The Marvel Cinematic Universe has seized the opportunity on Disney+ to expand characters and storytelling. As a result, multiple heroes such as Moon Knight and She-Hulk were introduced while also introducing brand new genres such as comedy and animation to the franchise. Not only was this an eye opener for fans and how many avenues this universe could take, it also revealed the possibilities in which these stories could be told.
One of the most unlikely genres that Marvel Studios might not touch would be reality television. While it may seem realistic, the often-scheduled dramas that appear on these shows have always been present, but have rarely achieved mainstream popularity compared to other dramas. However, there were selected successes such Jersey Shore who have shown how effective reality TV can be. However, there is one team that could bring a similar level of drama and entertainment to the MCU via reality TV – The New Warriors.
New Warriors is the MCU’s perfect entry into reality TV
In the comics, the New Warriors were a ragtag group of young heroes who banded together to fight crime. Unlike the Avengers, this team often faced minor threats. However, the team members possessed a variety of powers that showed the potential of the group. Some of the team’s young heroes, like Nova and Firestar, would eventually rise even higher and have changed significantly since their time on the team. But how could reality TV work for the New Warriors?
At the beginning of civil war Event by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven, a super villain named Nitro was hunted by the New Warriors. But these heroes were completely unprepared for a man who could blow himself up and rebuild. As a result, he did just that alongside an elementary school, sparking the Superhuman Registration Act and the subsequent battles that took place afterward. But the New Warriors did so because they were filming a reality TV show to try and get more exposure.
How could reality TV affect the MCU?
In view of civil war had already taken place, the secret to making this series feel real was to show the drama, humor, and struggle that comes with trying to be a big-name hero in a world that’s growing Pop up. As a result, each episode could focus on meeting new heroes and maybe even bringing back Squirrel Girl from the now-canceled one New warriors TV series. It could also be a chance to organize future events, much like current shows have done. But what this series could do that others haven’t is play up the team’s youthful arrogance and force audiences to like them by showing more layers of their identities.
By launching the series in the traditional sense, audiences would be picking their favorites while immersing themselves in the usual reality TV antics. But with each episode, these heroes have their own problems and more of them surface. In the end, the series could take a more mature approach and result in a full-scale MCU event that has the same impact as Fury and Hill enduring The Blip in real-time. The New Warriors are a team that could now rival other young teams on television and help show the versatility of Marvel Studios, using a classic storytelling style to take them to new heights.
