Ms. Marvel is still shooting in Atlanta, Georgia, and while it's been a while since we've seen anything from the Disney+ series, excitement among fans is definitely building. Now, it's been revealed that Orange is the New Black star Alysia Reiner has quietly been added to the show's cast. 

We don't know who she's playing, but the news broke courtesy of Ms. Marvel star Laith Nakli on Instagram.

"And that’s a wrap for Ms. Marvel what an experience," he says. "Just when I thought it couldn’t get better it did when Alysia Reiner joined the cast. 16 years of friendship and working together. Thank you Sana Amanat and bad ass directors Bilall Fallah, Adil El Arbi, Meera Menon, and the incredible cast! Can’t wait for the world to see this show."

It's been claimed online that Nakli plays Sheikh Abdullah in the series, and it will be interesting to see what Reiner brings to the table, as she's definitely a talent worth keeping an eye on. 
 


In other Ms. Marvel news, a set video has been shared online (which it seems we all missed last November when the series was shooting in full view of the paparazzi) showing Iman Vellani in full costume as...Captain Marvel? This is a Halloween costume, but might be what the young hero initially heads into action wearing when the teenager discovers that she has superpowers. 

Check out this footage from the show's set below:

So weird that they're introducing Ms Marvel and Monica Rambeau/Photon before Captain Marvel is even properly established herself. How are we supposed to believe Captain Marvel is this girl's favourite superhero when she's barely even been on earth? Let alone the audience even liking her yet because her characterisation in her movie was not good. It's absolutely still possible to get audiences on board with her but she needs a sequel or a supporting role in another Marvel movie first and it would have made sense if they did that before bringing in a new character who's such a superfan that she takes her name.

@Boyle360 - on the flip side to that, she already had her own solo outing, which was recieved as OK, similar to Cpt America TFA. Those characters are a bit boring by themselves without the people around them to boost them up. Cap 2: Winter Soldier came along as avenger 1.5 and was hands down the best in phase 2.

With all the women empowerment and stuff going for it, establishing the supporting characters now are going round off Cpt Marvel 2 giving it more chance to succeed in comparison to the 1st one.

my 2 cents.

@Boyle360 - My question is how they are going to handle the origin. Either they legitimize Agents or S.H.I.E.L.D. or they have to do something else.

@Boyle360 - I see people cosplaying as characters I've never heard or seen before in my life, so I don't think something similar cannot happen in a fictional universe either. My guess is even Kamela is gonna get picked on for liking Captain Marvel, instead of any of the other Avengers that had far more exposure

They sure love using Halloween as an excuse for costume changes 😂😂

Just finished rewatching OitNB, and she's just fantastic in that. It's hard to separate her character from her in my head, so I don't know how she'll be in this show, but she's got charisma to burn.

@Spock0Clock - She's very attractive.

idk but that costume looks ugly so far...

@Beartastic25 - when will people learn to stop judging costumes based on set leaks for [frick]'s sake. Just like how Black Panther or Captain Marvel's suits looked "ugly" in the set leaks.

They always look better in the final version

@Beartastic25 - Don't make yourself look this silly. Please.

I live in Atlanta and my friend who was working in production for this show said they wrapped up over a week ago in Pinewood Studios Atlanta and are headed to Thailand.
