Ms. Marvel may be on her way to the small screen.
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.
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 a MCU tentpole, it seems he is making good on that promise.
Created by Sana Amanat, Stephen Wacker, G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona, the character Kamala Khan first appeared in 2013's Captain Marvel #14. As a superpowered Pakistani-American teenage girl, Kamala became the fourth character to assume the mantle of Ms. Marvel, succeeding Carol Danvers (the current Captain Marvel), Sharon Ventura and Karla Sofen.
With the ability to stretch or "embiggen" parts of her body, Ms. Marvel has appeared in animated Marvel films and television shows, as well as several video games, but the character has yet to debut in live-action.
Seeing as Disney's D23 Expo has just kicked off, more details may arise this weekend. Stay tuned with CBR as more information becomes available.
