Marvel 'has plans' for first Muslim American superhero character
World | culture | 10:42, 16 May 2018 | 691

AKIPRESS.COM - Muslim superhero Ms Marvel – AKA Kamala Khan – will become a prominent figure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Marvel president Kevin Feige confirmed Marvel “has plans” for the character.

In an interview with the BBC, Feige said that “Ms Marvel ... the Muslim hero who is inspired by Captain Marvel, is definitely sort of in the works.”

Feige provided no further details, other than the suggestion that Ms Marvel’s appearance will follow the Captain Marvel movie, starring Brie Larson and due for release in 2019. That film, which features Larson as Carol Danvers, is Marvel’s first female-led film and was originally titled Ms Marvel (as Danvers was termed in the comic-book publication in 1977). Ms Marvel’s identity was switched to Khan in 2014, and was Marvel’s first Muslim lead character.

Marvel tends to debut characters in larger ensemble movies before moving them to standalone features; the studio is working on a sequel to Avengers: Infinity War in which Captain Marvel will play a part. The film is also due for release in 2019.
