Moon Knight might have just ended up on Disney+ and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is soaring in theaters now, however, one mustn’t forget another exciting entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe on the horizon, ie. Ms. Marvel.
At the time of this writing, we are exactly one month away from the premiere of the Disney+ series, and in order to mark the countdown, Marvel Studios has finally released an all-new one-month teaser for the show just to remind fans that we will soon witness the staring of a new marvel. You can check it out below.
Ms. Marvel Will Be The First Muslim MCU Hero
Ms. Marvel stars Iman Vellani as Ms. Marvel/Kamala Khan. Vellani will also make an appearance as the titular character in Nia DaCosta’s The Marvel’s in 2023 and Vellani has earlier spoken about how significant it is to see a Muslim Pakistani character represented in the MCU.

“The fact that the show is being made and they’re including this character in the MCU is [what’s important],” Vellani said. “I don’t really have to go out of my way to talk about being a Muslim and being Pakistani — it all comes out in the show. People seeing a person like me involved in a project as big as this is, I think, inspiring enough.”
Ms. Marvel Will Be Vellani’s Debut
Ms. Marvel will serve as the acting debut of Vellani, something she still hasn’t gotten over yet. She has previously talked about how weird it is to see herself on screen, but also revealed that it’s “terrifying, but in a fun way.”
“It’s weird. It’s really weird,” Vellani said. “Watching yourself is like the most cursed thing ever. Like, I don’t know what I look like, and I realize that now. Like, you know what you look like, but you don’t. Like you don’t know what you look like when you eat, when you’re happy, when you’re sad, or when you run—running is the worst, in my opinion. Yeah, it’s terrifying, but in a fun way.”
The description for Ms. Marvel is as follows: “Marvel Studios’ “Ms. Marvel” is a new, original series that introduces Kamala Khan, a Muslim American teenager growing up in Jersey City. An avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, Kamala is a Super Hero mega-fan with an oversized imagination—particularly when it comes to Captain Marvel. Yet Kamala feels like she doesn’t fit in at school and sometimes even at home—that is until she gets superpowers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life gets better with superpowers, right?”
