doreen Green aka Squirrel Girl and “Baby Daddy” alum Derek Theler as Craig Hollis aka Mister Immortal.

Aside from Vayntrub and Theler, the cast also includes Kate Corner as Deborah Fields aka Debrii, Matthew Moy as Zack Smith aka Microbe, Jeremy Tardy as Dwayne Taylor aka Night Thrasher and Calum Worthy as Robbie Baldwin aka Speedball. According to Biegel, the chosen actors are the perfect fit for the characters because they are “funny, sincere, eager and charming.” Loeb, on the other hand, revealed that they chose a “diverse and incredibly talented cast” to portray Marvel’s iconic characters.

Character description

As for a short description for the cast of characters, Green possesses the amazing powers of a squirrel, hence, the name Squirrel Girl. Green’s best friend is a squirrel named Tippy Toe, and her best quality is optimism.

Mister Immortal, on the other hand, insists that he can’t die and he also possesses an incredible superpower.

Night Trasher is a "brilliant and noble" entrepreneur who is a great believer in justice while Speedball is an “impulsive people-pleaser” that lacks self-confidence and throws uncontrollable kinetic energy balls.

Moreover, Microbe is a described as a “shy hypochondriac” who is well-versed when it comes to germs. Keeping secrets around him is also quite impossible.
