“Ms. Marvel” won’t hit Disney+ until the second half of 2022 — and that’s the earliest estimation.
Per ComicBook.com, Disney executives said in an earnings call Wednesday that “Ms. Marvel” — as well as the “Star Wars” show “Andor” — won’t hit Disney+ until the second quarter of 2022.
- The company said the show would appear sometime in the July, August or September range, according to ComicBook.com.
- The series will follow Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), a beloved teen superhero who goes by the name Ms. Marvel. Her character is set to return in “The Marvels,” the sequel to “Captain Marvel.”
“Ms. Marvel” will center around Kahn, who is a Pakistani American teen from New Jersey, who becomes a superhero. Her character — who debuted in the Marvel comics in 2014 — was Marvel’s first Muslim superhero to get their own comic book, as I wrote for the Deseret News.
- “The new Ms. Marvel tackles both stereotypes of both oppressed Muslim women and terrorists,” she wrote at the time. “Many Muslim women choose not to wear a hijab, and Kamala’s character is one of them. She carries her U.S. history book side by side with a book on prophet Mohammed’s sayings and another book on illustration and design. Her creators claim she was born ‘out of a desire to explore the Muslim-American diaspora from an authentic perspective.’ They would know because they, too, have had to navigate their way of being Muslim and American.”
