MCU and Disney+ reveals new superhero in ‘Ms. Marvel’ trailer with teenage superhero Kamala Khan.
Marvel Studios and Disney+ have officially introduced the newest teenage superhero Kamala Khan in the much-awaited trailer for 'Ms. Marvel', MCU’s first on-screen Muslim superhero.
'Ms. Marvel' - set to premiere on June 8 - introduces Iman Vellani, who plays a Pakistani-American high schooler from New Jersey who doodles and daydreams about one day joining the superheroes she idolizes, most notably, Carol Danvers.
The cast also includes Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Matt Lintz, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Nakli, Azhar Usman, Travina Springer and Nimra Bucha.
‘Ms. Marvel’ is based on the 2013 Comics where Kamala shows her shapeshifting skills, from changing her height to elongating her limbs and enlarging her first to throw one hell of a punch while wondering what her life would be like if she is a superhero as she finds it hard to fit in at school and at home.
The trailer then sets off with The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights,” with Kamala in the high-school guidance counselor’s office, while doodles of speech bubbles, hearts and devil horns pop up on screen.
In the two minute teaser for the upcoming movie, Kamala encounters sniping classmates who mispronounce her name, poking fun at her Avengers T-shirt and was seen gawking at a shirtless boy at a party surrounded by equally awed friends.
And, crucially, as her abilities are apparently more cosmic in nature and involve her making energy constructs, she envisions herself as a version of Captain Marvel, a cosmic-powered icon in the MCU
Episodes are directed by Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah, Meera Menon, and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy with Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, and Bisha K. Ali as the executive producers and co-executive producers are Sana Amanat and Trevor Waterson, and Bisha K. Ali is the head writer.
The Ms. Marvel comics have flown off the shelves since Kamala Khan’s solo debut in 2014, winning multiple awards in the two years following its initial release, and continues to sell well.
