Murphy’s Multiverse is reporting that Marvel Studios has delayed production for its upcoming Disney+ series Ms. Marvel. Filming was originally set to begin this August in Atlanta, but has now been postponed to November. Filming is expected to wrap in March 2021.
Even though filming for the series has been delayed, we might see Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, before she debuts in her own series. Marvel Studios has already started casting for the role and started call backs last month. Insiders speculate that the early casting is a plan for the character to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe before Ms. Marvel debuts on the streaming service.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has said that the Disney+ projects are as much a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s tapestry as any of the films. “We’ve already started shooting two of them, and they’re very, very special,” Feige said at CCXP in 2019, referring to The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and to WandaVision. “And will all, for the first time, interlink. So the MCU will be on your TV screen at home on Disney+ and interconnect with the movies, and then go back and forth. It’s exciting to expand the MCU to even bigger and better heights.”
Little is known about the upcoming Marvel series, but it is being written by Hulu’s Four Weddings and a Funeral writer, Brisha K. Ali, who will also be the showrunner.
If you are unfamiliar with the Ms. Marvel character, Kamala Khan is Marvel’s first Muslim superhero. She has a polymorphous super power, which means she has the ability to stretch and change her shape.
A premiere date on Disney+ has not been announced yet.
