Marvel Studios President Explains The Reason For Changing Ms. Marvel’s Powers
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige in an interview explained why Kamala Khan’s powers changed in the MCU.
He said, “We adapt the comics; it’s not an exact translation. [Kamala] came about in a very specific time within the comic-book continuity. She is now coming into a very specific time within the MCU continuity. And those two things didn’t match. What we will learn about where those powers come from, and how they come about, is specific to the MCU.”
He also explained about that how Kamala’s new powers will play an important role in the MCU saying, “It taps into the future of her story as it connects to her other friends that she will meet in the upcoming film The Marvels. She’s interested in knowing, ‘Great, does that mean I’m an Asgardian? Did I get hit with gamma rays?’ No, it’s seemingly none of those things. It goes to her past and her heritage and lineage.”
Ms. Marvel will premiere on Disney+ on June 8.
