There will be six four-minute shorts, which will feature Ghost-Spider, leading up to the film.

With "Marvel Rising", the next generation of Marvel heroes have arrived. The move is meant to introduce the next generation of comic-entertainment-consuming humans to the next generation of diverse and inclusive Marvel heroes. It came out of a desire to be able to tell stories about characters that we think are the next great heroes of the Marvel Universe.

BuzzFeed confirmed Marvel Television is working on a new animated franchise called Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors, and it'll feature a diverse collection of fan-favorites including Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, America Chavez, and more.

Over the past 10 years or so, Marvel has exploded in popularity making Iron Man, Captain America and many others household names once again.

Marvel rolled out a spotlight featurette for the upcoming shorts and feature film, giving fans a look at the diverse voicecast. While all of these characters may be familiar to hardcore Marvel fans, only Quake has made an appearance in mainstream entertainment as a main character in "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D". Milana Vayntrub is Squirrel Girl. BooBoo Stewart (Exile), Skai JacksFron (Gloria "Glory" Grant), Kim Raver (Captain Marvel), Steven Weber (Captain George Stacy), Dee Bradley Baker (Lockjaw & Tippy Toe), and Ming-Na Wen (Hala) are also set to star.

It seems worth noting that Marvel Entertainment hired actors who could also play these characters in a live-action format. Ming-Na Wen will be Hela, the villain of Thor: Ragnarok, and Kathleen Khavari will voice Ms. Marvel again like she now does in Avengers: Secret Wars.

In a Marvel video released this morning, executive producer Cort Lane said, "There are superhero stories, then there are Marvel superhero stories, which are very much about characters".
