Every MCU 2018 Project Ranked By Anticipation

10. New Warriors: Season 1

Marvel

Of all the projects on this list, the first season of New Warriors is the only thing currently in a bit of a limbo. According to THR, its pilot was a huge success in the eyes of executives, but thanks to a packed schedule on Freeform - where it was originally planned to air - the show had to be kicked back, forcing Marvel to shop it around so that it can find a home and still air in 2018.

Where it's going to land is anyone's guess for now, but the mere fact it even exists is something to get excited about. In terms of plot, all we have is vague: A group of superpowered individuals come together to form the New Warriors, their own Avengers-esque group, albeit on a much smaller scale. But considering the group has been around in comics for nearly three decades now, there's a wealth of material to be mined for the season's full narrative.

Despite that lack of story specifics, we do know the roster we'll be seeing and who will be playing them, with Milana Vayntrub starring as Squirrel Girl, Derek Tholer as Mister Immortal, Jeremy Tardy as Night Thrasher, Matthew Moy as Microbe, Kate Comer as Debrii, and Calum Worthy as Speedball, while the show itself is being run by Scrubs vet and Cougar Town co-creator Kevin Biegel. Just by virtue of its cast of characters, New Warriors has every opportunity to be an absolute blast, and hopefully fans learn sooner than later where it's ending up so we can start marking our calendars for its premiere.
