Milana Vayntrub cast as Squirrel Girl for New Warriors.

I… don’t have an opinion, actually. I don’t have any knowledge of Milana Vayntrub as an actress, so she might be good. She might be bad.  She doesn’t look much like Doreen from the comics, though:


Squirrel Girl getting TV show: “New Warriors.”

Got tipped to this in the comments section by Constant Reader acat.  Too early to tell how good/bad it’s going to be, yet. Maybe it’ll be OK?

Marvel is expanding its relationship with Freeform and getting into the comedy space.

In a competitive situation with other cable and streaming outlets bidding, the younger-skewing Disney-owned cable network has handed out a straight-to-series order for New Warriors, the comic book powerhouse’s first 30-minute live-action comedy. Cougar Town and Scrubs alum Kevin Biegel is near a deal to pen the script and serve as showrunner on the comedy.

New Warriors is definitely going to have Squirrel Girl in it, and she’s being described as a ‘natural leader.’  That kind of implies that she’ll be running the team. Also: Freeform’s executives sound like they’re kind of pumped to have gotten this show, specifically. I’d rather that they tried to get the character right, and failed, than if they didn’t try at all. (more…)
