Marvel is making an animated movie with diverse superheroes

Skai Jackson, Tyler Posey & Dove Cameron Join New Animated Series 'Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors'

The new project will feature a diverse collection of characters, including a couple familiar names from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And though it's not the big screen, it's still pretty darn cool.

In a move they're calling a "brand-new, multi-platform animation franchise", Marvel just announced a feature-length film and six four-minute digital shorts dubbed Marvel Rising. Set to launch in 2018, Marvel Rising will begin with six, four-minute digital shorts created to introduce viewers to the world where a new wave of heroes are looking to make a name for themselves.

"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. Captain Marvel will also make an appearance, played by Kim Raver. Spider-Gwenl! All in the same team!

Milana Vayntrub, who will play Squirrel Girl on Marvel's live-action series "New Warriors", will also voice the animated character. Causing trouble for the team of Secret Warriors will be the evil Hala, voiced by Agents of SHIELD star Ming-Na Wen. The shorts will then be followed up by an animated feature titled "Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors".

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. She's joined by Kathreen Khavari as Muslim superhero Miss Marvel, Cierra Ramirez as the Latino-American LGBT hero America Chavez, and Kamil McFadden in the role of Patriot, who takes a cue from Captain America.

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

The comic giant posted a video announcement on Marvel HQ's YouTube page that stated "there is a character for every kind of Marvel fan out there", said Sana Amanat, director of content & character development at the company. "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".
