Ms. Marvel is now deep in production for Disney+ in Atlanta, Georgia and several outlets have captured some images of lead Iman Vellani in character as Kamala Khan in her guise as Ms. Marvel.
The costume is very, very comics accurate. The series will follow the 16-year-old Muslim Pakistani-American Kamala Khan. She is from Jersey City and she ends up gaining shape-shifting superpowers. If shape-shifting is on the agenda, there is also a strong possibility it will tie into the upcoming Secret Invasion series from Marvel Studios and Disney+.
Rish Shah will co-star with Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Matt Lintz, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Nakli, Nimra Bucha and Alyy Khan. Alysia Reiner has also been listed in the cast but her role is being kept a secret so far.
In the same flurry of activity over the weekend there were behind-the-scenes photos from Hawkeye that showed Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye and Alaqua Cox’s Echo in costumes that were also similarly comics accurate.
If comics accuracy is still a thing at Marvel then we can’t wait to see what they do with the X-Men when they finally arrive. Both Ms Marvel and Hawkeye will be on Disney+ around the 4the quarter of the year as the televisual side of the MCU starts to build towards Secret Invasion.
