Ms. Marvel is an upcoming American streaming television series, 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 fifth, Disney+ original series, featured in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the first, starring a new character.

The series stars Iman Vellani in the titular role. Like the other Marvel series, produced by Disney+, it will be tied into wider universe, with Ms. Marvel's role, in the upcoming Captain Marvel 2[5].

Ms. Marvel is set to premiere in 2021.[4]

Synopsis

The Marvel Studios original series centers on fan-favorite Kamala Khan — a 16-year-old Pakistani-American growing up in Jersey City. A great student, avid gamer, and voracious fan-fic scribe, Kamala has a special affinity for Super Heroes, particularly Captain Marvel.

However, Kamala struggles to fit in at home and at school — that is, until she gets super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life is easier with super powers, right?[6]

Production

Development

In May 2018, Kevin Feige announced upcoming plans in an interview, to incorporate Ms. Marvel into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.[17] 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.[18] Sana Anamat, who co-created the series, also serves as an executive producer, while Jenna Berger, acts as a supervising producer.[19] 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 2021.[20][4] It was later reported that theoretical physicist, Clifford Johnson, was hired as a consultant, for the series.[21] 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. Prior to the beginning of filming, Production Weekly released a small blurb, detailing what Ms. Marvel would entail of:

"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."[22]

At the 2020 Disney Investors Day, Marvel released a sizzle trailer, containing the first officially released footage, for the series.
