The future is in her hands
Marvel has finally released the first trailer for its long-awaited Ms. Marvel series. The original series, which hits Disney+ on June 8th, will debut Marvel’s first Muslim superhero.
Set to The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights”, the trailer introduces us to Kamala Khan, a seemingly ordinary teenage girl growing up in Jersey City, who is a huge fan of The Avengers. Perceived as a “weirdo” by her peers, Kamala endures many teenage antics including crushing on boys, bullying, and long talks with the guidance counselor.
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 — until she gets superpowers like the heroes she’s always looked up to.
Life gets better with superpowers, right?
Newcomer Iman Vellani plays the titular role, fending off heavy competition from an extensive search by Marvel Studios. The Walking Dead’s Matt Lintz will also star alongside Anjali Bhimani and Rish Shah.
