According to Deadline, the details of his character have been kept under wraps, even though it is said to be a guest appearance. “Ms. Marvel,” which comes from the blockbuster Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), is fronted by newcomer Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel, a Muslim American teenager growing up in Jersey City. “Kamala is an avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe with an oversized imagination particularly when it comes to Captain Marvel (played by Brie Larson in the MCU). Yet Kamala feels she doesn’t fit in at school and sometimes even at home until she gets superpowers like her idols,” the official plotline read.
Marvel is known for creating larger-than-life films and for the past year the studio has also started making series to help fill the gap between past and upcoming projects.
“Bad Boys for Life” creators Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, a two-time Oscar winner in the documentary short category, and Meera Menon, who has worked on shows like “The Walking Dead,” have directed the episodes of the series. Bisha K Ali, a scribe and stand-up comic known for her personal-political comedy is the head writer of the project.
Ms. Marvel’s cast also includes Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Matt Lintz, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Nakli, Azhar Usman, Travina Springer, and Nimra Bucha.
“Ms. Marvel” will premiere on June 8th on streaming service Disney+ Hotstar, where it will be available in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam.
Not competent enough to sit idle and stare as the world goes by, Pallavi is optimistic to a fault and believes in building her world on her own rather than depending on others to make things right.
