On Tuesday evening a rumor broke that Marvel is working on a New Warriors television series that would feature Squirrel Girl in a lead role. While there has been some buzz from various actresses interested in playing Squirrel Girl over the past few months, the New Warriors is an interesting place for her to land.
You may know all about Squirrel Girl from her current ongoing by Ryan North, Erica Henderson and Rico Renzi, but if you're less familiar with the New Warriors, we've put together a Crash Course for you.
Lest you think Marvel’s branch-out into Hulu for a Runaways series was unusual enough, things are about to get even more squirrel-ly. Not only is a New Warriors comedy series officially in development, but fan-favorite Squirrel Girl might take center stage on the live-action project.
Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist. This week we're going back to the '90s, to imagine a film based on a comic that's mocked almost as much as it's revered, Marvel's New Warriors, written by Fabian Nicieza, with art by Mark Bagley, Darick Robertson, and others.
The solicitations for November's books reveal that Superior Foes Of Spider-Man, by Nick Spencer, and Steve Lieber, and the New Warriors revival, by Christopher Yost and Marcus To, will offer up their swan songs that month.
Neither series sold particularly well -- both were near the bottom of the charts -- but each drew critical acclaim, particularly Superior Foes.
We like diversity here at ComicsAlliance. We've said it before, and we'll say it again. We're also big fans of superheroes, and that probably goes without saying.
We especially like diversity with our superheroes. Diversity broadens the genre's reach, encourages respect and understanding of people's differences, and gives minority audiences more chances to see themselves in fiction, and those are all great things. Because of this, we've come up with a new way to look at diversity in superhero comics - particularly team books. We call it the Harvey/Renee Index.
Marvel is relaunching New Warriors next month under the guidance of writer Christopher Yost and artist Marcus To, and at least three of readers' old favorites, Speedball, Nova (though presumably not the same Nova) and Justice, will be part of the team. New additions include Sun Girl, Scarlet Spider, and Hummingbird.
Marvel's final panel at New York Comic-Con this year was billed as “Superior Spider-Man & Friends," which does not mean Iceman and Firestar, but rather all the books coming out of the Spider-office led by line editor Steve Wacker – which include the last new "teased" titles to be unveiled at the show.
Wacker was on hand to lead the panel, joined by writers Dan Slott, Kelly Sue DeConnick and Nick Spencer, editors Sana Amanat, Ellie Pyle, Jake Thomas and Tom Brennan, and artist Humberto Ramos.
