In Marvel’s commitment to diversifying its cinematic universe, it makes a bold move of introducing the world to its first Muslim south Asian character, Kamala Khan.
Although it is scheduled to debut this year’s summer, the news of her series production was announced back in 2019 at D23.
There is no doubt, that Disney plus has now released the trailer for the six-episode series, which features the Pakistani-Americans new powers and adventure to be expected.
In 2013, Kamala Khan made her comics debut and quickly became a fan favorite in Marvel’s fandom.
Considering the successful slew of mini-series last year which included LOKI, Wanda Vision, Falcon, and The Winter Soldier, What…If?, and Hawkeye, Marvel has deemed it fit for her story to follow the same approach but with a unique twist.
Newbie Iman Vellani takes the lead role for the titular character in this series which will cause her to appear in more MCU flicks from now on, considering a marvel multiverse is in motion.
Originally, Kamala was introduced as an “Inhuman” in the comics, but her nature and powers would likely be altered in the live-action adaptation as seen in the trailer footage where her powers come from gauntlets.
Asides from the superhero plotline, other themes that make Ms Marvel a crowd-pleaser yet to hit Disney plus, is the incorporation of Kamala’s cultural heritage, religion, teenage angst, and the coming-of-age story of who one would assume to be a regular high school girl.
After all, “No one expects the brown kid from New Jersey to be the one to save the world,” The teenage hero says to her best friend in the trailer.
