Marvel Animation is gearing up to release the animated feature-length film Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors sometime this year. It’s part of the larger Marvel Rising franchise initiative looking to introduce a new spin on an animated Marvel Universe, but focused on the younger generation of superheroes on the original comics.
While no exact dates have been given yet for when Marvel Rising will kick off, we’ll instead leave you with this list of the various Marvel heroes that’ll be part of this film’s version of the Secret Warriors super-team. We’ll also include their respective voice talent plus relevant extra info.
- Dove Cameron as Gwen Stacy, aka Spider-Gwen/Ghost Spider – based on an alternate-universe version of Peter Parker/Spider-Man’s late girlfriend, who got the spider-powers rather than her world’s version of Peter; this Gwen apparently still lives in this particular Marvel animated universe
- Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson, aka Quake – Bennet already portrays Daisy/Quake, also named Skye, on the ABC live-action series Agents of SHIELD; but while there she’s already a young adult, here she’s much younger
- Tyler Posey as Dante Pertuz, aka Inferno – one of the first Inhuman descendants in the regular world to awaken his powers outside the Inhuman homeland of Attilan
- Kathreen Khavari as Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel – one of the most famous recent-generation Marvel characters in comics, a Pakistani-American high-schooler with Inhuman powers hailed as a positive representation of a devout Muslim in America
- Milana Vayntrub as Doreen Green, aka Squirrel Girl – another famous “young” Marvel hero, whose squirrel-like characteristics (teeth, tail) and ability to communicate with them is strong enough to fight (and beat!) high-profile super-villains like Doctor Doom
- Cierra Ramirez as “Ms.” America Chavez – the first Latina-American and LGBTQ character to headline an ongoing Marvel Comics title series than ran 2017-2018; comes from an alternate dimension with the power to travel across dimensions
- Kamil McFadden as Rayshaun Lucas, aka Patriot – the third Marvel hero to carry the name (the original during World War II and the previous – second – one being introduced only in 2005)
This time is mentored and led by veteran heroine and government agent Carol Danvers (Kim Raver), aka Captain Marvel (and formerly the original Ms. Marvel).
