Despite the numerous shows on ABC and Netflix, Marvel is continuing its push into television with other series or limited series projects. Along with the recently announced Hulu series “The Runaways” and Freeform teen-centric “Cloak and Dagger” comes word of another work – “New Warriors”.
TV Line is reporting Marvel and ABC Studios are developing a half-hour comedy series based on the teenaged superhero team which would put the focus on Doreen Green a.k.a. Squirrel Girl. The pair are reportedly looking for a home for the project at either a cable network or streaming service.
Talk of Squirrel Girl making the jump to the screen has been rife over the Summer following “Pitch Perfect” star Anna Kendrick saying she would be up for the role while her “Scott Pilgrim” director Edgar Wright and “Avengers: Infinity War” helmers Anthony and Joe Russo also chimed in with their support.
Which service will pick it up is unclear, though very likely it won’t be Netflix as the streaming giant already has plenty of its own and more on the way.
