Squirrel Girl Headed To TV With ‘New Warriors’

New Warriors

TVLine has just announced that Marvel and ABC Studios are developing a New Warriors half hour comedy series which would feature Squirrel Girl. The show doesn’t currently have a network attached, as Marvel is currently shopping around for cable and streaming outlets.

The New Warriors are a superhero team made of teenagers, and for the show has been confirmed to include Doreen Green (aka Squirrel Girl). Other members in the comics include Nova, Haechi, Hummingbird, Justice, Scarlet Spider, Speedball, Sun Girl, and Water Snake. The New Warriors were also the group responsible for the tragedy that marked the beginning of the comic Civil War. Squirrel Girl was not a member of the team in the comics, but is likely included for the show due to her recent surge in popularity. Another possible member of the team for television could be Ms. Marvel as her name had been tossed around for a potential show several times, and this teenage team could be the perfect place for her.

With New Warriors being developed as a show, it is unlikely a primarily film-based actress like Anna Kendrick would sign on to play the character of Squirrel Girl, but one can hope. Furthermore, like all Marvel shows it is assumed this will take place within the MCU.

    Ouch

  • Worldmind

    Wow, the New Warriors done as a half-hour comedy?? If it’s done as them filming themselves for a reality tv show taking down this week’s crew of bad guys, and things not going quite to plan…… it sounds interesting! And Shannon Purser for Squirrel Girl, there ya go :)

    • Bjacks

      Too bad we already got Civil War cause in the comics, wasn’t it The New Warriors filming their reality show that caused Civil War to happen in the first place?

      • Worldmind

        Well that’s what I was referencing, obviously it was changed for the movie CW, and a Stamford-like incident (nuking a town or school full of kids) clearly wouldn’t happen on a sitcom.

    • SAMURAI36

      Wow dude, really? Marvel rider to the end, huh?

      • Worldmind

        Really geez, what is your problem? So you’re a DC fan, yes we get it. Stop trying to take a dump on someone else’s rug, and chill the f**k out.

        • Carl

          You’ll never hear the end of Samurai36’s hate for Marvel and blind love of DC. He is insufferable.

          • SAMURAI36

            You do realize that the guy you’re defending, is has just as much “blond love” for Marvel, right? Kinda like you do.

          • Carl

            I haven’t seen that from him yet. I don’t either so I’ll assume you are lying again.

          • SAMURAI36

            What do you mean, “yet”? He’s been here for months. You think this is the first time I’ve interacted with him?
            I think the issue is, you can’t recognize Marvel Zombie-ism, because you’re a Marvel Zombie yourself. I can’t even get you to honestly critique any of their movies, the way you like to pick apart everything that DC does. It’s like Marvel is the Holy Grail for you, & talking about it is tantamount to blasphemy. So you quickly shift the discussion to DC, as a means of deflecting. Like you did here.

          • Carl

            Nope. Just haven’t read enough of his comments. Not sure why people like you insist on calling people silly names like “Marvel Zombie”. It’s called being a fan, there is nothing wrong with that. If Marvel makes something bad, I’ll call them out on it. The Death of Wolverine was an awful comic. There, happy. lol

          • SAMURAI36

            LMAO, “death of Wolverine”. GTFOH. I asked you about the movies & TV shows, & show give me some obscure comic. But you’re not a Marvel Zombie. Riiiight.
            And yes, you’re a Marvel Zombie, in the same vein that you like to label people like me a “Blind DC follower”. I don’t get to be “just a fan”, but you do? You sound more & more like Trump everyday.

          • Carl

            What don’t you understand? You blindly love everything DC and freely admit it. I like what I find good about Marvel and DC.

          • SAMURAI36

            Still waiting for a critique of the latest Marvel film. I challenge you to point out 5 things that were wrong with it.

          • Carl

            It was a great movie so it would be very hard to find 5 things wrong. People tend to ignore the small nitpicky stuff when a movie is so good. Wait, what movie are we talking about, you seem to be unable to name it? lol

          • SAMURAI36

            Whatever the last movie was, genius. Which I said in my last post.
            Bit you just proved my point, that you can see no fault in Marvel, because you’re a Zombie.

          • Carl

            What’s wrong with you, why can’t you name the movie?

      • Carl

        I bet you think Powerless will be great…

        • SAMURAI36

          Yep, sure do. Just like, based on your initial response, you think this show will suck. Which it will.

          • Carl

            So you think Powerless will be great? What are you talking about now? What show do I think will suck? Certainly not the New Warriors show based on what I said. You do have a reading comprehension problem so I guess I’ll have to reiterate my opinion.

            I think the New Warriors show is a new, interesting idea. I don’t know if it will be good or not.

