Pakistani actress Nimra Bucha has joined the cast of the upcoming, much-anticipated ‘Ms. Marvel’ series. The Marvel Studios’ original series is taking shape with each passing day and as per the latest intel on the highly-awaited project, the ‘Churails’ actor will also be joining the star-packed cast. ‘Churails’ was the first original Pakistani series to be launching on ZEE5, the largest streaming platform for South Asians across the globe.
According to a press release by Marvel Studio, “The Marvel Studios original series centers on fan-favorite Kamala Khan — a 16-year-old Pakistani-American growing up in Jersey City. A great student, avid gamer, and voracious fan-fic scribe, Khan has a special affinity for superheroes, particularly Captain Marvel.”
“Ms. Marvel, a newer character to Marvel Comics, has grabbed the world’s imagination and Kevin Feige, president, Marvel Studios, and chief creative officer, Marvel, was excited to announce during The Walt Disney Company’s Investor Day presentation that newcomer Iman Vellani will star as Ms. Marvel in the series,” it added.
Ms. Marvel is Marvel Studios’ first onscreen Muslim hero. Written by Bisha K. Ali and co-created by Marvel editor and director Sana Amanat, she was first introduced in 2014. Feige had earlier said that in addition to appearing on the small screen, Kamala Khan will also be included in future Marvel films.
Joining Vellani and Nimra Bucha in the series, the cast also includes Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Matt Lintz, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Naki, Azher Usman, and Travina Springer. It is not yet clear what role Nimra will be playing in the series.
The episodes of the series will be directed by Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah (Bad Boys for Life), Meera Menon (The Walking Dead, Dirty John, Outlander), and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy.
The series is set to premiere on Disney+ in late 2021.
