On the big and small screens, the Marvel Cinematic Universe still has a ton of new characters left to show off before the end of the year. One character that will soon take on the spotlight is newcomer Iman Vellani in the upcoming Disney+ series, Ms. Marvel! While it’s likely due to be delayed to sometime in early 2022, the show will mark Vellani’s Hollywood debut helmed by Bisha K. Ali as the as the show’s head writer. Bad Boys For Life directing duo Billal Fallah and Adil El Arbi have also joined the project along with Meera Menon and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy both of who’ve directed a few episodes.
As fans patiently wait for a release date or any info surrounding the plot of the series, Iman Vellani channels her inner Kamala Khan with an awesome Iron Man centric stop-motion short film! Right down below you can check out the 90-second Vimeo short titled “I don’t wanna b alone”
Iman IS Kamala Khan IRL
This video first made the rounds back in May and has garnered only a few hundred views. You probably didn’t know this but before Vellani was picked to play Kamala Khan, she was a huge fan of Iron Man and has loved the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She even made this short film for Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige during the pandemic. Knowing that Vellani is a Marvel nerd in real life and seeing that passion put on display just goes to show that she is absolutely the best person to take on this character!
It’s a bittersweet feeling knowing that Vellani won’t be interacting with Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man. However, she will get to be sharing major screen time with Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel and Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau in the upcoming Captain Marvel sequel, The Marvels!
Let us know in the comments below if you’re excited to see Iman’s MCU debut.
