Dove Cameron Talks 'Marvel Rising' Ahead of Comic Con Panel This Week

Dove Cameron just wrapped up filming on Descendants 3, and now, she’s headed to the 2018 San Diego Comic Con!

The 22-year-old actress will be on a panel for her upcoming animated series, Marvel Rising, along with co-stars Chloe Bennet, Milana Vayntrub, Kathreen Khavari, and Kamil McFadden.

Marvel Rising centers on teenage superhero Ghost-Spider (Cameron), who is on the run from the law after being framed for her friend’s murder. Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Quake, and Patriot are dispatched to bring her in, before they all find themselves teaming up to fight a threat no one had expected.

“I see Ghost-Spider as a strong, rough-and-tumble, feminine energy who can face any challenge and become whatever she needs to be to solve the issue in front of her,” Dove shared with EW of her character.

She continues, “She’s definitely got a sense of humor, and a sass and a lightness to her, but she’s also got a lot of darkness to her, because of her secret that she keeps and her family issues.”

“I think Ghost-Spider deals with a few more issues than her male counterparts, not unlike most young women who deal with some different issues than their male counterparts in normal, everyday life. Some of these might be being underestimated by foes, expectations of what a girl or woman should be, the pressures to shatter those expectations, or the social pressures of the male-dominant job title.”

The Marvel Rising panel will take place on Thursday, July 19th @ 3:15 p.m. PT in Room 6DE.

The Marvel Rising: Initiation shorts will premiere back-to-back on August 13th on Disney XD, with the Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors TV movie to follow in the fall.
