Ms. Marvel may be the star of the recently released Marvel’s Avengers video game, but we’re yet to see her first appearance in the MCU. That’s set to change later in phase four after Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige announced that Kamila Khan will star in her own Disney+ series.
Production for the Ms. Marvel Disney+ series is set to begin later this year and is scheduled to run until next Spring. Whilst we still haven’t had confirmation of who will play the lead role in the series, casting is now reportedly in the final stages. One thing we do know, however, is that Bad Boys For Life directing duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah have signed on to direct “at least one episode” of the series. The news comes via a report on The Direct, who also revealed that each episode will be one-hour long.
Recruiting the duo of Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah is quite the coup for Marvel Studios. Earlier this year, the pair confirmed that they have been in talks with both Marvel and DC to work on projects. Back in June of this year, the pair discussed the chance of working with Marvel in an interview with Comicbook.com. El Arbi had this to say at the time:
Kamila Khan, or Ms. Marvel as she is better known, is a 16-year Pakistani-American girl who lives in New Jersey. Her first comic book appearance came in August 2013’s Captain Marvel #14. She went on to star in her own solo series in February 2014. She is Inhuman and has the ability to change extend her limbs, shape-shift and change her appearance. Growing up she was a huge fan of Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel) and decided to take the discarded Ms. Marvel name when her Inhumanity was awakened.
Not much is known about the Ms. Marvel Disney+ series yet, although the character is set to appear in 2022’s Captain Marvel 2.
