Is Ms. Marvel ever coming back to the MCU? Iman Vellani recently spoke on her future as the iconic hero after The Marvels box office troubles.

Despite The Marvels struggling to find its footing at the box office, fans almost universally agreed that Iman Vellani was a highlight of the film. However, the rocky return on investment the film represents left many fans wondering if the actress’ time as Ms. Marvel was finally over. When asked about this during the recent Anime Awards, Vellani assured fans and critics alike that she would eventually return to the MCU.

“I have been assured,” Vellani explained to Polygon, “So that feels good, but there was no more assurance than that. [laugh] They give me breadcrumbs, and I try and make a meal out of it.”

Given one of the big post-credits scenes of The Marvels teased Ms. Marvel forming her own “Young Avengers” team, it isn’t exactly shocking that Iman Vellani would have some form of future in the MCU. Regardless, it’s a relief to see that such a perfect actress for the role isn’t left behind because of some box office blues.

The talent behind The Marvels

The Marvels is set to be a groundbreaking film in many ways. Not only does it feature three powerful female superheroes, but it also has a female director, Nia DaCosta, who previously directed the horror flick Candyman. The movie features a cast that includes Zawe Ashton, Park Seo-joon, Saagar Shaikh, Zenobia Shroff, and Mohan Kapur.

“She has a really calm vibe, too,” Iman Vellani said about DaCosta. “These movies are not easy to make at all. There’s like a million, bajillion little moving pieces. She and [executive producer] Mary [Livanos] did such a great job to keep morale high. Even if there were days where they wanted to rip people’s heads off, they would never show it and never put their stress on anyone else.”

In addition to directing The Marvels, Nia DaCosta also co-wrote the script alongside Megan McDonnell, Elissa Karasik, and Zeb Wells. During an interview, DaCosta described the movie as being “full comic book madness,” teasing what audiences can expect from the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe project.
