Today, Disney+ released the trailer and poster for Marvel Studios’ Ms. Marvel along with the news that the series will launch exclusively on the streaming service on June 8, 2022. The trailer gives viewers a first look at the MCU’s newest Super Hero as she tries to balance high-school life, her family, and her emerging superpowers (where have we heard that before?).
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?
Iman Vellani stars as Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel. The cast also includes Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Matt Lintz, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Nakli, Azhar Usman, Travina Springer, and Nimra Bucha.
Episodes are directed by Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah, Meera Menon, and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy. Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, and Bisha K. Ali are the executive producers. Co-executive producers for the series are Sana Amanat and Trevor Waterson, and Bisha K. Ali is the head writer.
Iman Vellani will reprise the role of Ms. Marvel in the upcoming MCU movie The Marvels, in which she’ll star alongside Brie Larson and Teyonah Parris. Directed by Nia DaCosta, The Marvels is set to be released on February February 17, 2023.