          • SAMURAI36

            Can’t read as usual. I just said Powerless will be great. Nothing you said about NW sounded like excitement. If anything, it sounded like trepidation, masquerading as optimism.
            And even now, it doesn’t sound like you have much faith in it. And rightly you shouldn’t, because deep down, you know that this has a huge potential for FAILURE. Especially based on Marvel’s current track record for developing shows.
            But good luck cheering for that losing team.

          • Carl

            Dude, relax. Powerless is the show that sounds like a disaster already. I don’t have blind faith like you so yes I’m not going to anoint the idea of a show. That would be foolish. Marvel does not have a poor record with TV shows. AoS, Agent Carter, Daredevil and Jessica Jones are all good shows that are well received. Not by you of course because you hate everything Marvel without reason. You’ve never denied that fact either. lol

          • SAMURAI36

            Listen to you…. “Carter was well received”. That’s why it was cancelled, huh? AoShit is “well received” which is why it only has about 2M viewers? And it got moved to the death knell timeslot?
            This is the Marvel Zombie Denial Dance that people like you do. In the meantime, they’ve had a terrible track record with shows in development. So far, they’ve had FOUR cancelled shows in development.
            But go ahead, remain in your Zombie denial. You’ll probably act like you didn’t read this post as well (even though we both know you read EVERYTHING I write).

          • Carl

            Yes Agents of Shield and Agent Carter are well received. With the exception of the 1st half of the 1st season of Shield, the show has been viewed as good by people who actually watch it. (not you of course because you hate things you’ve never seen) Again you mistake # of viewers with the quality of a show / movie.

            Marvel hasn’t cancelled any shows in development. I don’t think you understand how these things work. A pilot gets made, then the networks decide to pick it up or not. In these cases the smart decision was made to not pick up a show that didn’t look good. Would you rather they just go ahead regardless? No wait, you would just go on blind faith.

          • SAMURAI36

            You’re a HUGE liar, man. HH has documented the several shows that were cancelled in their developmental phase. A few of the showrunners (including Jeph Loeb, President of Marvel TV) have gone on record, in saying that those shows were ones that the networks felt weren’t strong.

            And what you described is PRECISELY what happens when a show gets cancelled in development.

            But since you’re lying, here’s the proof:

            http://tvline.com/2016/05/12/marvels-most-wanted-cancelled-abc-spinoff/

            And:
            http://collider.com/x-men-series-hellfire-fox/
            And even the shows they have coming on network TV don’t look promising. Who’s talking about Legion? Or C&D? This NW thing falls in the same category, of stuff that Marvel is throwing at the wall, in hopes of seeing what will stick.

          • Carl

            I don’t think you understand what a lie is. When you say that I hate DC, that is a lie because I really do like DC.

            Now let me educate you again here. Cancelling a show requires it to have been picked up and in active production. Passing on a show may be called canceling semantically but what is actually happening is the studio or network decided not to make the show. A pilot may have been made but those are paid for one offs made to prove that the concept should be made into a series.

            I’m sure you know DC has a long history of those as well. Justice League in the 90s with Atom, Green Lantern, Fire, Ice, etc had a pilot. Wonder Woman with Adrienne Palicki had a really awful pilot. The Aquaman spinoff from Smallville got a pilot. All were smartly passed on or canceled as you would call it.

            I hope you learned something. :)

          • SAMURAI36

            I don’t think you understand what a lie is. When you say that I hate DC, that is a lie because I really do like DC.

            You’re lying when you say that these shows are doing well, or were well received. You have no proof of that, other than the fact that YOU like those shows. But your blind faith for Marvel, keeps you in denial of those fact.

            Now let me educate you again here. Cancelling a show requires it to have been picked up and in active production. Passing on a show may be called canceling semantically but what is actually happening is the studio or network decided not to make the show. A pilot may have been made but those are paid for one offs made to prove that the concept should be made into a series.

            See, this is why you get called a retarded idiot. I specifically stated “canceled in their developmental phase”. Which specifically accounts for what you are describing.

            I’m sure you know DC has a long history of those as well. Justice League in the 90s with Atom, Green Lantern, Fire, Ice, etc had a pilot. Wonder Woman with Adrienne Palicki had a really awful pilot. The Aquaman spinoff from Smallville got a pilot. All were smartly passed on or canceled as you would call it.

            Yes, all of those were indeed canceled. I have no probs admitting that. Unlike you, who can’t bring yourself to admit Marvel’s recent failures.
            Moreover, those failed DC shows were from several years ago, & DC has recouped since then. Meanwhile, the Marvel cancellations are from he past few weeks/months ago. Also, DC has had a far better track record with TV for the past near 7 decades, whereas Marvel is UST NOW finding success with TV.
            But that’s just one more thing for you to be in denial about.

