With the premiere of Ms. Marvel In just a few short weeks, Marvel Studios has offered some new looks at how the new character will fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
A behind-the-scenes featurette opens with the June 2020 Zoom call that saw the series star Iman Vellani lands her very first acting job as the titular hero.
“It was a unanimous decision,” said Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, alongside casting director Sarah Halley Finn and the directors. Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah.
Following moon knight, Ms. Marvel is the second Disney+ MCU series to focus on a character never before seen in the movies. However, unlike Marc Spector, Kamala Khan has clearly spent a lot of time thinking about Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
The New Jersey teenager is a huge fan of Captain Marvel, with several posters of the cosmically enhanced character displayed prominently in his room. When she gains her own powers, she is inspired to fight crime in a cosplay version of her favorite Avenger’s signature costume.
In the comics, Pakistani-American Kamala uses her shapeshifting skills to make herself look like white, blonde Carol Danvers before realizing she can still be a superhero with her natural look. It looks like the show will hit that narrative beat with the creation of Ms. Marvel’s costume instead.
“It’s not about who you look like or what clothes you wear,” says Sana Amanat, executive producer and editor of Marvel Comics. “It’s about what you do with what you’ve been given.”
The series will diverge of the character’s original ability to change the size and appearance of their body through genetic modification. Live action, she will brandish a bracelet endowed with supernatural powers.
“She can manifest light,” Vellani describes.
In other images, Ms. Marvel is seen using the bracelet’s energy to create an oversized fist, shield, and steps that allow her to walk through the air. Another video, titled “Destiny”, hints that the mysterious device is a family heirloom.
Ms. Marvel will release one episode per week on Disney+ from June 8, unless you live in Pakistan, where the limited series will be repackaged into three feature films for theaters.
