The New Warriors are described as the junior version of "The Avengers"

Los Angeles: Marvel and ABC Studios are reportedly developing a new half-hour comedy series based on "New Warriors" that will put the spotlight on lesser-known comic book heroine Squirrel Girl.
The New Warriors are described as the junior version of "The Avengers". The superhero squad consists of teenagers, including Doreen Green (Squirrel Girl), a chipper young woman who has the proportional speed and strength of a squirrel as well as the ability to communicate with squirrels, reports
Other heroes to be featured on the TV show are still unknown, but in the comic books the other New Warriors members include Scarlet Spider, Speedball, Nova, Hummingbird and Justice. 
Till now, there is no actor attached to the comedy series, but the studios may consider to offer the lead role to Anna Kendrick. 
Kendrick earlier expressed the desire to play the character if it's brought to the big screen.
"My brother sent me a Squirrel Girl comic because he thinks I should. I don't know what Squirrel Girl does other than be half squirrel, but I could be half squirrel," she earlier said.
