Marvel has revealed they are working on a new full-length featured animated film about a new generation of heroes.

Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors will premiere in 2018 and feature heroes the internet is most excited about – Ms. Marvel aka Kamala Khan (Kathleen Khavari) – Marvel’s first Muslim-American superhero; Miss America aka America Chavez (Cierra Ramirez), Marvel’s first Latino-American LGBT hero ; Squirrel Girl (Milana Vayntrub, who will also play her in the live-action version, Marvel’s New Warriors); Quake (Chloe Bennet, who also plays the live version on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.); Gwen Stacey aka Ghost-Spider/Spider-Gwen (Dove Cameron), who is also set to appear on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.; Inferno (Tyler Posey); Patriot (Kamil McFadden); an Inhuman named Exile (Booboo Stewart); Captain Marvel (Kim Raver); and, Tippy Toe and Lockjaw (both voiced by Dee Bradley Baker). The villain in the series will be Hala, voiced by Ming-Na Wen. There will be six four-minute shorts, which will feature Ghost-Spider, leading up to the film.
