During the D23 Expo, Marvel Studios made a slew of announcements of shows that would be joining Disney+. Kamala Khan, also known as Ms. Marvel, will be among the few new superheroes getting their own show on Disney’s new streaming service. Since then, Marvel has not wasted time getting started and is eyeing a production date for the young Muslim hero.
According to Discussing Film, Marvel Studios is looking at September of 2020 to begin production for the series. Ms. Marvel will be the first of three new shows announced at D23 to head to Disney+. Moon Knight and She-Hulk will join with TV series of their own on the streaming service.
Khan, a Pakistani American from New Jersey, comes across these powers that allow her to have the ability to stretch her body and change her shape. She is also the first Muslim superhero to star in her own titular comic book series. In the comics, Khan is an Inhuman. It will be interesting to see if the show will introduce that element or not especially after the failure of Inhumans, a Marvel TV series, on ABC.
Bisha K. Ali, best known for her work as a writer on Hulu’s Four Weddings and a Funeral remake, will serve as showrunner for the series. With Ali in the fold, casting is sure to begin shortly. Marvel is currently looking for an unknown actor to bring Kamala Khan to life on Disney+.
