After a social media campaign to get her cast as the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Ms. Marvel, Blockers star Geraldine Viswanathan is certainly open to the idea.
"Oh my gosh, I don't know. Yeah, I mean that would be, that would be sweet, but I don't think it's up to me," she told Variety. "I think it's up to the community... I think she's such an important character to that community, and I wouldn't want to impose myself on that."
Created by editors Sana Amanat and Stephen Wacker, writer G. Willow Wilson and artist Adrian Alphona in 2014, Kamala Khan is a teenage Pakistani-American superhero from Jersey City, New Jersey. An Inhuman with shapeshifting abilities, she adopted the title Ms. Marvel after her role model Carol Danvers, now known as Captain Marvel. Since her debut, Kamala has become a fan favorite. The character has worked alongside the Avengers and the Secret Warriors. Currently, she is the leader of the Champions, a group of teenage superheroes.
Last year, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed there were plans to include Ms. Marvel in the MCU but explained that they would need to establish Captain Marvel first. Considering Kamala was first introduced in the pages of Captain Marvel before getting her own title, it wouldn't be surprising to see Kamala referenced in the upcoming Marvel film.
Viswanathan, who will star in the upcoming comedy series Miracle Workers, is a fan of the comics. She confirmed that no one from Marvel has reached out to her to discuss the role.
