Marvel’s upcoming animated series Marvel Rising will follow as a group of young superheroes including Ms Marvel, Squirrel Girl and Spider-Gwen (AKA Ghost Spider) come together to form a next generation team.
Ahead of San Diego Comic-Con this week, the first trailer for complimentary series of web shorts Marvel Rising: Initiation has dropped, and it has a few clues about what to expect from the show.
In addition to introducing you to a few of Marvel Rising’s starring characters, the trailer also reveals that, at least at the very beginning, Ms Marvel and Squirrel Girl will be on the search for Ghost Spider, who’s believed to be involved in the murder of a friend.
As Marvel’s spider-people are wont to do, Gwen denies the allegations and takes her fellow vigilantes on, only to ultimately be taken down by Tippy-Toe the squirrel.
Aesthetically, Marvel Rising bears a lot of resemblance to Marvel’s previous animated shows such as Avengers: Assemble and Ultimate Spider-Man, which bodes well for the series, and it has a solid cast including Chloe Bennett, reprising her role as Quake, and Kathreen Khavari as Kamala.
Marvel Rising’s purportedly a major part of Marvel’s future plans for animation, so if you’re into keeping tabs on just what the studio’s been up to recently, you should probably start checking for the web series when it premieres on August 13.
