Laurel Marsden Joins Disney+’s ‘Ms. Marvel’
We are in the new era of Marvel Studios storytelling. WandaVision has redefined our understanding of what makes a Marvel story. It will also be the first of many that are heading our way. Among them is the story of the Inhuman Ms. Marvel. It will bring the character of Kamala Khan into the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe. We got a brief snippet of the series during Disney’s Investors Day, but it has gone quiet since while production continues. Luckily, it seems that The Hollywood Reporter got their hands on some info, as Laurel Marsden is joining the series.
The actress has recently appeared in Survive. It aired on the now shut down service Quibi service. It kickstarted her career to get a larger role, such as the upcoming Marvel Studios show. She will play Zoe Zimmer, who got introduced in 2014’s Ms. Marvel No. 3. She is a bully character but also ends up bonding with Kamala. As THR points out, she is the first character to get saved by Kamala in the comic, so she also pushed the young hero to embrace her role.
The show has no release date but most likely will get released later in the year. We are only a month away from the release of Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Loki is set to arrive in May. Hopefully, we might get a few new trailers once we near the release of the Gods of Mischief’s show. We will certainly keep an eye out for any potential set photos that may give us a small glimpse of where they are going with this story.
