Ms. Marvelwill feature Iman Vellani''s debut as the MCU''s Kamala Khan, with the show serving as a stepping stone for Kamala''s bright future in the interconnected franchise. Kamala''s unique origin story is expected to be revealed in the upcoming Disney+ series, which will also feature Brie Larson''s big screen debut in The Marvels.
Phase 4 has been filling up with new heroes, such as Moon Knight, Shang-Chi, She-Hulk, the Mighty Thor, and Ms. Marvel. However, it is still unclear how every character fits into the MCU future puzzle. Even so, Kamala''s character is expected to be further enacted, already being shown to be heading towards the cosmos.
In a recent interview, significant information about Vellani''s MCU future has been revealed.
Ms. Marvel''''s Huge MCU Role Teased
Bisha K. Ali, a former Marvel executive producer and writer, spoke with USA Today to discuss what will be next for Kamala Khan from Iman Vellani.
Kamala''s debut is "quite enticing," according to Ali, alongside "this next wave of MCU heroes," which includes Xochitl Gomez''s America Chavez and Letitia Wright. The Marvel creator shared that the trio are "the future protectors of the world" and the new stories that we need to tell, thus implying that they will be the focus in the sequel''s phase 5 and beyond:
"It''s indicative of a real hopeful future in which it''s about uniting rather than division. She''ll play a big role in that."
Vellani, the teenage daughter of Pakistani immigrants, is a fan of comic books and everything Marvel-related, according to the sheoung actress. Although her MCU character is a huge fan of Captain Marvel, the sheoung actress noted that Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr., is her all-time favorite.
Vellani stated that "being a part of Marvel fandom just makes you feel like you''re a part of something," while also admitting that she''d seen the first Iron Man movie "100 million times:"
Being a part of Marvel fandom makes you feel like youre a part of something, and isn''t that sort of thing we all want? It''s comfortable, and it''s what we all know. Iron Man has sold 1 million times.
This isn''t the first time that Vellani expressed his love for the Armored Avenger. Back when she was confirmed to portray Kamala Khan, the young actress revealed that she is a huge Iron Man fan.
Vellani reveals how Kamala adapts to becoming a superhero, claiming that her character "just copies everything she sees on the net:."
She does not know how to fight, so she only copies everything she sees on the internet.
She said she''s been practicing my super pose since she was 10, and that she got it in the bag. The first time she saw Kamala and Vellani once said she "felt so seen"
When you think of comic book readers, you never think of the brown girl. Kamala is a genius in nerd culture. We recognize her as a human being, therefore we need her to thrive.
The Bright Future of Iman Vellani''''s Kamala
Bisha K. Ali''s latest claim about Kamala Khan''s MCU future is a positive development, mainly because it suggests that the character will likely serve as one of the anchors of the franchise in Phase 5. This might meanhat the character''s adventures in Ms. Marvel and The Marvels are expected to lay out the foundationwork for that bright future.
In Phase 5, Kamala''s role as one of the key players in the MCU is a natural progression for the character. By the time Phase 4 comes to a conclusion, it''s reasonable to assume that Kamala has already established her identity as a full-fledged hero, meaning that she has what it takes to stand alongside not only with Captain Marvel, but also with the rest of Earth''s Mightiest Heroes.
Iman Vellani''s incredible passion for the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a welcome bonus for the franchise''s future. The actress has been vocal about her support for the Marvel universe, and this will likely continue to occur in the future.
Vellani''s departure as titular hero will likely serve as a strong signal of support for the franchise. Also, seeing her alongside other strong female members of the MCU, like America Chavez and Mighty Thor, might eventually inspire fans everywhere, sending a message that anyone may be a hero in their own right.
Ms. Marvel will launch on Disney+ on June 8th.
