The new images have revealed Vellani’s Khan sporting her civilian clothes on set. Given filming has only just begun, it seems likely her character is yet to acquire her powers. For now, it is still uncertain how she will gain these new abilities. Reports have claimed the series will include her Inhuman origins, but this is yet to be officially confirmed.
Additionally, one of the final images features Vellani under cover of some kind, obscuring her suit. Her leg, which is uncovered, shows the red and blue colors, which are a notable feature of her costume. It seems likely this is an early version of her suit, so hopefully, fans can get a better glimpse of it soon.
Hailing from head writer Bisha K. Ali the series will introduce Kamala Khan to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ms. Marvel is one of many series Marvel Studios is developing for Disney+ to introduce new characters into the MCU, with the other shows being She-Hulk and Moon Knight.
