While it isn’t clear if it will be for television or films, Joe Quesada has teased that Marvel is planning something big down the line for ‘Ms. Marvel‘. As one of the rising stars in Marvel’s comic world, the company’s first Pakistani superhero has taken over reader’s hearts and imaginations. Kamala Khan is a young girl in a coming of age story where morals and life factor in to be just as important as saving the day. The brilliant writing and character development have built up a solid fan base and Quesada knows that this comic run is going to be an important factor in growing the character going forward.
According to Quesada,
If Marvel is a wheel, comics are the hub and everything else spokes out. Movies, TV … they’re all spokes of the wheel. If you want to know what the future is, in the movies, television, video games, animation — pick up the comics, because there’s a very good possibility that the stuff you’re reading today will eventually find itself — or a version of it — in one of our media outlets. Could be next year, four, five years from now, maybe 10 years from now.
Sadly, they aren’t clear on what direction that they’ll be taking the character quite yet. She’s already made her debut animated appearance in ‘Avengers: Ultron Revolution‘ though I suspect her cinematic appearance is going to be a big further out. While Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ have established The Inhumans in continuity, one of the major cornerstones of her superhero persona is that she wants to emulate her personal hero, Captain Marvel. With Carol Danvers not yet being introduced, they are either going to have to push her introduction past that or establish a new reason for her iconic name and look.
Of course they could just introduce her in a ‘New Warriors’ television show where Squirrel Girl is rumored to be introduced at.
While a Netflix series would be my preferred choice for television and her location making it feasible that she could be near enough to Hell’s Kitchen for a crossover to happen, I would really like to see her show up on the big screen.
Whatever direction they take her character in though is still very much up in the air.
Who knows where Ms. Marvel’s going to end up? You can be sure that, somewhere down the road, she will be a part of the future of Marvel in other media.
Would you prefer to see Ms. Marvel show up on television or on film? Do you think that they’ll need to wait until after Captain Marvel has debuted to really even think about the character? Share your thoughts below True Believers?
