Marvel's Squirrel Girl may hit TV in New Warriors comedy series

08.31.2016

There's been a lot of talk these past couple of months regarding a Marvel character by the name of Squirrel Girl. As silly as the name sounds, Squirrel Girl does possess super strength and fast healing (a la Wolverine) and yes, she can also talk to squirrels. Thanks to some support from charismatic actress Anna Kendrick and director Edgar Wright, the little-known comic character has snowballed itself into the public eye. Earlier this month there was word that Marvel had trademarked some Squirrel Girl goods, and we may finally now know why.

According to TV Line's sources, Marvel and ABC Studios are developing a half-hour comedy series based on New Warriors. Featuring a team of super heroes that are primarily teenagers, New Warriors would also feature none other than Doreen Green AKA Squirrel Girl. There's no word on whether or not Kendrick would be considered for the role, as the show is in early development and being shopped around to different cable and streaming networks. Given the success of Marvel's recent Civil War: Team Thor short (of which you can watch the hilarity below), I'd say audiences are more than ready for some comic book comedy!

Wish they had said an hour series.
Half hour comedy with a group of teen heroes sounds like it'll end up being like a Nickelodeon show with better effects.

She has an undefeated fight record, and she's the only hero to ever defeat both Dr. Doom and Thanos.

Remember how everyone said Antman is a dumb idea? that movie turned out pretty good even without Edgar Wright. There are some great movies with very dumb premises

It's too bad Kendrick (the one who started all this excitement in the first place) won't be able to play the character in one of the MCU films.
