Fans just got a never-before-seen look at Milana Vayntrub in her costume from her cancelled show appearance as Squirrel Girl in the greater Marvel Universe.

Before a two-season run for Cloak & Dagger (2018-2019) on Freeform, Marvel Television was planning a New Warriors series for a 2018 debut, which would have starred Vayntrub as the first-ever live-action take on Doreen Green/Squirrel Girl.

Vayntrub's acrobatic and powerful heroine would have teamed up with other small-town heroes handling their own personal struggles and trying to find a home, featuring powers like immortality, kinetic energy, communication with germs, and even telekinesis.

Although a pilot for New Warriors was filmed in Summer 2017, Freeform ultimately passed on picking it up for a full-season order for its 2018 series slate. Marvel Television was unsuccessful in its attempts to convince another Disney-owned network to pick up New Warriors, and the series pilot remains unaired.

Actress Milana Vayntrub shared a video on TikTok highlighting some of the looks that she was set to use for her role as Squirrel Girl in Freeform's cancelled New Warriors series from Marvel Television.

Along with the video of the pictures, Vayntrub included the caption "Yeah. I still think about her."

Wearing a pair of overall jeans and a red striped t-shirt, the description for this Vayntrub outfit teased the first day at a new house, potentially seeing Squirrel Girl settle into a new area:

Wearing a white top and a blue jacket on top of a short blue skirt, this look appears to be for a more casual encounter for Doreen drinking beer with her friends:

Also included is an outfit very reminiscent of Squirrel Girl's classic look from Marvel Comics, featuring a brown jacket, white striped shirt, squirrel ears, and beige shorts as she looks to head into battle:

Lastly, Vayntrub is seen wearing jeans and a blue t-shirt that reads "I did my best," although it's actually only a placeholder that's meant to say "You Are Awesome" as she and her friends watch TV:

Will Milana Vayntrub Ever Play Squirrel Girl?

While there are no reports or rumors pointing to Squirrel Girl's inclusion in any future MCU entries, Milana Vayntrub's enthusiasm for the role hasn't seemed to wane over recent years.

In fact, she provided the voice for Doreen Green in two different animated Marvel Rising films in 2018 before another handful of credits in 2019, and she seems to still be open to the idea of reprising the role in a larger capacity.

For the time being, not only is Marvel looking to bring a jam-packed slate of projects to both Phase 5 and Phase 6, but there are also concerns that the overall slate will face significant delays due to the ongoing writers' and actors' strikes.

But should the hero be brought into play later on in the MCU's expansive saga, many would likely show plenty of support for Vayntrub should she want to reprise the role on the big or small screen.
