Live-Action ‘Ms. Marvel’ on Disney+? Say Thank You to Our Mouse Overlord!
The latest buzz from D23 is that Ms. Marvel, also known as Kamala Khan, will have a series on Disney’s new streaming channel Disney+. All hail our Mouse Overlord! Praise!
We here at The Geekiary were very excited back in 2013 when Kamala Khan was introduced as Ms. Marvel, and we’ve been hoping and praying (and maybe sort of begging and pleading) for her to have a live-action movie or series based off her comic run. It seems we’ve been heard. Our hopes are being answered with a live-action series on Disney+.
While the original Ms. Marvel was introduced back in the 1970s with Carol Danvers, the mantle was passed to Kamala Khan fairly recently (as far as comic book history goes, anyway). It was considered a fairly bold move by Marvel, giving the title to a young Muslim Pakistani-American. Since her introduction, the series has become enormously popular, making it on the New York Times Bestsellers list multiple times. The series also won a Hugo Award in 2015.
Fans on Twitter are already excited about the potential material.
One problem I have with the movies is we rarely see the day to day lives of heroes. The day to day life of ms. Marvel is one of the most fascinating things about the g willow Wilson run

No news yet on when the series will appear on Disney+. While you wait, why not read her comic book series? The hardcover Ms. Marvel volume 5 is scheduled to be released on August 27, 2019.
Created by editors Sana Amanat and Stephen Wacker, writer G. Willow Wilson, and artists Adrian Alphona and Jamie McKelvie, Kamala Khan’s story is currently being written by Saladin Ahmad in his Magnificent Ms. Marvel comic book run. Issue 6 came out last Wednesday.
Information at this time is rather sparse, but we are no less excited with the possibilities! Feel free to share your thoughts with us.
