MARVEL TELEVISION AND FREEFORM SET CAST FOR 'MARVEL'S NEW WARRIORS'

Ensemble Cast Features Milana Vayntrub, Derek Theler, Jeremy Tardy, Calum Worthy, Matthew Moy and Kate Comer

Marvel Television, Freeform and ABC Signature Studios today have completed casting for "Marvel's New Warriors," their previously announced new comedic live-action adaptation of the popular Marvel comic featuring young adult heroes. "Marvel's New Warriors" marks Marvel's first foray into comedy for a live-action television series slated to debut in 2018 on Freeform, Disney's young adult television and streaming network.

Not quite super, not yet heroes, "Marvel's New Warriors" features six young people learning to cope with their abilities in a world where bad guys can be as terrifying as bad dates.

Meet your New Warriors:

Milana Vayntrub ("This Is Us," "Silicon Valley") as Doreen Green a.k.a 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.

Derek Theler ("Baby Daddy") as Craig Hollis a.k.a 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?

Jeremy Tardy ("Dear White People," "Ten Days in the Valley) as Dwayne Taylor a.k.a 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.

Calum Worthy ("Austin & Ally," "Cassandra French's Finishing School") as Robbie Baldwin a.k.a 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.

Matthew Moy ("2 Broke Girls, "Steven Universe") as Zack Smith a.k.a. Microbe

Zack is a shy hypochondriac whose ability is that he can talk to germs that tell him where you've been, what you ate and with whom you've hung out. It's impossible to keep secrets around him.

Kate Comer ("Hello My Name is Doris," "The Comeback") as Deborah Fields a.k.a. Debrii

Deborah is proud, funny and quick-witted. A low-level telekinetic, very low like she can move a paper cup.

"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," said series executive producer and showrunner Kevin Biegel.

"We're so lucky to have assembled such a diverse and incredibly talented cast," said executive producer Jeph Loeb. "We can't wait for the fans to see what's in store when we unleash these iconic characters into the world!"

"At Freeform, we are committed to finding distinct and entertaining characters that our audience can enjoy and relate to," said Elizabeth Boykewich, senior vice president, Casting and Talent, Freeform. "We are excited to be working with Marvel Television to bring these fiercely average superheroes to life and watch them take on the world."

The series is co-produced by Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios. Kevin Biegel ("Cougar Town," "Enlisted") will serve as showrunner and executive producer, with Marvel's Jeph Loeb ("Marvel's The Defenders," "Marvel's Punisher") and Jim Chory ("Marvel's The Punisher," "Marvel's Inhumans") as executive producers.
