Many individuals were skeptical of the MCU adaptation’s approach once it was discovered that Marvel Studios had modified Ms. Marvel’s power set. Not only that, but many supporters were very cautious. Thankfully, everything seems to be going well so far—the reaction to Iman Vellani’s debut has been overwhelmingly favorable.
New Jersey has a new hero, and happily, the majority of the world is eager to follow her path.
After her six-episode Disney+ series concludes, she’ll have to go on a far larger voyage in next year’s The Marvels. Ms. Marvel will link up with Captain Marvel and Monica Rambeau in the film to take on an unknown enemy in the galaxy.
So, Ms. Marvel, how will you build up Kamala Khan’s future adventure with Carol Danvers?
Setting the Stage for Kamala’s Appearance in The Marvels
Ms. Marvel’s chief writer, Bisha K. Ali, spoke with The Hollywood Reporter on how Marvel Studios directed the crew while crafting the program and how it may build up the highly awaited feature, The Marvels.
Ali said that when the series began, they “already knew… that The Marvels was going to happen” and that Kamala will feature in this sequel, but what they still don’t know “is what’s going to happen in [the] movie:”
“When we launched the Ms. Marvel writers’ room, we already knew The Marvels was going to happen and that Ms. Marvel would be a part of it.” What I didn’t know — and still don’t know — is what would happen in that film, but I have some ideas…”
She went on to say that she authored Season 1 “quite cognizant of that connectedness” and that the Marvels crew “had read all of [Ms. Marvel’s] scripts:”
“… I was quite conscious that we would be getting a young girl in Jersey City with no abilities, and we would have to prepare her for whatever happened in that movie.” So I was well aware of that connection, and by the time they became serious about that feature, most of our screenplays had already been completed. So they’d read all of our scripts and knew exactly what would happen to her. They kept all of that in mind while making their film, but I’d want to know what happens in their plot.”
The topic then went to Agent Cleary’s presence in the first episode, with the outlet asking the writer whether they were kept up to speed on what was going on in Spider-Man: No Way Home, given that’s where the character was last seen. “[They] didn’t receive dailies for Agent Cleary,” Ali said, adding it was a “[Marvel Studios president] Kevin [Feige] thing:”
“I don’t believe we got any daily for Agent Cleary.” Kevin does this. Kevin is aware of all of this, dude. That’s the thing about working with Marvel: he brought up the concept of Agent Cleary being a part of our program. Kevin and the executives are aware of all the components that we may not be aware of, so they’ll come in and say, “OK, you have this, so let’s express it via this piece, linking it with something else.” That’s the excitement of being a member of the MCU. So that’s clearly a Kevin repair.”
Was the writer given any guidelines before starting? According to Ali, they needed to “keep [it] ground level” and were on track from the start:
“It wasn’t like, ‘This is the limit of what you can accomplish.'” It was more like, ‘OK, maybe go a little bit further in this way.’ Our limits were to keep things ground level, and happily, I was on board with that from the start. Kamala Khan is this generation’s people’s hero. She embodies many of today’s fans who have grown up with a decade of Marvel movie narrative. So that was a crucial factor, and the thing I always wanted to accomplish from my proposal ahead was to make this entirely about her character. The visual narrative, the manner in which [the authors] told the tale, the abilities, and the relationships are all about Kamala’s inner life, psychology, and journey. So it was every creative’s guiding light from the start, and we were all on the same page.”
Ms. Marvel Has Her Eyes Set on Captain Marvel
Many fans may be curious after hearing how the cast of Ms. Marvel had no clue what was in store for Kamala Khan in the future.
After two episodes, many people may be wondering how this lady from New Jersey ended up in space with Carol Danvers. It’s like imagining Peter Parker heading to space directly after Spider-Man: Homecoming—to confront Josh Brolin’s Thanos, no less.
A significant link between the program and the film will most likely be related to Kamala’s abilities. There is already a gap between her Inhuman origins in the comics, and there aren’t many indicators that it will be filled. Needless to say, when it comes to filling up her roots, the sky’s the limit.
Kamala’s new light constructions will very probably play a role in her involvement with The Marvels. They definitely seem cosmic, and Kamala doesn’t quite comprehend them—a development that may surely catch Carol Danvers’ attention.
Ms. Marvel’s first two episodes are currently available globally on Disney+, and The Marvels will be released in cinemas on July 28, 2023.
