Marvel officially confirms the MCU’s Ms. Marvel show for Disney+ will drop in late 2021. Here’s the full cast list for the show.
What is Ms. Marvel About?
Ms. Marvel is a forthcoming American streaming television series designed for Disney+ by Bisha K. Ali. It revolves around the Marvel Comics character Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel.
Within the Marvel Universe, Kamala Khan is a teenage Pakistani American from Jersey City, New Jersey. She stumbles upon her shapeshifting abilities and discovers that she has inhuman genes in the aftermath of the “Inhumanity” storyline. She takes on the mantle of Ms. Marvel from her idol Carol Danvers once Danvers becomes Captain Marvel.
MCU confirms a 2021 release date for the new MCU show on Disney+ along with the show’s full cast.
- Iman Vellani will play Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel
- Aramis Knight as Kareem / Red Dagger: A vigilante.
- Saagar Shaikh portrays Amir Khan: Kamala’s older brother.
- Rish Shah as Kamran
- Matt Lintz as Bruno Carrelli: Kamala’s best friend.
- Furthermore, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Naki, Azher Usman, Travina Springer, and Nimra Bucha are also the cast with undisclosed roles.
The cast announcement follows after the #FixMsMarvel trend blasting online due to some rumors on controversial casting decisions. This includes the possibility of Zenobia Shroff and Yasmeen Fletcher playing Muslim characters, Matt Lintz might be a possible Trump supporter in real-life. To add to this Andrew Brodeur is also a part of the cast in spite of multiple sexual harassment allegations.
Shroff, Fletcher, and Lintz are part of the list, so any issues with their probable participation and roles will continue to be a hot topic among fans. Shroff might star as Kamala’s mother, Fletcher to be Kamala’s friend Nakia Bahadir, and Lintz is thought to be Kamala’s best friend, Bruno Carrelli.
The late-2021 release for the show ensures that next year will fill us with MCU joy like never before. Delays in the release of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and WandaVision place both in early 2021. In the meantime, Loki is Marvel’s What If…?, and Hawkeye remains on schedule for 2021 releases as originally announced. Now that Ms. Marvel is confirmed for a 2021 debut – which was previously rumored based on some Hasbro toy listings – there will be six MCU shows launching on Disney+ next year.
