Kevin Feige on Iman Vellani’s Influence on ‘Ms. Marvel’

Iman Vellani has the challenging task of taking on the role of Kamala Khan, Marvel’s first Muslim-American superhero. The character made headlines when she first was revealed back in 2014 and now Vellani will lead the new Ms. Marvel Disney+ show. While she’s a relative newcomer, she made quite the impression when she auditioned for the role.

It seems that she prepared a hand-written list of 50 questions regarding the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which she handed to Kevin Feige on the set of Ms. Marvel. It seems he still has kept the list to this day that includes “really granular stuff.” He goes on to compare her to Tom Holland and his passion for the franchise.

Much like Tom Holland and Peter Parker, Iman is a much bigger Marvel fan than we realized.

It’s great to see actors involved with the project share the same passion that not only fans do but the many people behind the scenes trying to bring the franchise to life. He highlighted that she also played an important part in giving her input as the show evolves.

She carries this Unabomber notebook with her everywhere, with scribbles and ideas. And why wouldn’t we want to hear them? Not just because she’s playing the lead, but because if she wasn’t playing the lead, she’d be commenting on the show online. So better comment before the show’s done, and try to incorporate the best of those ideas.

It certailny sounds like she was a bundle of energy during the Disney+ seris production, perfectly showcasing the same mentality that the comic’s Kamala Khan has. The way he described it is better she comments while they’re working on it is a sweet moment and we’ll see what ideas of hers made it into the final product once it aris in June.
