Things are about to potentially get a lot more marvelous on the upcoming Disney+ streaming service. Fan-favorite Inhuman and Muslim superhero Kamala Khan, the high-flying Ms. Marvel is getting her own series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
British writer and comedian Bisha K. Ali has reportedly been tapped to write for the series and act as the showrunner.
Before Carol Danvers became Captain Marvel in the comics in 2012, taking on the moniker of the long dead Kree hero Mar-Vell, she went by the name Ms. Marvel. Editors Sana Amanat & Stephen Wacker along with writer G. Willow Wilson and artists Adrian Alphona & Jamie McKelvie took that opportunity to create Kamal Khan a Pakistani American teenager from New Jersey who was a giant Captain Marvel fan & gained powers thanks to exposure to Terrigen Mists, the substance that gives Inhumans their powers.
Over the years Kamala has risen in popularity and headlined her own solo series three times, was a member of the Avengers and since 2017 has been a member of and leader of the teenage hero team known as the Champions.
Whether the series will be from Marvel Studios and be within the Marvel Cinematic Universe world alongside Falcon and Winter Soldier, Loki, WandaVision and Hawkeye or if it will be done by the wholely separate Marvel TV division is unclear.
More information is likely to come out of Disney’s currently ongoing D-23 event.
