First look at Iman Vellani as Captain Marvel in the Disney+ series

November 19th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Looks like we have our first look at Kamala Khan, actress Iman Vellani, thanks to a new image from the set of the now filming Disney+ MsMarvel series.

And she seems to be wearing a very familiar outfit in the shape of Captain Marvel’s suit or one pretty similar. I’d also go out on a limb and say that’s Maria Rambeau’s home in the background.

More big casting news for the MCU tonight as it seems that one of the most ‘eyes on’ roles have been cast.

We’ve known for a while that Disney+ was set to bring us a Ms Marvel series with Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Meera Menon  directing the series and now we have the name to go with the series with newcomer Vellani starring as Kamala Khan, “a Pakistani-American teen based in New Jersey. Ms. Marvel first appeared in 2014 as Marvel’s first Muslim character to star in her own title, and she will become Marvel Studios’ first onscreen Muslim hero. Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has said that in addition to appearing on the small screen, Kamala Khan will be included in future Marvel films.”

Ms Marvel joins Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, She-Hulk, Moon Knight and Nick Fury in the much anticipated small screen presence of the MCU.

Thoughts on the image? Are you looking forward to seeing the series? Let me know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
