Ms. Marvel TV Series in the Works for Disney+
Ahead of the Disney+ Showcase taking place at D23 Expo later today, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that a Ms. Marvel TV series is officially in the works for the streaming platform, focusing on the relavaitely new, and fan-favorite character of Kamela Khan
British writer Bisha K. Ali (Four Weddings and Funeral) will reportedly write and act as showrunner for the series. An official announcement could come in just a few hours.
Though the Ms. Marvel moniker has been around for decades, originally the superhero name for Carol Danvers, the Khan character took on the name. A Pakistani-American, Khan joined the Marvel comics universe back in 2014 as a result of the Inhumans’ Terrigen Mists being released, triggering her shapeshifing powers. Not only is she capable of stretching her limbs to great lengths and widths, but she can also grow or shrink to incredible sizes. Khan is also inspired by Carol Danvers, who at that point had been “promoted” to the role of Captain Marvel, and decides to take on her old moniker of Ms. Marvel to fight crime and do good.
It’s unclear when series will make its debut on the streaming service, with Marvel Studios previously announcing a host of shows for the streaming platform from 2020 up until late 2021.
