The first complete Ms. Marvel teaser was released on Tuesday, officially bringing Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. MCU actors like Mark Ruffalo congratulated Vellani on her MCU debut by sharing the teaser. Carol Danvers is now wishing Vellani the best of luck in the MCU. Brie Larson joined in the fun on Tuesday evening, paying respect to the MCU newbie and her Marvel co-actors.
“You ARE a superhero, Kamala,” Larson Tweeted.
Vellani said in 2021, “The fact that the show is being made and they’re including this character in the MCU is [what’s important].”
She added, “I don’t really have to go out of my way and talk about being a Muslim and being Pakistani — it all comes out in the show. People seeing a person like me involved in a project as big as this is, I think, inspiring enough.”
Sana Amanat On Kamala Khan
Co-creator of Ms. Marvel, Sana told the Inquirer last year about the rising popularity of Ms. Marvel among Marvel Comics fans over the years.
“She’s grown so much in the last four years and the diversity of our fanbase alone is so impressive. They all love Ms. Marvel. It goes to show we have a really great story with great creators,” Sana said. “I think it’s incredibly important that we tell young women and young girls that they have this incredible power within themselves, and that they have heroes out there [who] … they can look up to, especially in these times.”
On June 8th Ms. Marvel will release. The Marvels will release in theatres next February. Captain Marvel is now available to watch on Disney+.
