During an interview with MTV News, Mindy Kaling revealed she has been in contact with Marvel about a project centered on Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel.
While Marvel Studios has yet to officially announce plans for the fourth phase of their cinematic universe, a number of fans are hoping Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel will be among the newcomers to make her MCU debut in the future. Those fans may have a reason to be optimistic about seeing Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel in the MCU as Mindy Kaling revealed she’s been in contact with Marvel about a project centered on the company’s first Muslim hero:
“I think the people I’ve spoken to Marvel about it are so excited about the character and I think that they’re trying to figure out what to do with it. I told them I would help in any way because I truly love her. They really seemed interested, and I think they will probably do something.”
Mindy Kaling added that the upcoming Disney+ streaming service could be a potential venue for Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel live-action screen debut:
“Now that there’s like this streaming service with them, it might be something like that, but I think they understand how much there is the excitement.”
In the comics, Kamala Khan takes up the Ms. Marvel mantle after her idol, Carol Danvers, becomes Captain Marvel. The teenage Pakistani American from Jersey City, New Jersey discovers that she has Inhuman genes and uses her shapeshifting abilities to protect her local community.

Here is the official synopsis for The Lion King:
Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion Kingstars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
The Lion King will be released in theaters on July 19, 2019.
