Her co-stars had more stories to share. Zenobia Shroff shared a hilarious incident when Vellani fell to the floor in excitement. She told Marvel’s website: “She was on her iPad between takes,” “WandaVision had come out, and [while she was watching] she said ‘What?’ out loud and she fell to the floor because she was so excited about what she had just seen. I don’t know what it was. I didn’t want to interrupt her viewing. But yeah, she’s very excited. She’s a fangirl.”
Kevin Feige too had earlier remarked on Vellani’s obsession with Marvel. He had said: “Much like Tom Holland and Peter Parker, Iman is a much bigger Marvel fan than we realized,”. “[On set] 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. So, better comment before the show’s done, and try to incorporate some of those ideas.”
These incidents show how much of a fan Vellani is of all things Marvel!
New Episodes of Ms. Marvel are released every Wednesday on Disney+.
