Marvel has released a new trailer for the company’s upcoming movie Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors. The film is a follow-up to the animated web series Marvel Rising: Initiation, which saw Ms. Marvel and Squirrel Girl team up, gave us new versions of Patriot and Quake, and introduced Spider-Gwen under her official Ghost-Spider alias.
Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors is a retelling of the second Secret Warriors comic series, replacing several of the team’s members with new teenage heroes who have seen a recent surge in popularity. The new team is composed of Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Patriot, Quake, Inferno, and Miss America. Captain Marvel brings the group of young heroes together and acts as their inspiration. Ghost-Spider has been prominent in the Marvel Rising series, but Secret Wars‘ recent trailer suggests she won’t have a major role in the movie.
Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel is a Captain Marvel fangirl who one day gains the power to stretch her body in any way, which she calls “embiggening.” Doreen Green aka Squirrel Girl is a computer expert who possesses the senses of a squirrel, and can also communicate with squirrels and climb as they do. Rayshaun Lucas aka Patriot is a SHIELD agent trained by Captain America, who possess a shield that can extend into a hovercraft. Another SHIELD agent, Daisy Johnson aka Quake can produce vibrational waves of various strength to rattle objects apart, from simple locks to whole mountains. Dante Pertuz aka Inferno can set his heat-resistant skin on fire and then wield the flames as a weapon. America Chavez aka Miss America has superhuman strength, speed, and durability, and can also fly and break holes in the multiverse to visit other realities. Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel, possibly the most powerful member of the Avengers, possesses close to a dozen abilities, the most notable of which are flight at near light speed, super strength, a precognitive sixth sense, and energy absorption.
Despite several connections to other TV series–such as Chloe Bennet voicing Quake, the character she plays on Agents of SHIELD, and Milana Vayntrub voicing Squirrel Girl, the character she plays on New Warriors—Secret Warriors is not a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors premiers on Disney Channel and Disney XD on September 30 at 10:00 PM PT/ET.
