Ms. Marvel star Iman Vellani recently shared her experience working on The Marvels with Samuel L. Jackson and Brie Larson. Ms. Marvel’s first two episodes are now streaming on Disney+. Vellani portrays the role of Kamala Khan, a teenage Pakistani American from Jersey City, New Jersey with polymorphing abilities who discovers that she has Inhuman genes in the aftermath of the “Inhumanity” storyline and assumes the mantle of Ms. Marvel from her idol Carol Danvers after Danvers becomes Captain Marvel.
In an interview, Iman Vellani told that she learned a lot from Samuel L. Jackson and Brie Larson during The Marvels filming, “It’s great and I learned a lot from them. They were so supportive, if they ever saw me wanting to try something, they would really support me and be like, Do what you’re about to do, it might work.”
The Marvels features the characters Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel, Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel, and Monica Rambeau. The film is a sequel to Captain Marvel (2019), and the Disney+ series Ms. Marvel (2022). directed by Nia DaCosta from a screenplay by Megan McDonnell, and stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan, and Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, alongside Samuel L. Jackson.
