Ms. Marvel, the second of Marvel’s Disney+ series to launch this year and the seventh overall, arrives hot on the heels of summer to get the season off to a good start. Iman Vellani will star in the eight-episode series as Kamala Khan, a young Pakistani-American girl living in Jersey City who discovers she has abilities out of nowhere and must learn to deal with them in order to escape disaster.
The first two episodes of the upcoming Disney+ series Ms. Marvel, starring 19-year-old newbie Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan, one of the most recent creations of comic book veterans G. Willow Wilson, Sana Amanat, Adrian Alphona, and Jamie McKelvie, were just released to the public. Fans’ reactions to the episodes began to surface online, giving viewers an idea of what to anticipate from Marvel Studios’ next project.
Iman Vellani is charismatic, compelling & endearing
The first online reactions to this masterpiece have emerged, and fans are enjoying her MCU debut. For years, Kamala Khan has been a popular figure, and she’s now getting her own series. The first two episodes of the Marvel series were provided to several critics and media figures. They appreciated Iman Vellani for bringing Kamala to life on screen in their comments. The creative team has also been given a lot of credit for making Jersey City in the MCU feel a lot more lively than other of the settings we’ve seen in Disney+ episodes so far.
Marvel’s Kevin Feige praised Iman Vellani earlier this month, comparing her to Spider-Man actor Tom Holland and admitting that she, too, is a major fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “She carries this Unabomber notebook with her everywhere, with her scribbles and ideas. And why wouldn’t we want to hear them? Not just because she’s playing the lead… she’d be commenting on the show online,” Fiege said.
Given below are some of the best reactions that surely will prove this miniseries is worth watching.
Had a chance to watch #MsMarvel Ep 1-2 for @FandomWire! While it seems targeted at a younger audience, it's charming & enjoyable so far. Characters are relatable. There isn't much action yet, but its lead's charisma keeps things flowing. Interested to see what happens next!

I watched the first 2 episodes of #MsMarvel. It's so closely linked to the #MCU, yet unbelievably different from what they typically put out. It's creative, whimsical and the truest depiction of teenaged life in the shared universe.#MarvelStudios @FandomWire @CinemaStubs pic.twitter.com/HU83bLt0Wh

First 2 episodes of #MsMarvel leave no doubt about the type of show this is. It's a show for those of us who grew up watching the #MCU and fantasized about having powers of our own. It's a coming of age story that works as a love letter to the genre.#MarvelStudios #DisneyPlus pic.twitter.com/d4HUmETJiw

I know everyone says this every time but #MsMarvel really is the best MCU TV series we've had. It's fresh, new, and interested me in ways that the rest of Phase 4 just hasn't.
Kamala Khan? More like Kamala Can… we have more of this! pic.twitter.com/7wW2rgMj87

Iman Vellani is marvelous as young Kamala Khan aka #MsMarvel. The first 2 episodes are a fun, witty & colorful introduction to her imaginative teenage coming-of-age story. Style & tone reminded me of Mitchells Vs. The Machines. So far, so good. Looking forward to the rest of it. pic.twitter.com/mnVMayHMDK
