Marvel Studios is developing a live-action Ms. Marvel TV show for Disney’s upcoming streaming service, Disney+.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel is developing a live-action series based on the teenage Muslim superhero for the Disney+ streaming service. Four Weddings and a Funeral scribe Bisha K. Ali will write and serve as showrunner. Disney declined to comment.
Introduced in 2014 by Marvel Comics, Kamala Khan is a Pakistani-American teen from Jersey City, New Jersey. An Inhuman with shape-shifting abilities, she adopted the name Ms. Marvel after her role model Carol Danvers, now known as Captain Marvel. Since her debut, Kamala has become a fan-favorite character who has worked alongside the Avengers and the Secret Warriors. She’s now the leader of the Champions, a group of teenage superheroes.
Last year, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed he had plans to introduce Ms. Marvel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but explained that they would need to establish Captain Marvel first. Now that Captain Marvel has become an MCU tentpole, it seems he is making good on that promise.
