Marvel developing new comedy series based on Squirrel Girl and the New Warriors?


Following the successes of more adult-oriented shows like Daredevil, ABC Studios and Marvel are targeting younger audiences and reporting that they’re developing a new half-hour comedy show based on the New Warriors with Squirrel Girl being the central focus. Currently, the show is being pitched to various cable and streaming channels.

The original New Warriors was created by editor Tom DeFalco, who brought together existing Marvel comic book characters Firestar, Marvel Boy, Namorita, Nova and Speedball and added in the newly-created Night Thrasher. Over time, the team was joined by Silhouette, Rage, Hindsight Lad, Bandit, Dagger, Darkhawk, Powerpax, Turbo and the Scarlet Spider.

It is outstanding that Marvel is completely open to putting almost their entire roster on both the big and little screen. With other upcoming shows like Cloak and Dagger coming to Freeform and Runaways coming to Hulu, it’ll also be without a doubt that Squirrel Girl will be an instant hit with the younger audiences.
