Kamala is a NuHuman living in Jersey City who gains shape-shifting superpowers when she is caught in a Terrigen Mist.

Fiege also mentioned that the studio is now filming Captain Marvel with Brie Larson in the lead. "We have plans for that once we've introduced Captain Marvel to the world".

Ms. Marvel's appearance on the big screen would be a huge stride for Muslim representation, and for women in general, in the MCU and in film culture at large.

He told the Hollywood Reporter: 'We meet on a regular basis with our Marvel team, and we've plotted out Marvel movies that will take us well into the next decade.

Ms. Marvel would be just as huge a leap forward as Black Panther or Captain Marvel for superhero films. The phrase "definitely sort of in the works" isn't exactly a guarantee, but it's encouraging for fans that Feige is already so familiar with the character, and openly discussing future plans to include her in the MCU. Priyanka announced in February 2016 that she will be voicing for Ms Marvel aka Kamala Khan for a mobile game called Marvel Avengers Academy.

Good news for all the marvel fans.

Captain Marvel opens in theaters on March 6, 2019. But whatever the case, Kamala Khan's introduction would be a welcome new addition to Marvel's growing pantheon of diverse superheroes, and a nice way to break up the plethora of white guys named Chris. In the Marvel comics, Ms Marvel is inspired by Captain Marvel to become a hero, hence the similarity in the name. After that, she will join Earth's Mightiest Heroes in Avengers 4.

Marvel bosses have confirmed Ms Marvel will be joining the MCU, and fans are divided over who should play the character.
