Freeform’s upcoming Marvel Comics adaption New Warriors has cast its two leads.
Milana Vayntrub (This Is Us) is set to play Squirrel Girl while Derek Theler (Baby Daddy) is set to play Mister Immortal. They lead the ensemble cast in the 10-episode series about six young people learning to cope with their abilities in a world where bad guys can be as terrifying as bad dates. Joining Vayntrub and Theler are Jeremy Tardy as Night Thrasher, Calum Worthy as Speedball, Matthew Moy as Microbe and Kate Comer as Debrii.
It remains to be seen how comic book to comedy show will work with viewers and recent evidence might suggest it will have an uphill battle to convince with the cancellation of Powerless but we will see.
