Ms. Marvel might be coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
In an interview with BBC, Marvel Studios' CEO Kevin Feige spoke about the possibility of the Muslim superhero coming to the big screen.
"Captain Marvel's shooting right now with Brie Larson," said Feige. "Ms. Marvel, which is another character in the comic books, the Muslim hero who is inspired by Captain Marvel, is definitely sort of in the works. We have plans for that once we introduce Captain Marvel."
Ms. Marvel, or Kamala Khan, is a fairly new character in Marvel Comics. She was introduced in 2013's Captain Marvel #14 as a fan of Captain Marvel aka Carol Danvers and later debuted in her own comic book Ms. Marvel #1. Unlike her superhero idol who has the powers of flight, energy, and super-strength, Ms. Marvel has the power of elasticity. Now, with Captain Marvel set to be introduced in the MCU next year, it seems Ms. Marvel won't be too far behind. If it happens, she'll likely play a role in the "new franchise" that Disney's CEO Bob Iger talked about last week as well.
"We meet on a regular basis with our Marvel team, and we’ve plotted out Marvel movies that will take us well into the next decade," Iger told The Hollywood Reporter. "I’m guessing we will try our hand at what I’ll call a new franchise beyond Avengers, but that doesn't necessarily mean you won’t see more Avengers down the road. We just haven’t made any announcements about that."
Captain Marvel, who was one of the major easter eggs during the end credit scene during Avengers: Infinity War, is slated to arrive in theaters on March 6, 2019.
