Disney+ series Ms. Marvel is coming to theaters in Pakistan to celebrate the first Pakistani superhero joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy shared the news on her Instagram account, saying “BIG ANNOUNCEMENT, I have exciting news to share: An Eid present for #Pakistan!! We are bringing Ms Marvel to theatres across the country!!

She added, “The Walt Disney Company and Marvel Studios have a special announcement to make. Marvel Studios’ new original series “Ms Marvel” will be released exclusively in cinemas only in Pakistan, through their licensee HKC Entertainment.”

Disney decided to release the whole series exclusively in theaters in Pakistan, since the country still doesn’t have access to Disney+.

While the rest of the world will follow Ms. Marvel one chapter at a time, Pakistani fans of the MCU will be able to watch the entire show in cinemas, split into three sessions of two episodes each.

According to Obaid-Chinoy, Episodes 1 and 2 will debut on June 16, with the remaining episodes being released every two weeks. That means Episodes 3 and 4 will debut on June 30 , and Episodes 5 and 6 will debut on July 14.

The theatrical release dates overlap with the Disney+ releases of Episodes 2, 4, and 6, respectively. The measure is probably in place to prevent leaks, since Pakistani theaters will only screen episodes that are already online on Disney+.

Starring Iman Vellani in the titular role, Ms. Marvel follows a teenager who sees her wildest dream come true once she gets superpowers. The series will also explore the Pakistani heritage for which Marvel Studios brought many artists on board for the show, including director Obaid-Chinoy.

Ms. Marvel’s will also introduce Aramis Knight as a vigilante named Red Dagger, Saagar Shaikh as Kamala’s older brother Amir Khan, and Matt Lintz as Kamala’s best friend Bruno Carrelli. Zenobia Shroff and Mohan Kapur also appear as Kamala’s parents.

The series cast also includes Rish Shah, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Nakli, Azhar Usman, Alysia Reiner, Fawad Khan, Travina Springer, Nimra Bucha, Alyy Khan, and Anjali Bhimani. Ms. Marvel is set to debut on Disney+ on June 8.
