The cast of Marvel and Freeform's upcoming New Warriors TV series has been announced, with This is Us actress Milana Vayntrub leading the ensemble as Doreen Green, AKA Squirrel Girl, alongside Baby Daddy grad Derek Theler as Mister Immortal.

The pair will be joined by: Jeremy Tardy (Dear White People) as Night Thrasher; Calum Worthy (Austin and Ally) as Speedball; Matthew Moy (2 Broke Girls) as Microbe and Kate Comer (The Comeback) as Debrii.

Here is a statement from showrunner Kevin Biegel:


"I am thrilled beyond belief to be working with this incredible group of actors. They are funny, sincere, eager, charming and perfectly embody these characters. It'll be a blast and an honor to create this show with each of them."

You may recall that Stranger Things breakout Shannon Purser (Barb) campaigned to play Squirrel Girl a while back, and she was actually in the running for the role along with Parenthood actress Mae Whitman who is also a huge fan of the character.

You'll find pics of the cast along with full character description for each of The New Warriors over at THR.

Holy cow, the girl from those cell phone commercials. Haha. That's actually a pretty solid cast.

But Loeb may be entering a slump lately, so who knows how it will turn out.

This Is Us means nothing to me... that's the girl from the AT&T commercials. Nice choice.

Squirrel Girl's defining trait is that she's adorkable. Nailed it.

@Spock0Clock - I'm not too familiar with Squirrel Girl. Do people like her? From what I've seen her comics seem to be nothing more than political vehicles

I wish Firestar and Justice were on this show, but I assume FOX probably owns both of them.
