Marvel Cast Newcomer Iman Vellani As ‘Ms. Marvel’ Disney+ Series



I’ve been off the grid for a few days so I’m catching up with all the news I’d missed whilst on my staycation.

During my time away, Deadline broke the news that after a “long and hard search” Marvel have found their Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel in newcomer Iman Vellani, who will star in the new Disney+ series along with future MCU films (Captain Marvel 2 perhaps?).

Created by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Scott Hepburn, Ms. Marvel made her comic debut in 2012. She is a Pakistani-American superheroe who protects the streets of Jersey City. She possess the ability to stretch her limbs, shape-shift and grow or shrink to almost any size.

Bisha K. Ali (Four Weddings and a Funeral) is penning the series. Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (Bad Boys For Life), Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy (3 Bahadur) and Meera Menon (Outlander) have all been announced as directors on the series.
