Marvel has just released the trailer for the second big Disney+ series of the year. Ms. Marvel will see an ordinary girl go through the process of becoming a superhero while struggling with her own teenage life. This will be somewhat similar to the likes of Spider-Man but there will be a close parallel to the outer-worldly superior being Captain Marvel. We had only gotten to see a sizzle reel for the series so far and now we have a complete trailer to get an idea of the project. Let’s take a look at the first Ms Marvel trailer and its official poster.
The series will be based on Kamala Khan created by Sana Amanat, Stephen Wacker, G. Willow Wilson, Adrian Alphone, and Jamie McKelvie for the Marvel comics. This character is quite fresh compared to most of the other characters. It will mark the first time a Muslim character will be the protagonist in a Marvel project and at the same time feature a wholly fresh Muslim cast of characters. This will allow Marvel fans to get a chance to witness a completely new lifestyle in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Things are going to get a lot more interesting Kamala Khan actress Iman Vellani as she will also be joining the Captain Marvel sequel, The Marvels.
First Ms Marvel Trailer
Marvel has released the official trailer for their next big Disney+ project of the year, Ms. Marvel. The trailer uses a lot of the scenes that we got to see in the sizzle reel that was released before. There is a certain tone to the series that fits the idea of the series being centered around a teenager going through her life. We can clearly see that she is a fan of Captain Marvel and all things gaming and fan fiction. Not only that there is a certain element in the visuals of the trailer that makes it quite similar to the fan-favorite Scott Pilgrim vs. The World movie.
According to the official synopsis of Ms. Marvel:
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 invisible both at home and at school—that is, until she gets super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life gets better with super powers, right?

Marvel also released the first official poster for the series along with the trailer. This poster is actually taken from the final moment from the trailer where Ms. Marvel could be seen sitting on a lamp post. While the project will be based in America we will get to see a lot of cultural elements for the character of Kamala Khan being shown through the narrative. This won’t be the only exciting bit about the series because it will also focus majorly on how the character struggles with her school life. There is also some reveal in the trailer regarding certain elements of her powers that we will see in the series.
In the comics, Kamala Khan’s enemies range from big baddies to street-level criminals. We can imagine that we will get to see a lot more of the street criminals aspect of her narrative in the series. According to Sana Amanat, creator of the character herself:
She’s grown so much in the last four years and the diversity of our fanbase alone is so impressive. They all love Ms. Marvel. It goes to show we have a really great story with great creators. I think it’s incredibly important that we tell young women and young girls that they have this incredible power within themselves, and that they have heroes out there [who] … they can look up to, especially in these times.
Kamala will be joined by Bruno Carrelli, played by Matt Lintz, Kamala’s friend who is aware of the secret of her superpowers. We will also get to see Aramis Knight as the vigilante Kareem aka Red Dagger. The other characters in the cast include Amir Khan, Kamala’s brother played by Saagar Shaikh, Kamala’s mother Muneeba Khan, played by Zenobia Shroff, and Kamala’s father Yusuf Khan, played by Mohan Kapur. Bisha K. Ali will act as the head writer for the series with Adil El Arbi, Bilall Fallah, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, and Meera Meno serving as directors through season one.
Ms. Marvel will start streaming on Disney+ from June 8.
