Marvel’s “New Warriors” Sets Its Cast

Milana Vayntrub (“This Is Us”) and Derek Theler (“Baby Daddy”) have scored the lead roles in Freeform and Marvel’s new TV series “New Warriors” based on the comics title of the same name.

Vayntrub has scored the breakout role of Squirrel Girl in the series, while Theler will play the male lead role of Mister Immortal in what’s dubbed Marvel’s first live-action scripted comedy which has scored a ten episode first season.

The duo lead an ensemble cast that includes Jeremy Tardy as Night Thrasher, Calum Worthy as Speedball, Matthew Moy as Microbe and Kate Comer as Debrii.

The story follows six young people learning to cope with their abilities in a world where bad guys can be as terrifying as bad dates. ABC Signature picked the show up straight to series in April.
