Squirrel Girl And New Warriors Cast Announced
The New Warriors TV Series have their cast announced along with Squirrel Girl!
Freeform’s TV series about Marvel’s New Warriors recently confirmed their cast list alongside fan favorite Squirrel Girl. Playing the role of Squirrel Girl will be “This Is Us” star Milana Vayntrub and she will be joined by many up and coming actors. Showrunner Kevin Biegel was very excited to have acquired this cast and looks forward to establishing a unique tone for the show.
“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.”
Additional cast members include: Jeremy Tardy (“Dear White People”) as Night Thrasher, Calum Worthy (“Austin and Ally”) as Speedball, Matthew Moy (“2 Broke Girls”) as Microbe, and Kate Comer (“The Comeback”) as Debrii. Derek Theler (“Baby Daddy”) will be sharing the spotlight with Milana Vayntrub as the other key character Mister Immortal.
There have been quite a few actors that have campaigned for the role of Doreen Green, AKA Squirrel Girl, but the decision ultimately came down to a more applicable TV personality that fell within the show’s budgetary constraints. Shannon Purser (Barb from “Stranger Things”) pushed to take the role with an ample amount of fan support. Before that fans were pushing strong for Anna Kendrick to take the lead if the character made her way to film.
As of now, Freeform’s New Warriors TV series is slated for a 2018 release with no exact date set.
