Marvel Announces Animated Film with Super Diverse Cast

Move over Avengers, there's a new group of heroes about to step into the spotlight to make a name for themselves! And though it's not the big screen, it's still pretty darn cool.

BuzzFeed confirmed Marvel Television is working on a new animated franchise called Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors, and it'll feature a diverse collection of fan-favorites including Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, America Chavez, and more.

Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors features an all-star voice cast which includes Kathleen Khavari as Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel, Milana Vayntrub as Doreen Green/Squirrel Girl, Dove Cameron as Gwen Stacy/Ghost Spider, Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson/Quake, Kamil McFadden as Rayshaun Lucas/Patriot, Tyler Posey as Dante Pertuz/Inferno, Cierra Ramirez as America Chavez/Miss America, Dee Bradley Baker as Lockjaw/Tippy Toe, Ming-Na Wen as Hala the Accuser, Booboo Stewart as Victor Kohl/Exile and Kim Raver as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel.

"Marvel characters are so relatable because they live in our world and face the same challenges we do", said Cort Lane, Marvel's Senior Vice President of Animation & Family Entertainment.

A behind-the-scenes featurette follows the making of the feature film, which is led by Captain Marvel, soon to get her own live-action solo movie starring Brie Larson. Spider-Gwenl! All in the same team! 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". In fact, each character here is cast with a corresponding voice actor of the same ethnicity - which is a miracle in an age when whitewashing still runs rampant.

Sana Amanat, Marvel's Director of Content and Character Development, stated, "This project is unlike anything we've done before-from featuring the rising and fan-favourite stars of the Marvel Universe, to a visually distinct animation style, this is a groundbreaking animated event".

It's a dream come true for Marvel fans who are growing tired of solo movies starring white men named Chris, and for fans of more inclusive Marvel comic book runs.

"This feature [film] is an evolution of all the great characters that people have come to love".
