Marvel’s TV adaptation of New Warriors has found its cast, and the Internet is pleased. Why? Because news that the show has been cast also means that Squirrel Girl has been cast. Say hello to Milana Vayntrub, the face of Doreen Green, aka Squirrel Girl.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you probably know Milana as Lily, the cute and bubbly AT&T girl that seems to have taken the Internet by storm. She’ll be joined in the 10-episode first season by Derek Theler (Baby Daddy) as Mr. Immortal. The rest of the New Warriors are filled out with Jeremy Tardy (Dear White People) as Night Thrasher, Calum Worthy (Austin & Ally) as Speedball, Matthew Moy (2 Broke Girls) as Microbe, and Kate Comer (The Comeback) as Debrii.
New Warriors airs in 2018.
