Marvel Studios is ready with its upcoming series Ms. Marvel which will soon be available on the Disney+ streaming platform. The series will be the debut of Iman Vellani playing the character Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel who is the first Pakistani American superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Marvel Studios’ series will debut on June 8, 2022. Ms. Marvel will follow the path of Moon Knight as the series will purely focus on introducing an entirely new character in the MCU in Vellani’s Kamala Khan. During an interview, Iman Vellani revealed that she doesn’t want to meet Robert Downey Jr., aka Iron Man.
Why does Iman Vellani Not Want To Meet Robert Downey Jr?
The new Marvel Series star Iman Vellani is a big Marvel fan just like the rest of the world. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she revealed, “My favorite people on the planet are Robert Downey Jr., Billy Joel, and Kevin Feige.”
That proved that she admires them a lot. During an interview shared by Ms. Marvel UK, Vellani told about her love for Iron Man. Though she is not able to meet Downey. When asked if she would like to be introduced to the Iron Man star, she rejected the proposal and gave a totally interesting explanation where she told, “I genuinely think I’m gonna implode if I do.”

Would Ms. Marvel Star Ever Meet Tony Stark’s Star?
Though both the stars are from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s a fact that Vellani’s Kamala Khan and Downey’s Iron Man have different timelines in the Marvel which didn’t overlap. When the actress was confirmed to star in Ms. Marvel, the arc of Iron Man in the MCU ended due to Tony’s death in Avengers: Endgame.
As MCU is moving ahead with Phase 4, the storylines are distancing from the Infinity Saga. This makes sense, as Marvel is working on establishing the universe’s superheroes. This includes Ms. Marvel, as well as other new young heroes such as Hawkeye‘s Kate Bishop and Yelena Belova.
Despite the difference in their MCU arcs, Vellani and Downey’s paths might overlap in the future. The reason behind this is that if Vellani establishes herself, she will become one of the new rising Hollywood stars and may encounter Downey in the industry.
Marvel Studios series Ms. Marvel will premiere on June 8th on Disney+.
