Marvel Studios’ all-new original series follows a young Muslim American teen growing up in Jersey City who discovers that high school is tough for everyone, even those with Super Powers; the show debuts June 8.
Disney+ just dropped a poster and trailer introducing the MCU’s newest Super Hero, Ms. Marvel, a Muslim American teenager growing up in Jersey City. The trailer gives viewers a first look at Kamala (aka Ms. Marvel) as she tries to balance high-school life, her family, and her emerging Super Powers. As if high school isn’t tough enough!
According to Disney+, the all-new original series, which premieres June 8, follows Kamala Khan, who appears to be a normal teenager, that is, until she gets Super Powers. An avid gamer, a voracious fan-fiction scribe, and a Super Hero mega fan with an oversized imagination (especially when it comes to Captain Marvel!), she feels like she doesn’t fit in at school and sometimes even at home. Suddenly she gets Super Powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life gets better with super powers, 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 Ali is the head writer.
