Marvel Rising unveils stylish character designs for upcoming animated film

Back in December of last year, Marvel announced their Marvel Rising initiative. Established with the intention to launch six, four-minute digital shorts that will feature Ghost-Spider (AKA Spider-Gwen), in addition to a feature-length animated film starring several of Marvel's more diverse heroes. With many of the characters set to be voiced by their live-action counterparts, the studio aims to "inspire younger audiences with their relatable and inclusive heroes that reflects the world we live in." With that admirable goal in mind, fans can soon look forward to characters the likes of Ghost-Spider, Quake, Inferno, Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, America Chavez, Patriot, and Captain Marvel enter Rising's animated fray.  

According to the official press release distributed by Marvel:

“Marvel Rising” will feature powered teens like Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Quake, Patriot, America Chavez, and Inferno, joining together, rising up, and taking on an unimaginable force that threaten their young lives and the universe, alike. This misfit team aims to inspire younger audiences with their relatable and inclusive heroes that reflects the world we live in.

Furthermore, you can get a look at the newly-introduced “Marvel Rising” character models below!

Gwen Stacy aka Ghost-Spider (formerly Spider Gwen) voiced by Dove Cameron (“Descendants,” “Hairspray Live”) – a free spirited teen who found her calling to be a super hero after being bitten by a radioactive spider and gaining spider-like powers. As Ghost-Spider, she aids those in need, but has to keep her alter-ego a secret from her father, Captain George Stacy, who sees Ghost-Spider as more of a menace than a hero.

Daisy Johnson aka Quake voiced by Chloe Bennet (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Nashville”) – a leading agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. whose tendency for rule-breaking gets her into trouble now and then. Daisy befriends the young group of heroes and through them discovers how to become a better leader. She can generate powerful vibrational waves, which produce effects similar to earthquakes.

Dante Pertuz aka Inferno voiced by Tyler Posey (“Teen Wolf,” “Lincoln Heights”) – a brooding, dark loner on the run. Dante has the power of pyrokinesis, which makes him capable of generating flames – however, he is not fully in control of his fiery abilities. It’s a thin line between good guy and villain for the unpredictable Inferno.

Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel voiced by Kathreen Khavari(“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble,” “Big Little Lies”)  – a devoted fan of Super Heroes, especially of her mentor Captain Marvel; she is determined that she too can be a great hero! If only she’d be taken seriously. Kamala is equipped with metamorphic powers that allow her to stretch, enlarge, or shrink her overall size, parts of her body, or alter her physical appearance. She is especially fond of “embiggening” her fists.

Doreen Green aka Squirrel Girl voiced by Milana Vayntrub(“Marvel’s New Warriors,” “This Is Us”) – the uber-positive, hilarious best friend and teammate of Ms. Marvel. With advanced computer skills, enhanced strength, agility, durability, and senses of a squirrel, Doreen (along with her squirrel partner, Tippy Toe!),  is primed and ready to become a successful hero.

America Chavez voiced by Cierra Ramirez (“The Fosters,” “The Secret Life of an America Teenager”) – a strong, independent young hero whose painful past drives her to reject leadership and remain a loner. America’s powers include superhuman strength, speed, and durability, plus the ability to fly.

Rayshaun Lucas aka Patriot voiced by Kamil McFadden (“K.C. Undercover,” “Grown Ups 2”) – a natural born leader who is quick to leap into action to impress his colleagues at S.H.I.E.L.D. Rayshaun strives to live up to Captain America’s legacy with integrity, honesty, and order above all. His skills include heightened strength, speed, stamina, and durability.

Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel voiced by Kim Raver(“Grey’s Anatomy,” “24”) – a bold leader who doesn’t sugar-coat and is guided by a strong sense of duty and honor. She’s the ultimate inspiration for our band of misfit heroes. She is equipped with superhuman strength, can fly at high speeds, and can project intense energy blasts.

Lockjaw and Tippy Toe are voiced by Dee Bradley Baker(“Star Wars Rebels,” “Gravity Falls”). Two lovable and heroic sidekicks: Lockjaw is Kamala’s trusty, teleporting mutt and Tippy Toe is Doreen’s partner in crime and best squirrel friend.

I like the cut of your animated jib, Marvel. Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, America Chavez, and Doreen Green are among some of my favorite characters in Marvel's publishing arm, and I am on board for whatever you've got planned! It's also nice to see some of the studio's Inhuman characters get another shake after the live-action TV series epically tanked in the eyes and hearts of Marvel fans. With any luck, a lot of stylish action, and some clever character chemistry, Marvel Rising will become a complete success, and we can look forward to hearing about more animated offerings, down the road.

MARVEL RISING: SECRET WARRIORS will debut later this year
