Breaking News: Marvel Announce Cast For New Warriors TV Show

So, some people may remember that a few months ago Marvel announced that the New Warriors (Squirrel Girl, Speedball, Night Trasher et al.) would be getting their own TV show on Freeform, the former ABC Family channel for 2018. AT the time no other information had been released.

Well, Marvel have now announced the casting line up for the titular team and it is thusly: Milana Vayntrub (This Is Us, Other Space, Ghostbusters) as Squirrel Girl, Derek Theler (Baby Daddy) as Mr. Immortal, Jeremy Tardy (War Dogs, Bone Tomahawk) as Night Trasher, Calum Worthy (Austin and Ally, The Coppertop Flop Show, Stormworld, Smallville) as Speedball, Matthew Moy (2 Broke Girls, Steven Universe, Scrubs) as Microbe and Kate Comer (Hello My Name Is Doris, The Comeback, The Office) as Debrii.

Out of all of the names here, I'm only really familiar with Calum Worthy (having played Lightning Lad in Smallville) and Matthew Moy (who is Lars in Steven Universe), so I can't really say too much on the casting choices, but hey, the series has Squirrel Girl in it, so I can't complain.

    I know little of The New Warriors, nothing of the cast, and not much more of Freeform. That does not curb my enthusiasm. With Cloak and Dagger set to debut, it looks like Freeform will be its own universe. Which is probably a good thing. Too much crossover can be a bad thing even in the comics.

    Judging by the photos in the article, the cast itself looks like a cohesive group. I am not setting expectations just yet. Though I will be sorely disappointed if Squirrel Girl does not take down Dr. Doom at least once by Season 2.

    I do believe that the Freeform shows are in the MCU, but they’re going to do their own thing, like the Defenders.
    As for Doctor Doom. Licencing problems (damn Fox). She might take on Thanos, but not Doom. Sorry.

    The only ones cast I’m familiar with are Milana Vayntrub and Matthew Moy. She’s the lady from the AT&T ads and has a quirkiness about her that might be a good fit for the character. I’ve seen Matt on 2 Broke Girls and he works well in an ensemble comedy. If they do this show right, it has great potential.
