The first reactions to the Disney Plus series Ms. Marvel has hit the web ahead of the show’s debut.
Critics were recently treated to the first two episodes of the upcoming Disney Plus series Ms. Marvel, which sees 19-year-old newcomer Iman Vellani taking on the role of Kamala Khan, one of the most recent creations of comic book veterans G. Willow Wilson, Sana Amanat, Adrian Alphona and Jamie McKelvie. Reactions to the episodes surfaced online this morning, giving fans an idea of what to expect from the latest Marvel Studios production. Check out some of the reactions below.
Earlier this month, Marvel’s Kevin Feige sang the praises of Iman Vellani and compared the Kamala Khan actress to Spider-Man star Tom Holland, revealing that she is also a huge fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “She carries this Unabomber notebook with her everywhere, with her scribbles and ideas. And why wouldn’t we want to hear them? Not just because she’s playing the lead… she’d be commenting on the show online,” Feige told Empire.
The Disney Plus series is another win for Marvel Studios
Based on the reactions, Marvel has created another hit, folllowing up on the success of its latest Disney Plus series Moon Knight starring Oscar Isaac. Marvel’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has also been killing it at the box office, having earned more than $800 million worldwide as it wraps up its third week in theaters.
Here is the synopsis for the new MCU series:
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?
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 were directed by Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah, Meera Menon and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, with Bisha K. Ali serving as the head writer.
