Ms Marvel is also known as Kamala Khan, 16 year old Pakistani-American girl who finds her superpowers at her high school party. In addition, Evangeline Lily stars as The Wasp in the upcoming "Ant-Man and the Wasp", and Brie Larson is set to play a female Captain Marvel in 2019.

And now, it appears their cinematic #GalaxyofWomen may be growing one female superhero larger with the possibility of Ms. Marvel's story being made into a film, according to longtime movie producer Kevin Feige. "We have plans for that once we introduce Captain Marvel", Feige says.

Ms. Marvel's appearance on the big screen would be a huge stride for Muslim representation, and for women in general, in the MCU and in film culture at large.


"We're doing Captain Marvel right now". Imagine how important Ms. Marvel's role will be for the future of the MCU and as well as to the Asian community.

In fact, Marvel recently joined with NetEase to further push their racial diversity in the form of their new Chinese super hero, Lin Lie, who will be part of the Sword Master and Aero comic book. In the interview, Kevin confirmed that there's something "definitely sort of in the works" for the character. Now, we learnt the studio is already working on bringing another superheroine on board named Ms Marvel, aka Kamala Khan, who, in the comics, was inspired to do superhero work by Captain Marvel.

Meanwhile, Ben Mendelsohn, who will star as the villain in the "Captain Marvel" movie, previously claimed that Brie is the flawless choice for the role of the Marvel superhero. She makes them look like a breeze and makes us wonder if she is actually a real-life super-hero. In the human world, she writes fan fiction about her favourite superheroes, hangs out with her best friend at the local convenience store, struggles to stay awake in classes and at the mosque.
