It looks like Iman Vellani is here to stay. According to a new report from Daniel RPK, Marvel Studios may have just given the green light to another season of Ms. Marvel, one of the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe series to drop on Disney+ and a hit with fans earlier this year. The show, centered around Vellani’s teenage hero Kamala Khan as she grows up in Jersey City, was initially believed to just be an origin story for the character. However, if true, this news would indicate Marvel has changed course and will alter the live-action title from “limited” to “ongoing.”
Vellani can next be seen in 2023’s The Marvels, a sequel to 2019’s Captain Marvel that features Khan teaming up with Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers and Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau after the trio’s powers begin to malfunction. It’s likely a second season of Ms. Marvel would pick up after the events of the film, with Khan resuming her personal life in New Jersey and continuing to grow into her new role as a superhero. There are plenty of loose threads left hanging from the first season that another batch of episodes could help resolve, taking the pressure off of future team-up films to do the heavy lifting when it comes to Kamala’s character arc within the MCU.
Aside from Vellani, the cast of Ms. Marvel includes Matt Lintz and Yasmeen Fletcher as friends Bruno and Nakia, as well as Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapoor, and Saagar Shaikh as members of the Khan family. Laurel Marsden, Rish Shah, and Aramis Knight also have supporting roles. Former Batgirl directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah directed most of the first season with Meera Menon and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy. Bisha K. Ali served as head writer.
