Some other cast members are Zenobia Shroff and Mohan Kapur as Kamala’s parents, Aramis Knight, Rish Shah, Matt Lintz and Saagar Shaikh.

Disney+ Reveals Synopsis For Ms. Marvel
On Friday, we witnessed the ever-so-great Disney+ Day and the synopsis announcement came as a part of it. Even though the show was slated for a late 2021 release, it has been pushed to 2022 and revolves around a teenager who looks up to a particular Avenger. Read the official synopsis below:
“Ms. Marvel introduces Kamala Khan–a 16-year-old Pakistani American from Jersey City. An aspiring artist, an avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, she is a huge fan of the Avengers—and one in particular, Captain Marvel. But Kamala has always struggled to find her place in the world—that is until she gets superpowers like the heroes she’s always looked up to.”
One thing that we must notice is that the show will really dwell on Captain Marvel’s influence on Kamala Khan. The show is set to directly lead into the 2023 movie The Marvels. The movie will feature Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, Iman Vellani as Ms. Marvel, and WandaVision actor Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau.

The synopsis further reads that the show is directed by executive producers Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, Meera Menon and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy. Moreover, the executive producer Bisha K. Ali is also serving as the show’s head writer. Back in August, Vellani discussed her role in an interview with Variety. She said:
“The fact that the show is being made and they’re including this character in the MCU is what’s important. I don’t really have to go out of my way and talk about being a Muslim and being Pakistani – it all comes out in the show. People seeing a person like me involved in a project as big as this is, I think, inspiring enough.”
Right now, it’s unclear whether Brie Larson will reprise her role in the Disney+ series. Are you excited about Ms. Marvel? Let us know in the comments below!
