With the introduction of Disney+, the Marvel Cinematic Universe expanded its scope into television. In Black Widow and Hawkeye, fan favorite characters would leap between screens with an otherwise unseen ease and frequency. Ms. Marvel, a new Disney+ series with a hero who is also making her MCU debut, has a lot of fun coming for it: Ms. Marvel''s head writer warned that Kamala Khan would not jump to the big screen from the jump.
I knew that At the other end of this project, The Marvels was waiting for us. It''s already announced, and its not a spoiler, yet Im not in trouble, according to Ms. Marvel''s head writer Bisha K.

How can I, in some way, simplify [Kamalas story], but also make it feel like we had a great time with her? Because it is wonderful to have this time with
It''s clear that the Ms. Marvel writing team had a clear idea, perhaps like a checklist of character beats to accomplish in order to get this rookie ready for the Marvels major leagues. Exactly what Ms. Marvel''s origin and her new powers were presumably designed in mind, but this is exactly the kind of onscreen continuity and behind-the-scenes teamwork we love to see in the Marvels in July. Well, you have to wait and wonder.
Ms. Marvel has dropped new episodes on Wednesdays on Disney+, and The Marvels is scheduled to premiere in theaters on July 28, 2023.
