Ms. Marvel, Disney+’s anticipated MCU show, has apparently been postponed until 2022, despite Disney earlier claiming that it would premiere later this year.
The series will follow Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), a Pakistani American teen who gets superhuman abilities and takes on the title of Ms. Marvel from her idol, Carol Danvers, in the comics. Despite the fact that narrative elements are still being kept under wraps, the series’ makers have stated that it would be six episodes long.
Both Ms. Marvel and Hawkeye were supposed to come out in the second half of this year. Following WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Loki, the two shows would have completed Disney+’s five live-action MCU series in 2021.
Despite the fact that Disney released Hawkeye’s official release date last week, the studio has failed to provide an update on Ms. Marvel. With the end of the year approaching and Marvel’s release schedule jam-packed with new shows and movies, fans have been wondering where Ms. Marvel would fit in.
Ms. Marvel on Early 2022
Despite the fact that Disney has yet to make an official announcement, industry insiders appear to have information on the subject. “It is extremely safe to conclude at this point that Ms. Marvel is now on schedule for an early 2022 launch,” according to TV Line. Despite this revelation, no official release date for the show has been announced.
Ms. Marvel will be the first series in Disney+’s Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) library to follow a wholly new character. So far, all three (soon to be four) live-action Disney+ MCU shows have depended on pre-established heroes to ground spectators in a familiar environment, with secondary and tertiary characters developed out in connection to that main character (such as in the case of Loki and Sylvie).
In the case of Ms. Marvel, though, the show will focus on a completely new character who has yet to appear in any other MCU film.
The inherently serialized nature of television will hopefully give Ms. Marvel’s showrunners an opportunity to create a fan-favorite character in Kamala Khan before she ever even steps foot into a feature-length film.
