Character designs revealed for Marvel Rising

Last year, Marvel revealed an animated project meant to bring its younger heroes to the forefront. Marvel Rising consists of six, four-minute digital shorts and the feature-length animated film, Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors, which are both due to premiere later this year. The company has now revealed the look and cast of this new push.

Gwen Stacy aka Ghost-Spider (formerly Spider Gwen) voiced by Dove Cameron, is the star of the shorts. She’s a free-spirited teen who found her calling to be a superhero after being bitten by a radioactive spider and gaining spider-like powers. As Ghost-Spider, she aids those in need, but has to keep her alter-ego a secret from her father, Captain George Stacy, who sees Ghost-Spider as more of a menace than a hero.

She’ll be joined by Daisy Johnson aka Quake voiced by Chloe Bennet, Dante Pertuz aka Inferno voiced by Tyler Posey, Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel voiced by Kathreen Khavari, Doreen Green aka Squirrel Girl voiced by Milana Vayntrub, America Chavez voiced by Cierra Ramirez, ayshaun Lucas aka Patriot voiced by Kamil McFadden, and Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel voiced by Kim Raver. Then there’s the two real heroes, Lockjaw and Tippy Toe. Both voiced by Dee Bradley Baker, one’s Kamala’s trusty, teleporting mutt while the other is Doreen’s partner in crime and best squirrel friend.

According to a statement made by producer Eric Radomski at WonderCon, both the shorts and movie will have an anime aesthetic, aided via a partnership with a Japanese animations studio. Though, the character designs certainly look more in line with the current Marvel Animation you’d find on TV. Footage is expected to debut sometime this summer.

Marvel Rising is just one piece of the many components that make up the publisher’s superheroes in the world of animation. Though, it appears Deadpool won’t be joining that lineup anytime soon.
