Ms. Marvel is reportedly filming this summer, with her first movie appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe coming soon after. The name Ms. Marvel has been around since the late ’60s, which was used by Carol Danvers herself. Kamala Khan, however, is a relatively new superhero compared to others appearing in the MCU. Khan’s Ms. Marvel first appeared in 2013, becoming the first Muslim superhero from Marvel Comics.
Despite her being a relatively new superhero, Disney announced at their D23 fan event last year that Ms. Marvel was getting her own Disney+ series, along with She-Hulk and Moon Knight. Very little is known about Ms. Marvel so far, except that Bisha K. Ali will be the head writer on the show, and that the character will eventually crossover into the MCU films. That being said, Ms. Marvel’s show won’t be released until Phase 4, so it makes sense that we don’t know a lot about the series just yet. The filming start date has potentially been revealed, though.
According to The Illuminerdi, Ms. Marvel will start filming this summer. Whoever is cast as Ms. Marvel must be able to shoot between July 2020 and June 2021, with filming expected to commence in August. The Illuminerdi also speculates that Captain Marvel 2 could be Ms. Marvel’s first appearance in the MCU since the film should be shooting around the same time as the Disney+ series. The long stretch of time could also be including the months needed to film a second season of the show.
Fans will have to wait a few more years for Ms. Marvel, but they certainly don’t have to wait that long for more superhero content. Disney already has several television shows announced, the first of which is expected to be available for streaming later this year. The first superhero show coming to Disney+ is The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which will be followed by WandaVision afterward. 2021 is also looking like a big year for Marvel, with Loki and the animated What If…? series streaming that year. Hawkeye was rumored to be indefinitely delayed, but that turned out to be untrue and will probably be released in 2022 at the earliest.
The Ms. Marvel series was thought to start filming this spring, but the slight delay shouldn’t be a need for concern. The slight delay may be to line the character up for a Captain Marvel 2 cameo as mentioned above, and Disney likely has big plans for Ms. Marvel. A Young Avengers movie or TV show has been rumored to be in development, especially after Kevin Feige said seeds were being planted for a possible introduction of the Young Avengers. Ms. Marvel would likely be a part of that team, which means that her TV show would probably just be the beginning of her storyline in the MCU.
