Marvel Announces New Animated Project MARVEL RISING: SECRET WARRIORS

Marvel Studios has some big plans in store for the MCU post Avengers: Infinity War that will shake up the cinematic universe as we know it, and the animated wing of Marvel is keeping pace. Just announced today were plans for a new forward-looking franchise for Marvel, one that will see less familiar but still fan-favorite characters coming into their own in a big way. Launching in 2018, the next generation of Marvel heroes will appear in six four-minute shorts, followed by the animated feature Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors next year.

Buzzfeed has the breakdown for the cast, crew, characters, and timeline for the ambitious project, and it’s all quite impressive. The multi-platform approach will start off with shorts, each focusing on Gwen Stacy a.k.a. Spider-Gwen going by her new moniker, Ghost Spider; the feature film will arrive later. Marvel’s Director of Content and Character Development Sana Amanat said of the series and the film, “It came out of a desire to be able to tell stories about characters that we think are the next great heroes of the Marvel Universe. I think it’s incredibly important that we tell young women and young girls that they have this incredible power within themselves, and that they have heroes out there [who] … they can look up to, especially in these times.” Be sure to head over to Buzzfeed (or don’t, Buzzfeed is the worst) for more from the cast and crew.
