Ms. Marvel, a.k.a Kamala Khan, will soon make her debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe through her very own television show. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced the news in the D23 Expo 2019 explaining that the female superhero would first appear on the small screen as introduction then later migrate to the big screen to join the heroes we know and love. It’s clear that even from the beginning, Marvel series on Disney’s new streaming service all exist in the same timeline as the MCU.
British writer Bisha K. Ali (Four Weddings and A Funeral, Sex Education) is set to take control of the project as both screenplay writer and showrunner. However, there were no further details on the cast and crew or a possible release date. As part of the slew of shows announced for Disney+’s second phase we might have to ready ourselves for a long wait before the project even gets in motion.

Kamala Khan, a popular teenage hero in the comics, took on the mantle of Ms. Marvel after being inspired by Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers). The Pakistani-American owes her shapeshifting and super-healing abilities to her inhuman genes, though it is unclear whether the show will follow this origin.
