Months after Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed there are plans to introduce Ms. Marvel, to the cinematic universe, Captain Marvel star Brie Larson has revealed she'd like to share the screen with Kamala Khan in an expected movie sequel.
At a press conference for the film held this week in Singapore, Larson was asked which superhero she'd like to share the screen with in Captain Marvel 2. "My dream would be that Ms. Marvel gets to come into play," she said, to applause.
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 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.
"Ms. Marvel, which is another character in the comic books, the Muslim hero who is inspired by Captain Marvel, is definitely sort of in the works," Feige said last year. "We have plans for that once we introduce Captain Marvel." There is a social media campaign to cast Miracle Workers actress Geraldine Viswanathan in the role.

Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as Mar-Vell, Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos and Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau.
