Marvel Might Be Adding A Muslim Superhero To Its On-screen Roster
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige told the BBC a movie including Ms. Marvel is "definitely sort-of in the works."
The fate of Earth's mightiest on-screen heroes is currently hanging in the balance, but it sounds like Marvel is already planning to expand the team.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told the BBC a movie including Ms. Marvel is "definitely sort-of in the works."
The version of Ms. Marvel he's referring to is Kamala Khan — a Muslim-American teenager from New Jersey.
Adding Khan to Marvel's on-screen roster would boost its diversity. The studio garnered tons of praise and box office glory for "Black Panther" earlier this year, which featured a virtually all-black cast. And Marvel's first female-led superhero movie, "Captain Marvel" starring Brie Larson, is scheduled to hit theaters in 2019.
Feige's comment is hardly official confirmation that we'll be seeing Khan on movie screens soon. But Marvel's been keeping pretty quiet about the future of its superheroes since "Avengers: Infinity War" ends on a big cliffhanger, so it's probably best to not expect too many announcements before that storyline wraps up next year.
