Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

MarvinHF

Marvin is portrayed by Peter Sudarso, better known for portraying Preston Tien, Ninja Steel Blue of Power Rangers Ninja Steel.

Notes

  • Marvin's character itself brings several references to Super Sentai.
    • His name "Marv" is a reference to Captain Marvelous/Gokai Red, who Peter based off of since it's one of his favorite Sentai Red Rangers.[2]
      • Furthering the reference, Jack calls Marvin "Marvelous Marvy". "Marvy" is a reference to Basco's nickname for Marvelous "Marvy-Chan".
    • Both Marvin and his brother Joe are from the planet Kaien, the homeworld of Lucky/ShishiRed. They also share the lion motif, and to a lesser degree the fire motif.
  • Marvin and Joe Shih are the first sibling Ranger characters to be played by actors who are siblings in real life.

Chloe Ashford

Both Marvin and Chloe joined Time Force to find their missing family members.

Jack Thomas

Marv and Jack have a shaky relationship rattled by distrust. Prior to the events of the story, Marv passed himself off as his brother to infiltrate Time Force in order to find out what happened to him. Jack discovered this and ensured that Marv's facade would not continue, although Marv was allowed to start from the bottom as a student. Jack trusts Jen's judgement in assigning the leadership position to Marv, though he still remains wary, quick to bring up their history as a reminder of what happens to those who make bad decisions.

Joe Shih

Joe is Marv's older brother. Joe was missing for a long time. When Joe appeared (not just an illusion, as he was two episodes prior to his flesh and blood appearence) Marv threw a rock at him, upset about him being gone for so long. After saving Marv from the Alliance Ship Joe had to leave again but Marv was glad that his brother is alive.
