'Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors' Animated Movie to Feature Diverse Superheroes

The move is meant to introduce the next generation of comic-entertainment-consuming humans to the next generation of diverse and inclusive Marvel heroes. And though it's not the big screen, it's still pretty darn cool.

Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors will be part of a larger multi-platform franchise that is set to launch next year with a series of animated shorts that will feature Spider-Gwen, who will be referred to as Ghost-Spider in this new series. But Captain Marvel aka Carol Danvers will not be voiced by Brie Larson, who will play the character in the movie; instead, Kim Raver will take on the role. They'll face off against the villain Hala (Ming-Na Wen). But while it will be two more years until we get the MCU's first solo female superhero movie in theaters, we'll be able to get a majority-woman team even sooner - even if it's in animated form. Spider-Gwenl! All in the same team!

Voice actors for the project include ABC's Agents of SHIELD's Ming-Na, Chloe Bennet and Dove Cameron, as well as Milana Vayntrub as Squirrel Girl, the role she was signed to play in the live-action New Warriors series now being shopped to outlets after Disney's Freeform passed on the project. While all of these characters may be familiar to hardcore Marvel fans, only Quake has made an appearance in mainstream entertainment as a main character in "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D". I recognize Tyler Posey too, who plays a Hispanic Teen Wolf on MTV's Teen Wolf, and will play the Hispanic superhero Inferno.

Marvel rolled out a spotlight featurette for the upcoming shorts and feature film, giving fans a look at the diverse voicecast. Heck, the animated versions of the characters even look like the actors themselves.
