The New Warriors will be a Marvel TV series, and the roster will feature fan favorite, Squirrel Girl.

Are you ready for a half-hour comedy series set in the Marvel Universe? One that features younger heroes with offbeat codenames and superpowers? Well, you’d better be, because Marvel and ABC are developing New Warriors.

The New Warriors first appeared in Marvel Comics in the late ’80s/early ’90s, and featured young heroes with unfortunate names like Night Thrasher and Speedball. There’s no word on who would make up the TV roster, except for one notable name: Squirrel Girl. Yes, Squirrel Girl, former Great Lakes Avengers member and star of current Marvel Comics sensation The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl by Ryan North and Erica Henderson.

There’s been all manner of internet craziness recently surrounding the idea of Anna Kendrick as Squirrel Girl after comments she made about enjoying the comic, but that’s unlikely to happen within the confines of a half hour TV series.

It’s possible that New Warriors won’t end up on ABC, but this is all really early. TV Linebroke the news, and there’s no word on a showrunner or anything more substantial. This probably isn’t John Ridley’s mysterious Marvel series, though. No word on whether development of this comedy puts the chill on the other Marvel TV comedy in development, Damage Control, either.
