Marvel Studios will be introducing the first Muslim superhero Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with her own series on Disney+ with the idea that she will crossover into the films.
Now according to DiscussingFilm, they have learned that the series is looking to begin production sometime next September.
As of now, there is no set production start date or location, so things can change very quickly over the course of the next year. However, this is a good sign that the studio wants to get things rolling. We should be hearing some casting news within the year.
Hulu’s Four Weddings and a Funeral writer, Brisha K. Ali has signed on to be the series’ writer and showrunner.
“Ms. Marvel as a comic and heroine has existed since 1976, with the character Carol Danvers using the name for her crime-fighting escapades. Several other characters have briefly taken up the mantle, and Danvers herself became Captain Marvel in 2012.”
The series will focus on the shape-shifting Pakistani-American teenager Kamala Khan from New Jersey, while there is no report yet of when the series will premiere. Hopefully, this leads to her own standalone film, or possibly appearance in the Captain Marvel sequel.
