Muslim superhero film by Marvel 'in the works'

Muslim superhero film by Marvel 'in the works'

Captain Marvel will see Academy Award victor Brie Larsen take on the role in Marvel's first female fronted movie, and looks set to follow on from the dramatic events at the close of the record-breaking Avengers: Infinity War, which is still in cinemas.

Kamala Khan - a fictional Pakistani-American teenager from New Jersey - first donned the Ms Marvel costume in 2013.

"Captain Marvel right now is shooting right now with Brie Larson". In the aftermath of Black Panther's breakout success, there's been talk of female-centric spinoffs; meanwhile, we're also getting a standalone movie for Captain Marvel (played by Brie Larson).

Avengers Infinity War producer Kevin Feige told the media that, "Ms. Marvel... is definitely sort of in the works".

Why does everybody want Priyanka Chopra as Ms. Marvel?

What makes Ms. Marvel (whose real name is Kamala Khan) so unbelievable is that not only is she a great female superhero, but she's Muslim as well.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has confirmed there are "plans" to introduce Ms. Marvel into the MCU after Captain Marvel. It's a struggle we've all faced in one form or another, and isn't just particular to Kamala because she's Muslim.

The year 2018 has been completely owned by Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Okay, before you get too excited, let us remind you that she only voiced a superhero.

With the Captain Marvel film scheduled for next year and the post-credit scene hook letting us know that Carol Danvers is going to be a massive part of whatever comes next for our Avengers and Thanos showdown, it's not a surprise that people are asking about Ms. Marvel.

Since the announcement the internet has been sent into meltdown with comic book fans speculating over who should play the teen icon.

However, Chopra, who is sort of in the Marvel universe already due to her voice role in the mobile video game "Marvel: Avengers Academy", is Indian, a detail that some fans pointed out.
