Spider-Man is gone from the MCU, and that’s a bummer.
(Disney needs to put on their big boy pants and return to deal, but that’s neither here nor there.)
On the bright side, however, we may finally be getting the long-awaited live-action debut of another teen superhero to the MCU. That’s right, we’re finally getting a Ms. Marvel property in the franchise.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel is developing a live-action series for its Disney+ streaming service that will feature one Miss Kamala Khan a.k.a Ms. Marvel! YES!
Not much is known about the series, but we do have a showrunner for it. Bisha K. Ali, who was part of the writer’s room for Mindy Kaling’s Four Weddings and a Funeral, will pen the pilot and serve as showrunner. At the time of reporting, Marvel had no comment on the series.
This has been on property that fans have been dying to see for years. In Marvel Comics, Ms. Marvel was the superhero name for Carol Danvers from 1976 to 2012. While several other characters have taken the mantle, Danvers is the main user of the moniker. In 2012, however, she took up the name Captain Marvel.
Kamala Khan, who followed in Danvers footsteps, is a Muslim teen from New Jersey and a first generation Pakistani-American. She is the first superhero of Muslim faith and Pakistani-American background in Marvel Comics. Most of her stories are about balancing her family and religious traditions while forging her own path in the world. Penned originally by G. Willow Wilson, the series and Khan met with critical and widespread acclaim. She’s pretty beloved for such a relatively recent character.
The series nabbed both Hugo and Eisner awards. Kamala has also appeared in multiple animated series and other books.
At the time, however, there’s no timetable for the show. Hopefully, it will be sooner rather than later.
