Set to launch in 2018, Marvel Rising will begin with six, four-minute digital shorts created to introduce viewers to the world where a new wave of heroes are looking to make a name for themselves.
There are a few typical pseudo-fans excited about the diverse cast, and Marvel pushing for more multicultural representation...
Marvel is doubling down on its next generation of heroes with the announcement of Marvel Rising, a new multi-platform initiative focusing on younger characters including Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl and members of the Inhumans.
Sana Amanat, Marvel's Director of Content & Character Development, added, "This project is unlike anything we've done before-from featuring the rising and fan-favorite stars of the Marvel Universe, to a visually distinct animation style, this is a groundbreaking animated event".
Basically, Marvel Entertainment is going all-in on their Social Justice Warrior heroes: Captain Marvel, Kamala Khan, American Chavez, Inferno, Exile, Squirrel Girl, Daisy Johnson, and Ghost-Spider/Spider-Gwen. Chloe Bennet will voice Quake, a character she now portrays in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Kim Raver is Captain Marvel.
Will you be checking out Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors when it premieres in late 2018? Milana Vayntrub is Squirrel Girl.
"Marvel characters are so relatable because they live in our world and face the same challenges we do".
Voice actors for the project include ABC's Agents of SHIELD's Ming-Na, Chloe Bennet and Dove Cameron, as well as Milana Vayntrub as Squirrel Girl, the role she was signed to play in the live-action New Warriors series now being shopped to outlets after Disney's Freeform passed on the project.
In a Marvel video released this morning, executive producer Cort Lane said, "There are superhero stories, then there are Marvel superhero stories, which are very much about characters".
