LOS ANGELES: A few set photos from the upcoming series Ms Marvel have surfaced online revealing the costume of Iman Vellani’s superhero.
The costume is remarkably comic-accurate and looks great despite any post-production changes that will be applied later. The look is very similar to the comics version of the character in the red and blue uniform.
Created by Bisha K. Ali, Ms Marvel also stars Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Matt Lintz, Mohan Kapur, Zenobia Shroff, among others. Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar also filmed for an MCU project recently which could be Ms Marvel.
Iman, a Canadian born to Pakistani immigrants, will play the role of the Pakistani-American teenager called Kamala Khan, who becomes a superhero called Ms Marvel.
The Kamala Khan iteration of Ms Marvel is a relative newcomer in the world. The character debuted in a 2015 comic series by G Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona. She was the first Muslim Marvel superhero to have her own comic series.
Belonging to Jersey City, New Jersey, in comics, Kamala took up the title of Ms Marvel after Carol Danvers, her idol, became Captain Marvel. She has shape-shifting powers due to her inhuman lineage after the exposure to Terrigen Mist.
The synopsis explains, “A great student, an avid gamer, and a voracious fanfiction scribe, she has a special affinity for superheroes, particularly Captain Marvel. But Kamala struggles to fit in at home and at school–that is, until she gets superpowers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life is easier with superpowers, right?”
Brie Larson played the role of Carol Danvers or Captain Marvel in the film of the same name and reprised it in ‘Avengers: Endgame’. Ms Marvel will arrive on Disney+ Hotstar in late 2021.
