Ms. Marvel’s previous accolades
Ms. Marvel premiered on Disney+ in June 2022 as part of Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Head writer Bisha K. Ali created the six-episode series, with Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah serving as lead directors. Iman Vellani starred as Kamala Khan, a Captain Marvel superfan who becomes a hero in her own right.
Ms. Marvel previously took home Best Adaptation From a Comic Book/Graphic Novel at the 2022 Harvey Awards and Outstanding Achievement in Family Programming at the 39th TCA Awards. Additionally, Vellani won Best Performance by a Younger Actor (Streaming) at the 47th Saturn Awards.
Kamala Khan’s future in the MCU (and beyond)
Vellani recently reprised her role in the team-up feature film The Marvels, which hit theaters last month as part of Phase Five of the MCU. While it remains to be seen if Ms. Marvel will get a second season on Disney+, The Marvels made it clear that Vellani’s Kamala Khan has a big future ahead of her. The film concluded with Kamala beginning to put together her own team of Young Avengers — starting with Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop/Hawkeye.
Meanwhile, Vellani is currently making her mark on Marvel‘s comic book universe. The actor recently co-wrote the four-issue limited series Ms. Marvel: The New Mutant, which re-establishes the resurrected Kamala Khan as a member of the X-Men. Vellani and co-writer Sabir Pirzada (the latter of whom also worked on the Ms. Marvel television show) are returning to pen a follow-up series, Ms. Marvel: Mutant Menace, which launches next year.
Ms. Marvel is currently streaming on Disney+.
