‘Ms. Marvel’: Red Dagger Actor Aramis Knight Sighted in Bangkok
Even as WandaVision airs its final episode, we have a lot more Disney+ goodness heading our way from Marvel Studios. It is only the first of potentially six shows that will premiere this year. Among them is the introduction of the young teenager Kamala Khan, who will don the title Ms. Marvel. Idolizing Carol Danvers, she tries to grow into her own as a hero, especially after a Terrigenisis bomb hits New Jersey. She gains the latent Inhuman ability to control her mass. Newcomer Iman Vellani has taken on the titular role and is busy filming the project.
Around two weeks ago, we found out that the production would be heading to Bangkok to continue filming. It is quite a surprise to see them choosing Thailand as their next filming location. As such, we theorized it could get utilized as a backdrop for Badin, the hometown for Kareem, a.k.a. Red Dagger. Well, it seems that this theory might have panned out, as Aramis Knight, who will play the young vigilante, has revealed he is in the city. It confirms that the production is heading to the Thailand capital. The short video confirming his arrival was shared by @cosmic_marvel on Twitter.

Knight‘s arrival in this filming location does strongly help the theory that the famous Thailand capital will serve as a backdrop. The actor is of Pakistani descent and the character’s introduction in the comics was of him protecting his neighborhood. He also builds up a romantic connection with Kamala, which may build up as he teaches her his ways of keeping his home safe. Very little is still known about the project, which might introduce the world to the Inhumans once again after they made their live-action debut in Agents of SHIELD.
