Marvel Studios released the first teaser for Ms. Marvel. The miniseries, created by Bisha K. Ali, will introduce viewers to Kamala Khan, a 16-year-old Muslim Pakistani-American from Jersey City and Captain Marvel superfan who has shape-shifting abilities. Ms. Marvel will be led by Iman Vellani as the titular character. watch the teaser below.
Saagar Shaikh, Aramis Knight, Matt Lintz, Zenobia Shroff, and Mohan Kapur join Vellani in the cast of Ms. Marvel. Vellani was originally announced in mid-2019, with Bad Boys for Life’s Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah engaged to lead the directorial team, which also features Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Meera Menon. Development was first revealed in mid-2019, with Ali attached as the series’ main writer. With the film’s production wrapping earlier this year, fans are as excited as ever to see Ms. Marvel for the first time.
Given that many aspects regarding the series have been kept under wraps, the new Ms. Marvel teaser is sure to be an enticing tease for fans of the impending series. Although the video does not disclose much about the plot of the series, it does provide some interesting views into the nature of Kamala Khan’s abilities, including some new ones not before seen for the character. In the comics, Kamala discovers she possesses Inhuman DNA after Terrigen Mists are released over the planet, reawakening latent Inhuman cells and granting her shapeshifting powers, allowing her to take on the mantle of Ms. Marvel after her idol Carol Danvers takes on the mantle of Captain Marvel.
With the bright sight of a powered-up Kamala appearing nearly identical to Danvers’ transformation in the Brie Larson-led film, the new Ms. Marvel trailer appears to hint her powers will extend to similar energy absorption and manipulation as Danvers’ Captain Marvel. With Kamala’s journey slated to continue in The Marvels with Monica Rambeau of WandaVision, it’s understandable that the show’s creators would aim to strike a balance between likeness and variance in powers for the eponymous heroic three. When Ms. Marvel premieres on Disney+ in Summer 2022, only time will reveal how Kamala acquires her abilities and how they vary from those in the comics.
