It looks like everything and every character is being brought to life from the pages of their comic books these days. It’s not really surprising at this point when we hear of the possibility of another character being adapted to live-action, so when the news that Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel might be getting her own show or movie, it led to more excitement than shock.
The news came via CBR in a recent interview with Joe Quesada, the Chief Operating Officer over at Marvel. Their interview consisted of many things, such as how impactful the readers are in deciding what projects Marvel moves forward with, and of course the topic of Ms.Marvel:
“Our readers are the Johnny Appleseeds. They tell us something is resonating, something is hitting a core, and that’s something we should try to cultivate. Another great example of this: Ms. Marvel. If we had put this book out ten years ago, it probably would never have succeeded. Not only did we find the audience, but we had the right people on the book and we had the right editor on the book, the right creators on the book. And now we have a character that’s very recognizable — very, very quickly. That doesn’t happen a lot. Who knows where Ms. Marvel’s going to end up. You can be sure that, somewhere down the road, she will be a part of the future of Marvel in other media.”
Ms.Marvel was first introduced in August 2013, and has been rising in popularity since then. She’s a young girl, and she’s commonly shown as a fun, quirky, energetic hero, so her character is pretty relatable for a younger audience. What’s more is that she’s the first Pakistani hero around, so her story is fresh and unique as well. It’s obvious that people would love to see her character in film or on TV sometime in the near future, but unfortunately Carol Danvers’ character, Captain Marvel has to be introduced in the MCU first, since Kamala did kind of get her name from her. Looks like if we do get to see Ms.Marvel, it won’t be until after 2019 or so. Bummer.
