Sometimes life can feel hard and you feel like there’s not light at the end of the tunnel.

But fear not, dreams do come true.

Take gorgeous Derek Theler, star of TV’s Baby Daddy, for example.


A couple of years ago he told GuysLikeU’s Christian Guiltenane that he dreamt of becoming part of a superhero franchise.

“I want to play a superhero,” he gushed. “That’s why I came to Hollywood.

“When Marvel started making moves I wanted to be part of that!

“I’m really excited about the next move and I hope I get the opportunity to wear a cape.

“It’s every boy’s dream. And I can’t wait to do it.”

That was back in 2015. Now in 2017, the 6foot 5 fella has revealed that he has indeed landed a role in a Marvel action adventure made for TV.

He has been lined up to play Mister Immortal in the new Freeform series Marvel’s New Warriors.

He will appear alongside Milana Vayntrub (This Is Us) who will play Squirrel Girl.

The show will follow six super-powered young adults as they learn to cope with their abilities while navigating adulthood!

Sounds like a hoot right?

New Warriors is set to launch in 2018.

It is Freeform’s second Marvel series and joins Cloak and Dagger at the Disney-owned network.

Joining Vayntrub and Theler are Jeremy Tardy as Night Thrasher, Calum Worthy as Speedball, Matthew Moy as Microbe and Kate Comer as Debrii.

But, more importantly, what you want to know is what does this Mister Immortal look like!


Wow! With his body we cannot wait to see Derek in that outfit!
