Marvel plans to introduce Kamala Khan in the MCU

Share

The film, however, is not the studio's first female-led movie, as actress Brie Larson is set to enter the franchise as Captain Marvel in 2019. "We have plans for that once we introduce Captain Marvel". Imagine how important Ms. Marvel's role will be for the future of the MCU and as well as to the Asian community.

The South Asian character Kamala Khan aka Ms Marvel is one such superhero in development as suggested by Marvel boss Kevin Feige to BBC in a recent interview.

Fiege also mentioned that the studio is now filming Captain Marvel with Brie Larson in the lead.

But we all know that's just not the case, and if the movie is good, the audience will be there-Black Panther and Wonder Woman have proven that well enough, if there were any lingering doubts. Plus as a spunky teen superhero, she would be the ideal character to introduce as part of the young generation of heroes like Spider-Man and Black Panther's Shuri (who is not a superhero yet, but I can dream) to lead the future of the MCU.

"Stop fan-casting Priyanka Chopra as Ms Marvel".

"Definitely sort of", sounds pretty definitive... kind of.

We wonder which actress will bag the role of Ms Marvel in the next phase of MCU after Avengers 4.

Kamala Khan or Miss Marvel is a 16-year-old teenager who lives with her conservative Pakistani parents and brother in New Jersey.

It helps that Priyanka Chopra herself had lent her voice for the character of Ms Marvel in a mobile video game not long back.

But Sheza tweeted: "We are here for Priyanka Chopra playing the role". Typically, though, we shouldn't expect Marvel to give too much away until the movie hits screens next year.

Created by Sana Amanat, Stephen Wacker, G Willow Wilson, and Adrian Alphona, Kamala became Marvel's first Muslim superhero to get her own comic book and first appeared in Captain Marvel #14 comic in 2013.
