Iman Vellani shared her reaction to being a main character in The Marvels, starring Brie Larson.

Before Ms. Marvel‘s episodes started dropping on Disney Plus, we already knew that Iman Vellani would return as Kama Khan in The Marvels. The film will team Kamala Khan up with her hero, Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers, which has already completed filming.

Ms. Marvel Will Return Soon!

Not too much is known about the upcoming Captain Marel sequel other than the fact that it will feature Kamala Khan. In an interview with Variety, Iman Vellani recalled finding out that she would be in The Marvels as a central player while filming Ms. Marvel:

“It was a night shoot when they were announcing everything at Disney Investor Day. Right before they announced “The Marvels” cast, I get a text from Disney PR, I get a text from Brie Larson and I get a text from our producers all at the same time saying I’m in the movie and then they announced it on the screen. I was like, “Thank you.” I had a hunch I was going to be in it, but more of a cameo role, not an actual main character, so it was cool.”

Here is the synopsis for Ms. Marvel:

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 super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life gets better with super powers, right?

The upcoming MCU series Ms. Marvel stars Iman Vellani, Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Matt Lintz, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Fawad Khan, Mehwish Hayat, and Farhan Akhtar. Episodes of the series will be directed by Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah, Meera Menon, and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, with Bisha K. Ali serving as the head writer. Kevin Feige is involved in the series as an executive producer.

New Ms. Marvel episodes hit Disney Plus every Wednesday, while The Marvels will arrive in theaters on July 28, 2023. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the upcoming Disney Plus series, Kevin Feige, Iman Vellani, and Tom Holland, and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
