Ms. Marvel is an upcoming American superhero web television miniseries, created by Bisha K. Ali for Disney+. It is an adaptation of the Marvel Comics of the same name, and set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, centering on the eponymous character, Ms. Marvel. It is expected to be the sixth, Disney+ original series, featured in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the first, starring a new character.

Ms. Marvel is set to premiere in 2022.[3]


The show will center on Marvel’s first Muslim superhero to star in her own comic book title. Ms. Marvel as a comic and heroine has existed since 1976, with the character Carol Danvers using the name for her crime-fighting escapades. The latest incarnation, and the one the show will be focusing on, is a teenager named Kamala Khan. Khan broke ground by becoming Marvel’s first Muslim character to be lead her own comics title. Her identity as a Pakistani American, living in a religious family in New Jersey whilst trying to find her own way, have been a major focus of the stories. Her powers have been described as polymorphous, meaning she has the ability to stretch and change her shape.[4]




In May 2018, Kevin Feige announced upcoming plans in an interview, to incorporate Ms. Marvel into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.[9] On August 23, 2019, at D23, Kevin Feige confirmed, that a Ms. Marvel series was set to be developed, starring Kamala Khan, and revealed on November 8, 2018, to be on the new streaming service Disney+, along with seven other Marvel series.[10] Following the outbreak of the coronavirus, production on Ms. Marvel, as well as all projects within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, was halted, and expected to resume in September, 2020. This pushed the expected release date to 2022.[11][3] It was later reported that theoretical physicist, Clifford Johnson, was hired as a consultant, for the series.[12] While the titular Kamala Khan, was expected to make her debut, within the series, it was later rumored, that she would be appearing elsewhere, prior to the series premiere.[13]


At D23, following the Marvel Studios announcement they were developing a series about Ms. Marvel, Bisha K. Ali was reportedly set to write and act as showrunner.[10]  


Sarah Finn, Krista Husar, and Molly Doyle were announced as casting directors for the series, with Gregory Korn and Djinous Rowling acting as casting assistants. Auditions for the titular character, began with the start of production. On November 1, 2019, casting went underway for the rest of Kamala Khan's family[5], as well as another character, code-named, "Birdman", speculated to be, Marvel Comics character, the Inventor.[14] On February 11, a casting call was released for two Muslim, male actors between the ages of 17 and 25, for the Marvel Comics characters, Red Dagger and Kamran.[6] On August 10, 2020 it was reported that a male and female character were being cast, code named, Omar and Willow, and speculated to be Amir Khan and Nakia Bahadir.[15] A new casting call was released in September, 2020, for two new characters, Zoe Zimmer, and Tyesha Hillman.[7] On September 28, 2020, a casting call for four new characters was released.[8]


Production was expected to begin, sometime in April 2020, in Atlanta under the working title "Jersey", with auditions being currently held, for the titular role.[16] It was confirmed, that Ms. Marvel would be underway next spring of, April 2020.[4] On December 7, 2019, it was revealed by Feige that production was expected to end by the end of 2020.[17] On February 3, 2020, production was to be delayed, until in August, with the Ms. Marvel shoot only expected to last about four months.[18] According to Charles Murphy, production was delayed, once again, and expected to begin to begin in sometime in November, through to March, 2021.[13] The episodes are developed, for a one hour format.[1]


Directing duo, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah were hired to direct at least one episode of the series.[1] The Hollywood Reporter reported that Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Meera Menon will be directing episodes of the series.[2]



  • Mindy Kaling and Riz Ahmed expressed an interest in writing a screenplay for, an adaptation of Ms. Marvel.[19]
  • With Kamala Khan having made her comic debut in 2014, the upcoming Ms. Marvel series features the fastest transition from comics to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a titular character.
  • A female character, yet to be announced, was given the code name Willow, named after G. Willow Wilson one of the creators of the Ms. Marvel.
