With Ms. Marvel fast approaching, Marvel Studios has shared a handful of new stills from the show.
They help us get a little better acquainted with Kamala Khan's (Iman Vellani) friends and family, As you can see, the future Avenger is having fun showcasing her newfound abilities to her best friend Bruno (Matt Lintz), and those Green Lantern-style constructs do look pretty cool when she powers up.
As for Kamala's family, this still shows Mohan Kapur as Yusuf, Saagar Shaikh as Aamir, and Nimra Bucha as Najma. If you're familiar with the comics, you'll be aware of how pivotal they are to this story.
During a recent interview with Zavvi, Vellani addressed the tone of Ms. Marvel and made some interesting comparisons. "It is John Hughes-esque mixed with Lady Bird and Scott Pilgrim. It’s a lot more lighthearted than the other shows. We showcase that being a teenager is awkward, corny, and weird. We are self-aware of how cheesy the show gets sometimes, but when you are growing up everything is so heightened – your emotions, crushes, friendships – it all feels so new."
"Minor inconveniences also feel like the end of the world. We hold onto that feeling of when you are a kid just wanting to grow up," the newcomer continued. "And when you are a teenager you think you know everything but you don’t as you haven’t lived yet. We really lean into that.”
Check out those new stills from the Disney+ series below:
"Ms. Marvel is a new, original series that introduces Kamala Khan, a Muslim American teenager growing up in Jersey City. An avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, Kamala is a Super Hero mega fan with an oversized imagination—particularly when it comes to Captain Marvel. Yet Kamala feels like she doesn’t fit in at school and sometimes even at home—that is, until she gets super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life gets better with super powers, right?"
