The folks at Marvel Animation are nothing if not ambitious. The latest proof of that ambition is ‘Marvel Rising’. Launched earlier this year, the multiplatform animated project showcases a new generation of Marvel characters. Among that new generation are the likes of Inferno, Squirrel Girl, and perhaps most exciting of all, Ms. Marvel. Introduced in 2013, the Kamala Khan iteration of Ms. Marvel was immediately embraced by comic readers. In short order, she made the jump to animation in the form of guest appearances on ‘Avengers Assemble’ and ‘Spider-Man’. Now, with ‘Marvel Rising’, she makes her full-time debut as a member of the series’ core cast.
While at New York Comic Con, we had the chance to speak with several of the ‘Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors’ cast and crew. Among them was Kathreen Khavari, who has voiced Kamala in all of her animated appearances to date. In the course of our chat, Khavari elaborated on Kamala’s role in the film, bringing a beloved character to life, and more.
