The first official teaser for Ms. Marvel has been released by Disney+, and it teases the debut of the heroine of a fan-favorite comic in her own solo series as part of the MCU’s Phase Four. Iman Vellani, a newbie to the program, plays Kamala Khan, an average girl from Jersey City who writes her own fanfiction (mainly about her favorite Captain Marvel) and soon discovers she has unexpected talents. The six-episode TV series will debut on Disney+ on June 8.
The first teaser provides an instructive crash course inside the psyche of Kamala Khan, who appears to spend a lot of her time fantasizing about becoming her favorite superhero or discreetly holding a crush on a boy she likes. Of course, it is only when Kamala decides she needs to return to reality that she receives incredible powers; however, it appears that their origin has been altered slightly from the comics, with Kamala being able to create and harness energy rather than changing her shape or being able to stretch her arms and legs.
Production on the Disney+ series wrapped in May 2021, and we also learned earlier that month that Kamala will be appearing in Captain Marvel prequel The Marvels, with the “S” from the original Ms. Marvel logo appearing in the Marvels edition when the title was publicly acknowledged. In addition to Brie Larson‘s Carol Danvers, the superhero sequel will include Teyonah Parris‘ Monica Rambeau, who made her debut in the Disney+ program WandaVision last year.
Ms. Marvel also stars Aramis Knight as Kareem/Red Dagger, Saagar Shaikh as Kamala’s elder brother Amir, Matt Lintz as Kamala’s closest friend Bruno Carrelli, Rish Shah as Kamran, and Mohan Kapur and Zenobia Shroff as Kamala’s parents, together with Vellani. Laith Nakli, Azhar Usman, Yasmeen Fletcher, Travina Springer, Alyy Khan, Nimra Bucha, Laurel Marsden as Zoe Zimmer, and Alysia Reiner have all been cast in unspecified parts. Anjali Bhimani, a Marvel’s Runaways veteran and Overwatch voice actor, was also confirmed earlier this week as joining the series.
Along with Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, and Victoria Alonso, Bisha K. Ali serves as the show’s chief writer and executive producer. Sana Amanat and Brad Winderbaum are co-executive producers. The directors for this season are Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, Bilall Fallah and Adil El Arbi, and Meera Menon.
Ms. Marvel will debut on Disney+ on June 8 with a total of six episodes. Below is the first trailer:
