Iman Vellani is shown to be the future of the MCU as she has reflected her character’s prowess in The Marvels. Kamala Khan a.k.a. Ms. Marvel follows the legacy of Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury as she went on to recruit Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop who appeared in Disney + show Hawkeye as she was “putting together a team” and she wanted Kate to be a part of it. It’s likely a young Avengers initiative.

Being a Marvel comic book fan, Vellani has been blessed with an enormous amount of MCU knowledge and she can give a hard time to even Marvel Boss Kevin Feige. But for now, she won’t bother the Marvel Boss, not before Ms. Marvel season 2. 

“I’m trying not to give him a hard time right now until I get [Ms. Marvel] season two, and then maybe I’ll email him another 72 questions. Yeah, I’m taking it easy. If he says the MCU is [Earth-] 616, I’ll let him believe that,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.

But she is optimistic about the second season of the show. “I am patient, and honestly, I hope all the love that Kamala is getting from this movie inspires people to be more vocal about wanting a season two,” she told the outlet. Now, Fans have reacted to Kamala Khan’s The Marvels role as Vellani lived her role.

Vellani has secured her place in the MCU, at least the post-credit hilarious recruit of the Young Avengers is supportive of that. But the 21-year-old Canadian actor has been in the buzz, most recently, for her remarks on Feige. Fans took to social platforms to express their thoughts.

Fans showered love on Vellani for the innate performance she has suited up to Marvel in the MCU. Her role, as fans conceived, is fresh and hilarious with comic relief. Now being one of the founding members of the Young Avengers initiative, she is destined to bring up some energy to the potential group of young heroes that MCU has introduced in their previous projects over time.
