Iman Vellani-starrer Ms Marvel has premiered on Disney+. In an exclusive chat with IndiaToday.in, we asked the makers if we would see Ms Marvel join the Avengers in the future.
- Ms Marvel stars Iman Vellani in the lead role of Kamala Khan.
- The producers of the show call Ms Marvel ‘the greatest of all’.
- Ms Marvel has opened to mixed reactions from the audience.
Ms Marvel, starring Iman Vellani in the lead, is currently streaming on Disney+. With Ms Marvel, the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) finally gets its first Muslim superhero character, and some significant South-Asian representation, which had been missing for years now. During the press conference, producer Sana Amanat mentioned how she added parts of her experience to build Kamala Khan’s character, played by Iman. We also asked if Ms Marvel would be part of the Avengers. This is what the makers had to say:
‘MS MARVEL IN AVENGERS? NOT A FAR-FETCHED THOUGHT’
Producer Sana Amanat, along with the directors of the show, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, spoke with IndiaToday.in about what makes Ms Marvel unique. When asked if Ms Marvel would join the Avengers in the future, Sana promptly said, “Ms Marvel in the universe? I don’t think it is far-fetched. It can happen. I think Ms Marvel will be the greatest.”
‘FAWAD AND FARHAN IN THE MCU’
It is no secret that Fawad Khan and Farhan Akhtar are also making their MCU debuts with the show. The trio, while speaking to IndiaToday.in, revealed that both Farhan and Fawad’s roles add a lot of gravitas to the show. We have already been provided with a glimpse of Farhan Akhtar in the series where he is seen mouthing the iconic Rumi dialogue ‘What you seek is seeking you!’ Oh, the effect!
Ms Marvel has created all the right buzz with its unique storyline. It is a slight shift from the usual MCU world we have been offered before. Iman is pitch-perfect as Kamala Khan, who seems to give us a glimpse of every brown girl’s ‘Dear Diary’ moment.
