It looks like Squirrel Girl is finally getting the live-action treatment so many fans have been asking for. TV Line reports Marvel and ABC Studios are developing a New Warriors comedy series that will focus mostly on the heroine.
Apparently, the show, which will be offered in 30-minute episodes, is being shopped around to cable and streaming outlets. TV Line added:
Described as the junior version of The Avengers, the New Warriors are a superhero squad made up of teenagers, one of whom would include Doreen Green (aka Squirrel Girl). For the record, SG can do more than just communicate with the world’s vast squirrel population; she also possesses super-speed and strength.
In the comics, Squirrel Girl at one point serves as the nanny to Danielle Cage, the daughter of Luke Cage and Jessica Jones.
Marvel has a few other shows currently cooking in the pipeline, including a show based on the Runaways. This is yet another example of the studio’s diverse library of content perfect for live-action.
With Marvel and ABC Studios currently shopping the project around, it’ll probably be a while before this gets released (if at all). We’ll keep tabs on this one as it develops.
