Disney Plus has become the primary platform for various new Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) shows, including “WandaVision,” “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” “Loki,” “Hawkeye,” and “Moon Knight.” It has also become the new home for the original series of “The Defenders” characters, such as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Punisher, which were originally aired on Netflix. Now, Disney Plus is set to introduce another new superhero, Ms. Marvel.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe on Disney+ is growing, and one of the new additions is the beloved character Kamala Khan, also known as Ms. Marvel. Similar to Peter Parker, Kamala is a teenage superhero who faces the challenge of juggling high school life with her superhero duties. The upcoming Disney+ series, titled “Ms. Marvel,” will introduce this young superhero to the MCU. Let’s dive into everything we know about the series so far.
On March 15, Disney Plus shared the first trailer for “Ms. Marvel.” The trailer gives fans their first look at Kamala Khan, a young girl who dreams of becoming a superhero. In the trailer, Kamala gets the opportunity to turn her dream into reality. You can find and watch the “Ms. Marvel” trailer on Disney Plus or other online platforms.
In December 2020, a video preview for “Ms. Marvel” was released. The preview showed some early footage from the series and included interviews with the people behind the show.
Ms. Marvel Release Date
The show is scheduled to debut on June 8, 2022, and will consist of six episodes. These episodes will be released on a weekly basis until July 13. It’s important to note that this release schedule applies to the United States, while other countries may have different release dates. Countries like Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom are expected to follow the same weekly release pattern. However, in Pakistan, the series will have a cinematic release with two episodes shown together.
The cast of Ms. Marvel
Iman Vellani has been chosen to portray the main character Kamala Khan, and she will be joined by Saagar Shaikh in the role of Kamala’s brother Amir Khan. The experienced actor Aramis Knight will play the character Red Dagger, also known as Kareem. Zenobia Shroff and Mohan Kapoor will portray Kamala’s parents, Muneeba Khan and Yusuf Khan. Zenobia has appeared in the TV series “The Affair,” while Mohan Kapoor has a long and varied acting career spanning several decades. The cast also includes Matt Lintz as Kamala’s best friend Bruno Carrelli, Yasmeen Fletcher as Nakia Bahadir, Rish Shah as Kamran, Laurel Marsden as Zoe Zimmer, Adaku Ononogbo as Fariha, Laith Nakli as Sheikh Abdullah, and Travina Springer as Amir’s wife Tyesha Hillman.
The cast of “Ms. Marvel” also includes Fawad Khan, Arian Moayed, Alysia Reiner, Azhar Usman, Nimra Bucha, Alyy Khan, Mehwish Hayat, Anjali Bhimani, and Farhan Akhtar in undisclosed roles. Many of the cast members are relatively new to the acting scene, including some of the more experienced actors who may not be widely recognized. This series could serve as a breakthrough opportunity for these actors, especially considering the strong possibility that their characters will also appear in the upcoming movie “The Marvels.”
“Ms. Marvel” is a groundbreaking superhero project as it features a Muslim hero, specifically focusing on the character Kamala Khan. Kamala Khan, also known as Ms. Marvel, is a relatively new Marvel superhero who made her first appearance in 2014. In the comics, Kamala Khan is a Pakistani American teenager living in Jersey City who idolizes superheroes like Captain Marvel. These characteristics are expected to be portrayed in the “Ms. Marvel” TV show.
The name “Ms. Marvel” originally belonged to Carol Danvers when she debuted in 1976, but she later adopted the identity of Captain Marvel in 2012. Kamala Khan, a new teenage character, took on the Ms. Marvel name. She is a Pakistani American from Jersey City, New Jersey, who possesses shapeshifting abilities inherited from her latent Inhuman DNA.
Who is Ms. Marvel and what are her powers?
In the comics, Kamala Khan becomes Ms. Marvel after her latent powers are awakened by a mysterious mist. These powers allow her to alter her size and shape. It is unknown whether the TV series will follow the same origin story for Kamala’s powers. However, based on the trailer, it appears that special bracelets play a role in unlocking her abilities. The trailer hints at some of her powers, including telekinetic abilities and the ability to create a large cosmic energy-like fist.
In the comics, Ms. Marvel has a strong bond with her family, and her powers are connected to her grandmother through the bracelets she wears. This family connection becomes a significant source of conflict for Kamala as she navigates the challenges of being a high school student, a dutiful daughter, and a superhero. Balancing these different roles and responsibilities becomes a central struggle for her character.
