MS. MARVEL's Credits May Have Revealed A Major MCU Cameo For Future Episodes - SPOILERS
Ms. Marvel kicked off recently on Disney+. The show features many MCU references, but it appears its credits may have spoiled a major MCU cameo for later episodes.
Note: This article contains potential spoilers for Ms. Marvel.
Ever since Iron Man came out in 2008, Marvel Studios has made a habit of putting teasers/stingers after the credits of every single one of its projects. However, with Ms. Marvel — now streaming on Disney+ — the major surprise might be hiding in the credits themselves.
The series features numerous references to the Marvel Cinematic Universe due to its protagonist, Kamala Khan, being a superhero mega-fan. But the show may not keep its MCU connections to just brief mentions, because it seems we can expect it to feature a major character appearance in future episodes.
In the credits of Episode 1 of Ms. Marvel, "Generation Why," at the 45:31 mark there is a credit that reads: "Makeup artist to Ms. Steinfeld: Chris Milone," seemingly teasing a role for Hailee Steinfeld, who made her MCU debut as Kate Bishop in 2021's Hawkeye.
After going through the Ms. Marvel cast list — both on the show's credits and IMDb — we were unable to find anyone working on the show with the surname "Steinfeld." Following the discovery, we went into the credits of Episode 1 of Hawkeye, "Never Meet Your Heroes." At the 45:56-minute mark, the exact same credit appears: "Makeup artist to Ms. Steinfeld: Chris Milone."
For context, Milone is a New York City-based makeup artist who became Steinfeld's personal makeup artist in Season 2 of her Apple TV+ series, Dickinson. As shown in the Hawkeye credits and further confirmed by Milone on Instagram, he re-teamed with the star for Marvel Studios' Disney+ series:
Going by this, it seems probable that the "Ms. Steinfeld" the Ms. Marvel credits refer to is indeed Hailee Steinfeld.
Adding to the likelihood of Steinfeld appearing in Ms. Marvel (or the show having some connections to Hawkeye) is the fact that the series' end-credits sequence features a blink-and-you'll-miss-it appearance by Trust A Bro, a moving company operated by the tracksuit mafia that was prominently featured in Hawkeye.
A truck from the company shows up at the 42:22 mark alongside Executive Producer Victoria Alonso's name.
Keep in mind, though, that it's better to have some level of skepticism about this. The Ms. Marvel credit could have ultimately been a mistake that somehow carried over from the Hawkeye-credits layout — however unlikely that may be. Furthermore, a reference to a plot point from Clint Barton's solo adventure doesn't necessarily mean a character from that show will make the jump to Ms. Marvel.
Ms. Marvel is currently streaming on Disney+, with new episodes releasing every Wednesday.
