Having been exclusively reported earlier by The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige was on stage to confirm that a live-action series based on Ms. Marvel is in development at Disney+, bringing the character into the fold of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The series will focus on the latest incarnation of Ms. Marvel (first appeared in the comics in 1976 with Carol Danvers in that role), which is a teenager named Kamela Khan, Marvel’s first Muslim superhero to lead her own comic. Her identity as a Pakistani-American living in a religious family in New Jersey whilst trying to find her own way has been a major focus in the comics, which will be interesting to see how they develop that into a television series. Her abilities are described as polymorphous, meaning that she can stretch and have the ability to change her shape.
The series will be written by Bisha K. Ali, who will also serve as showrunner on the series. There was no announcement as to when the series could be released, nor any casting announcements, just an image of the series logo which you can see below and Feige revealed that Khan will also likely appear in the films.
