As fans wait for a release date for Ms. Marvel (and the rest of Marvel Studios 2022 Disney Plus slate), it seems another member of the cast may have been discovered. Actress Mehwish Hayat, described as one of Pakistan’s leading actresses in her IMDB profile, seems to have joined the cast of the series alongside fellow Pakistani actors Fawad Khan and Nimra Bucha.
The rumor comes way of the Express Tribune, which clearly stated that the casting is not confirmed at this point. According to the Tribune, they were able to deduce that Hayat had a role in the series after first mistakenly believing that one her co-stars on Punjab Nahi Jaungi would be in Ms. Marvel. Once that was cleared up, they site made the connection to Hayat and went from there.
While Khan’s role in the series is unknown at the time, it’s been speculated that he might be playing one of the villains of the series, the Clan Destine, so it’s possible that Hayat may be joining him as one of the family.
Ms. Marvel is set for a streaming debut in Summer of 2022.
