Marvel’s New Warriors gets a cast

Move over Anna Kendrick, there’s a new Squirrel Girl in town

Milana Vayntrub and Derek Theler have been announced as the two leads for the upcoming Marvel/ABC series New Warriors. Vayntrub will play Squirrel Girl – if we can’t have an Anna Kendrick Squirrel Girl movie then we’re pretty happy with this alternative – while Theler will play Mister Immortal.

I am thrilled beyond belief to be working with this incredible group of actors. They are funny, sincere, eager, charming and perfectly embody these characters. It’ll be a blast and an honor to create this show with each of them – Kevin Biegel, Showrunner


The live action comedy, a first for Marvel, will also feature Jeremy Tardy as Night Thrasher, Calum Worthy as Speedball, Matthew Moy as Microbe and Kate Comer as Debrii. It follows the lives of six young people coming to terms with their unconventional powers.
