Disney and Marvel Studios are hard at work on making Ms. Marvel aka Kamala Khan a household name! One of the many planned shows set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ms.Marvel will follow Marvel’s first leading Muslim superhero to star in her own comic book title. A couple of months back, up and comer Iman Vellani was cast as the fan-favorite Inhuman polymorph teen marking it as her first leading role in Hollywood!
Production for the upcoming Disney+ series has begun! With cameras rolling you can imagine the paparazzi aren’t too far behind. Set photos from JustJared are making their rounds across the web!
As you can see from the first picture, Kamala is sporting an Avengers t-shirt and what looks like to be Carol Danvers inspired air force jacket. From the second photo, we get our first good look at Kamala’s best friend and possible love interest from the comics Bruno Carrelli. Created by G. Willow Wilson, Bruno was the first person to know about Kamala’s secret life as a superhero. Along the way, he would help Kamala on how her Inhuman powers worked and on occasion would cover for her parents. The Walking Dead and The Alienist star, Matt Lintz, will play Bruno in the upcoming Disney+ series according to a report by Murphy’s Multiverse. In the third photo, we get a little glimpse at what looks to be a proto suit for Kamala.
Now, this next batch of set photos raises some questions. When did the world know about Captain Marvel? How did Spider-Man know about Carol’s superhero title? Did someone just randomly walk on to the Avengers HQ and film the epic battle against Thanos’ army on a phone? Did they immediately post it to YouTube? Was there someone on the Avengers side live streaming? Joking aside it’s a possibility that Brie Larson’s cosmic avenger could pop up and make an appearance but for now, it’s all speculation. Cute little Halloween costume.
Other questions fans have wondered is will the series give us a soft reboot on the Inhumans? Will the Terrigen Mist be included? Will the royal Inhuman family get another chance to shine in the MCU? How will the series handle Ms. Marvel’s polymorph powers? All good questions but we shall wait and see.
Ms. Marvel has no release date but I’m betting it’ll come out in late 2022. The show will be directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, Meera Menon, and Bad Boys For Life directing duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah. Bisha K. Ali serves as the showrunner.
