kamala khan is one of the most popular next-generation characters in Marvel comics and soon we’ll have her in her own series within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, starring Iman Vellani as the teenage superhero from New Jersey. Initially scheduled for 2021, finally and after much waiting, we already know exactly when the series premieres on Disney +: the 8 of June.
Marvel has announced it with the release of the first trailer, the one that we see Kamala in action. To the rhythm of ‘Blinding Lights’ by The Weeknd, the preview shows a overtly youthful approach that sets it apart from most UCM titles with a high school story set in the world of superheroes. Like Kate Bishop in ‘Hawkeye’, Kamala is a fan of superheroes, specifically Captain Marvel (Brie Larson). As she navigates her family life, her first loves and her classes, Kamala acquires superpowers, adding a new responsibility to her already busy existence.
In addition, the study has also published the first poster of the series, with a very similar style to the comics of the Muslim superheroine created by G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona. In the poster we can see Ms. Marvel on a lamppost, supervising Manhattan from New Jersey, his place of residence.
Change in powers confirmed
Since the first promotional images were revealed months ago, there has been much speculation about what Kamala’s powers would look like in the series. In the comics, Kamala is an Inhuman, an altered race of human beings that was cast aside by the Marvel Cinematic Universe after the resounding failure of the ‘Inhumans’ series. After that, it seems that Marvel has chosen to find a new origin for Kamala’s special abilities.
In the trailer we see the teenager gaining her powers after putting on a mysterious bracelet. In the vignettes, Kamala can modify her body at will, expanding, compressing or deforming. One of her hallmarks is the creation of large fists with which to hit villains. In the trailer it is confirmed that these powers will be altered in the version for Disney +, adding a blue cosmic halo, in addition to the creation of a resplendent matter with which the superheroine can interact to move through the air.