            I hope you learned something. :)

            Hardly. Telling me stuff I already knew, & then being in denial about it, hardly constitutes teaching me anything.

          • Carl

            So you learned nothing again and hurled more base insults. You should really stop embarrassing yourself. Please end the toxicity for the HH community’s sake.

            Enjoy all that hatred, I’ll be enjoying great Marvel and DC TV.

          • SAMURAI36

            Yep, just like I thought. Right back to your Zombie-ism. Good luck with that.

          • Carl

            What do you mean? I don’t eat brains and I’m not dead.

  • Armand Rock

    so will Vance Astro be in the show? I would love to see him do live action however if he is in this it means we would never see him in Guardians of the Galaxy and i much prefer the Guardians version of the character.

  • Origami Rose

    Over it

  • SAMURAI36

    LMAO, fail.

    • Worldmind

      A Batman show without Batman. Fail. Showrunner leaves Powerless. Fail. Supergirl can’t get anyone to watch without jumping ship and shoehorning Superman into the show. Fail.

      • Carl

        I agree with the 1st 2 but Supergirl was pretty good. I’m sure it’ll do well on the CW. I’m happy they were allowed to use Superman. WB finally wised up and let it happen. I wish they didn’t kill Arrow’s Suicide Squad.

      • SAMURAI36

        So, you’re mad that you’re gonna be alone in supporting this show, is that it? Look around you; you’re the only one here that’s excited about this. In fact, I challenge you to go to any of the major comic book sites, & find 10 people who are truly excited about this.

        For that matter, even YOU don’t even sound excited about this, based on your first response.

        But okay, I’ll play your desperate competition game…

        A Batman show without Batman. Fail.

        Gotham show without Batman, that’s lasted to a 3rd season, with 7+M viewers. SUCCESS.

        Showrunner leaves Powerless. Fail.

        And yet, it’s still happening. And since when is a showrunner leaving a show considered a “fail”? Unless you wanna count Daredevil as a fail, then I suggest you rethink that.

        Supergirl can’t get anyone to watch without jumping ship and shoehorning Superman into the show. Fail.

        LMAO, now you’re just making stuff up. Supergirl averaged TEN MILLION VIEWERS for season one. Nothing Marvel has done on TV, has had that many viewers.

        But let’s look at some REAL fails:

        • Agent Carter cancelled. Fail.

        • Marvel’s Most Wanted scrubbed before it saw the light of day. Fail.

        • AoShit has been on the cancellation chopping block since it’s first season, with a record breaking low viewership. Moved to a kill zone timeslot (10pm). Given a 3rd rate Ghost Rider to help save the show. Fail.

        • Marvel doing Damage Control, in attempts of competing with DC’s Powerless. Fail.

        • X-Men TV show (Hellfire Club) scrubbed before it gets off the ground. Fail.

        • And now, we have what’s gonna be a 5th rate TV show, where the main draw is a character that no one even cares about (do YOU even care about SG?) Guess which category this show is gonna fall in?

        Here’s a hint: according to the report, the show doesn’t even have a network that’s picked it up yet. Not even ABC, who technically owns the show, is guaranteed to pick it up.

        Good luck cheering for the losing team, though.

  • SAMURAI36

    Let me guess: this’ll be connected to the MCU, right? LMAO.

    • Carl

      Maybe it will. You got a problem with that? Let Marvel do their thing and let DC do theirs. They both work for different reasons.

      • SAMURAI36

        Shut up dude. You don’t get to follow me around, but then pretend to not be reading my posts when I completely expose your stupidity.

        • Fenix

          You’re a huge joke who prefers Faygo to Coke.

        • Carl

          I can’t ignore all your toxic comments. I’m trying to help the HH community be a bit more respectable. Things like hurling base insults make this community look childish. Blind love of one thing and biased hate against another makes it look ignorant. Long rants make it look insane.

          • SAMURAI36

            LMAO at you creating respectability, when you are the antithesis to it. Somebody re-up this guy’s prescription, to help quell his delusion.

          • Carl

            smh, no. Explain to me how your spreading of blind, biased hate for Marvel isn’t toxic.

  • Carl

    Could be interesting. Definitely a different idea. I wonder if it’ll be an action comedy?

    Guess this means no Anna Kendrick though. :'(

  • call_me_daddy

    Millie Brown as Squirrel Girl…… DO ITTTTTT

  • Colonious McGraham

    hopefully this doesn’t dead Nova in the movies. Would love to see him show up.

  • Hinscher

    So is Anna Kendrick going to jump on this? or seeing as this is a Marvel “non Netflix” show it will probably be crap and she will pass.
