While there is official news that a breakdown in negotiations between Sony and Disney has led to Spider-Man (Tom Holland) being removed from the MCU, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and his team are working to bring one of the other beloved teen characters to the ever-expanding franchise. For years, fans have been asking for a live-action Kamala Khan, and now it looks like their dreams are finally coming true.
Ms. Marvel is on the way!
A report from ComicBook says Marvel Studios is working on a Ms. Marvel TV series for the upcoming streaming service Disney+. Unlike previous shows from Marvel TV, this new series will be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, allowing Kamala Khan to join other characters on the big screen at any point.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, British screenwriter Bisha K. Ali, a stand-up comedian and staff writer on Four Weddings and a Funeral for Hulu, will be penning this series and acting as the showrunner. Still, no casting details or release dates have been made available at this time.
The Disney+ panel at D23 Exo was set to begin at 3:30 PM PT on last Friday. It’s likely where Marvel Studios and the Walt Disney Company will confirm the news. There is also a chance that Kevin Feige could announce the casting of Kamala Khan, but that remains to be seen.
Over the last week, the future is looking even brighter for Ms. Marvel after a couple of major announcements. Kamalan Khan has already become one of the most popular teenage characters in all of Marvel. And now she is about to be featured in two major mediums. Last week, it was confirmed that Kamala Khan would appear in the upcoming Square Enix action-adventure video game, Marvel’s Avengers, set to release in 2020.
So, are you looking forward to the Ms. Marvel TV series on Disney+? And who do you think should play the titular role?
Disney+ launches on November 12.
