Casting for New Warriors has now been completed. Marvel has announced Monday the six official major cast members of Freeform's first live-action comedy featuring young adult heroes.
Marvel’s New Warriors is about six young people with powers living and working together. With powers and abilities on the opposite end of the spectrum of The Avengers, the New Warriors want to make a difference in the world … even if the world isn’t ready. Not quite super, not yet heroes,
The cast includes Milana Vayntrub, Derek Theler, Jeremy Tardy, Calum Worthy, Matthew Moy, and Kate Comer. You may read their official character descriptions below:
Vayntrub (This Is Us)
Vayntrub will take on Doreen Green — aka Squirrel Girl. Doreen is a totally empowered fangirl who has the incredible powers of a ... squirrel. Her greatest quality is her optimism and her best friend is a pet squirrel, Tippy Toe.
Theler (Baby Daddy)
Theler is Craig Hollis, aka Mister Immortal. Craig can't die ... or so he says. Although Craig’s superpower seems amazing, he hasn’t made use of it at all — he figures if he has all the time in the world to learn how to do anything heroic, what’s the rush?
Tardy (Dear White People)
Tardy takes on the role of Dwayne Taylor, aka Night Thrasher. Brilliant and noble and maybe a bit full of himself, Dwayne is a shameless self-promoter and entrepreneur who also deeply believes in justice.
Worthy (Austin & Ally, Cassandra French’s Finishing School)
Worthy will play Robbie Baldwin, aka Speedball. Robbie is an impulsive people-pleaser with a misplaced sense of confidence who throws kinetic balls of energy that are completely out of control.
Moy will take on the role of Zack Smith, aka Microbe. Zack is a shy hypochondriac who has the ability to talk to germs, which can tell him where you've been, what you ate and who you hung out with. It's impossible to keep secrets around him. Moy is fresh off his six-season run on CBS' recently canceled 2 Broke Girls, where he played diner owner Han.
Comer (The Comeback)
rounds out the cast as Deborah Fields, aka Debrii. Deborah is proud, funny and quick witted. Confidently out as a lesbian, Deborah is a low-level telekinetic — very low. Like, she-can-move-a-paper-cup low.
Marvel's New Warriors will premiere sometime in 2018 on Freeform.
