The anticipation for the debut of Captain Marvel is at an all-time high. Her tease at the end of Avengers: Infinity War has fans clamoring for her solo film which is set to release next year. Many saw the announcement of Carol Danvers joining the MCU as a gateway for another character to make her way to the big screen. That, of course, would be Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel.
Many believed it would be sometime before we saw Khan in live-action because of her similarity to Captain Marvel. It had been speculated that her place could be on tv, with the possibility of a solo series or a cameo on something like Agents of Shield. In any case, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige just announced that Kamala Khan is on her way.
In an interview with BBC, Feige revealed that Marvel does indeed have plans for the character after they wrap up Captain Marvel. You can check out the clip below:
Feige doesn’t specify whether the plans are for the character to appear in TV or in the cinematic MCU. He did mention the fact that they were waiting until Captain Marvel finished to move forward with their plans, meaning a likely sequel to the film could be an option to introduce Khan.
Ms. Marvel has grown a large following since her introduction in 2013. She’s one of the few Muslim superheroes that have been introduced into the mainstream. As the MCU continues to grow, diversity and representation within the films will continue to grow as well. Kamala Khan is the perfect character to bring a new perspective to the universe we know and love.
