2021 is set to be a monster year for MCU content. Following a down year in 2020 due to Coronavirus, Marvel Studios is releasing a total of 10 new series and feature films in the space of 12 months. Ms. Marvel will be one of the final releases of 2021 and will introduce Kamala Khan into the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Disney+.
In December, Kevin Feige confirmed that newcomer Iman Vellani has been cast in the role of Kamala Khan. We saw a sneak peek of the actor in action via a sizzle reel trailer released at Disney Investor Day. Feige also officially announced that Bad Boys for Life duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah will direct the series.
In recent weeks, several leaks for Ms. Marvel have revealed some additional cast members for the series. Last week, it was revealed that Lauren Marsden has been cast as Kamala Khan’s classmate, Zoe Zimmer. We’ve also had confirmation over the weekend that Laith Nakli and Alysia Reiner have filmed there parts for the series and have now left the set.
With filming currently underway in Atlanta, a new video has been released by the Daily Mail and shared by Iman Vellani Brasil on Twitter. The video shows Iman Vellani in a Captain Marvel costume climbing onto the roof of her home. The roof of the set looks the same as the one revealed in leaked set photos from back in November.
Ms. Marvel is currently expected to premiere on Disney+ later this year. Following the series, Kamala Khan will team up with Monica Rambeau and Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel 2 which will release in November 2022.
