Marvel has plans for Pakistani-American superhero Ms Marvel: Mindy Kaling
Ms Marvel aka Kamala Khan, was created by G Willow Wilson, artist Adrian Alphona, and editors Sana Amanat and Stephen Wacker in 2014
In an interview, Indian-American actor Mindy Kaling has revealed that Marvel Studios is interested in bringing Ms Marvel aka Kamala Khan, a Pakistani-American superhero, to the silver screen.
"The people I've spoken to at Marvel are so excited about the character and I think they're trying to figure out what to do with her, and I told them I would help in any way because I truly love her. They really seemed interested, and I think they will probably do something. Now that there's this streaming platform (Disney+) with them, it might be something like that, but I think they understand how much excitement there is," she said.
While speculations ran rife that she will be a part of the project, Kaling took to Twitter later to clarify that she has no clue about the studio's plans.
Hi everyone, I love Ms. Marvel (aka Kamala Khan) and the geniuses behind her @GWillowWilson @MiniB622 @Marvel, but I have no information about any tv or film adaptation! Wish I did though, when that hits the screen it’s gonna be huge
