Marvel finally released the trailer for the much-awaited live-action series ‘Ms. Marvel‘ and fans are psyched. After the announcement of the Moon Knight series, this comes as a balancing factor with its lighthearted fun. According to the new Ms. Marvel trailer though, the hero’s origin story and powers will most likely differ considerably from the original source material, and the fans have many mixed views about this.
With Ms. Marvel soon joining the ranks of other superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), we have a lot to look forward to. And Hollywood star Mark Ruffalo had a few words to say about this. He took to Twitter to welcome this new hero. “Marvel breaks new ground! Love you, @Marvel for reflecting the world we live in. Welcome to the family, Kamala!”, the actor tweeted.

This heartwarming reaction came after the new look at the Pakistani-American superhero, known as Kamala Khan in the comics. The character is played by Iman Vellani in the upcoming show. Many, including the Hulk-actor Mark Ruffalo, believe that as the first MCU live-action adaptation of the popular Pakistani-American character, the show has broken many barriers for Marvel.
Fans get a look at Kamala Khan’s life, who is an avid fan of Superheroes, particularly Captain Marvel and gains the ability to harness cosmic energy, becoming one herself in the process. While Ms. Marvel is living the life she’s always dreamt of, she still has to balance her roles as a superhero and a teenager. And with this show, we will most likely see her journey of uncovering what it means to be a teenager possessing powers.
Joining the list of Marvel actors who appraised the series publicly, was Brie Larson, who plays Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel in the MCU. Larson, who will soon join Vellani in The Marvels, also took to Twitter to express her excitement.
You ARE a superhero, Kamala. https://t.co/7I7m0os5Mg
