"No matter where you go, there you are."


Squirrel Girl, Ms. Marvel and Spider-Gwen feature in the trailer for Marvel Rising: Initiation


Marvel Rising: Initiation centers on Ghost-Spider, aka Spider-Gwen (voiced by Dove Cameron), on the run from authorities, who believe she is responsible for her best friend’s murder. Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Quake and Patriot are all tasked with apprehending Ghost-Spider and bringing her in for questioning.

If you’re attending San Diego Comic-Con this week, you can catch the “Marvel Rising” panel on Thursday, July 19, at 3:15 PM – 4:15 PM in Room 6DE.

Marvel Rising brings together the next generation of Marvel Super Heroes for the next generation of Marvel fans. This is your chance to be among the first to see a sneak peek of this group of powered teens and their adventures that are full of heart, action, comedy, and powerful messages for every kind of Marvel fan. Join Quake Chloe Bennet (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”, “Nashville”), Squirrel Girl Milana Vayntrub (“This Is Us”, “Silicon Valley”), Ms. Marvel Kathreen Khavari (“Big Little Lies”, “Marvel’s Avengers”), Patriot Kamil McFadden (“K.C. Undercover”, “Grown Ups 2”), Mairghread Scott (Writer,Marvel Rising), Cort Lane (SVP, Animation and Family Entertainment), Marsha Griffin (VP, Animation Current Series and Development), and Sana Amanat (VP, Content and Character Development) as well as additional surprise guests for an action-packed panel that will showcase the first look of the animated shorts, special announcements, and so much more.

Be sure to catch Marvel Rising: Initiation when it debuts on Disney XD on August 13 and when the full-length animated feature Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors debuts on Disney Channel later this fall.

Milana Vayntrub is also set to be playing a live-action version of Squirrel Girl in The New Warriors TV show. However, the half-hour scripted comedy, picked up straight to series at Freeform in April, will no longer air on the younger-skewing, Disney-owned cable network. Instead, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Marvel will shop the live-action comedy to other outlets. Sources say there has been some talk that the 10-episode series from Kevin Biegel (Enlisted) could be taken to Disney’s forthcoming subscription streaming service, though insiders stress that’s a long shot.
