Ms. Marvel Adds The Walking Dead’s Matt Lintz as Bruno Carrelli

According to Murphy’s Multiverse, The Walking Dead actor Matt Lintz has been tapped for a key role opposite lead star Iman Vellani in Disney+’s highly-anticipated MCU series Ms. Marvel. Lintz is reportedly playing the role of Kamala Khan’s best friend Bruno Carrelli, who in the comics is described as a kid with a genius level intellect and is one of the few people who has knowledge of Kamala’s secret superhero identity.

In addition, new behind-the scenes photos from the Atlanta set of Ms. Marvel have been released again (via Twitter), featuring the titular star clad in a Captain Marvel-inspired costume while also giving us a first look at Lintz’s Bruno Carrelli. Check out the photos below!

The Ms. Marvel series was first confirmed at last year’s D23 event, with British writer Bisha K. Ali (Four Weddings and a Funeral) attached to write and showrun the series, while Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige also confirmed that she along with Moon Knight and She-Hulk will all eventually make their way to the big screen.

Adil El Arbi, Bilall Fallah, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, and Meera Menon were recently brought on board to direct. El Arbi and Fallah broke out with American audiences with their work on the long-awaited third installment in the Will Smith and Martin Lawrence-starring franchise, Bad Boys for Life, helping launch it to be the highest-grossing and best-reviewed film in the franchise.

Obaid-Chinoy is an Oscar-winning documentarian best known for her work with A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness and Saving Face, while Menon is well-known for her work on the small screen with shows including You, For All Mankind and The Punisher.

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 shapeshifting 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.
