Squirrel Girl Will Reportedly Lead Marvel's NEW WARRIORS Comedy Series
According to TV Line, Marvel and ABC Studios are developing a new Marvel series called New Warriors, and it will reportedly center on the superhero Squirrel Girl. As you know, Squirrel Girl has been a hot topic of conversation recently because everyone seems to want Anna Kendrick to play the character.
This will be a half-hour comedy series, and it's currently being shopped around to cable and streaming outlets. The report offers a description of the series:
Described as the junior version of The Avengers, the New Warriors are a superhero squad made up of teenagers, one of whom would include Doreen Green (aka Squirrel Girl). For the record, SG can do more than just communicate with the world’s vast squirrel population; she also possesses super-speed and strength.
In the comics, Squirrel Girl serves as the nanny to Luke Cage and Jessica Jones’ daughter. it would be pretty amusing if that happened with the Netflix series, but I'm not expecting that. Also, as much as I would love to see Kendrick in the role, I seriously doubt she will jump on board a TV series to do it. But who knows, anything is possible.
I think this could actually end up being a fun series if it's handled right. I'm curious to learn what exactly Marvel is cooking up for it. What do you all think about seeing a New Warriors TV comedy series with Squirrel Girl leading the charge?
