Kamala Khan is finally making the leap from the comic book pages to the screen. Marvel's first Muslim superhero is coming to Disney for a new series of adventures.
“Her culture and her religion do not define her; it's just different aspects of his life, like mine, "says Canadian actress Iman Vellani, who lends her features to the now famous character.
“I get up, I go to school, I pray, I eat...these are all routine daily actions. Kamala Khan is a teenage girl who loves superheroes, and she happens to be a Muslim of Pakistani descent,” she continued, during a virtual press conference.
Fans of the wonderful world of Marvel - which stretches its tentacles in the comic books as well as on the big and small screen - are already well acquainted with the character of Kamal Khan. The heroine debuted in 2013 in the pages of one of Captain Marvel's adventures.
" Inevitable "
It took almost 10 years for producer Kevin Feige to bring his story to the screen. If this name is familiar to you, it is because it is behind the cinematic adventures of some of the greatest superheroes, from the X-Men to Black Panther, including Thor, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Blade and other Daredevil.
“I always knew Kamala Khan would get her turn. As soon as her first comics were published, we were continually asked when we were going to bring her to the screen. It was inevitable, and in the most beautiful way possible,” he said.
Miss Marvel will come in six episodes, added weekly to Disney's catalog. These will serve as a preamble to the film The Marvels, expected on our screens in the summer of 2023.
The first episode of Miss Marvel is available on Disney since Wednesday.
