Marvel Television was an ambitious branch that for years was in charge of developing series for comic book characters who did not have the full potential to jump to the big screen. New Warriors it became one of those projects scrapped by the company, with only one pilot filmed and then scorned by the higher ups.

Originally known as Squirrel Girl, this character was born in Marvel comics to introduce more familiar stories, leaving aside the drama and violence of regular publications. The cheerful Doreen Green first appeared in Marvel Super-Heroes vol. 2, # 8 in 1992, and soon after she got her own adventures, often linked to the Avengers. Among her powers we find the ability to communicate with squirrels, superhuman agility, senses and strength, a tender and huge prehensile tail, and more, resulting in a compact superhero, with just the right touch of tenderness, very determined to do good. in the world.
According to the now deleted posts from Kevin Biegel on Twitter, New Warriors was canceled by the decision of a single executive at Marvel Television, who called the project “too gay.” The truth is New Warriors It was a proudly LGBT show and fans are desperately fighting to bring it back to life. On the other hand, the executive who had the final word on the pilot was fired long ago, and although the identity was not revealed at some point, there are few who suspect Ike Perlmutter and Jeph loeb.

Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings is currently on the billboard – 95%, a film that introduces the MCU’s first great Asian Avenger; Eternals and Spider-Man: No Road Home are also on the way, and it is the latter that aims to become the most successful release of all of 2021. The third installment of Spider-Man in the MCU is highly anticipated by the public, with millions of fans speculating about what we will see: a supposedly incredible display about the reaches of the multiverse on the big screen. Could it be possible for Marvel Studios to break its previous records?
