The call for inclusion, diversity and equality in movies and televisions is not new. And with major successes like Black Panther, Wonder Woman and Quantico, it seems that we are finally coming to the time when the public can see relatable characters on the screen. Taking a step further to showcase the diversity, Marvel Studios have recently confirmed that they plan to make a movie of Ms. Marvel in the future. The move is important because it means that Marvel plans to introduce his first Muslim superhero.
Yes, Miss Marvel is an American Muslim teenager of Pakistani origin named Kamala Khan who is inspired to become a hero by Captain Marvel. The cheerful news was confirmed by Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios. In a recent interview with the BBC, Feige said, "Mrs. Marvel, who is another character in the comics, the Muslim hero who is inspired by Captain Marvel, certainly somehow in the works." We have plans for once we have introduced Captain Marvel to the world. "

I thought ms wonder would be something that is still very far from the reach of mcu but I'm glad it's actually and literally in the next line of Muslim rights!

IM CRIANT. ALL I WANT IS A STRONG REPRESENTATION FOR PAKISTANIS PLS. If I had Kamala when I was a kid I would have bought Mrs. Marvel's comics for every kid who failed the terrorist nickname after sharing my Pakistani heritage with them http: / /t.co/S0U9ut5i80

The news also gave rise to serious discussions and debates about who could play the 16-year-old cartoon character. Many have suggested Priyanka Chopra and this has angered the fans, since she is neither Pakistani, nor adolescent, nor Muslim.
wonder does not really need to mess ms. wonder. it's a great chance for diversity and representation. I know how excited I was for the black panther and I want Muslims / Pakistanis to feel the same way. it feels good to see people like you in the media.

If they actually introduce Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan) into the MCU, she deserves to be portrayed by a dark-skinned, Muslim-skinned Pakistani girl under the age of 21 and literally no one. other. pic.twitter.com/O4W3605Fg3

Sure you can wonder Marvel accurately, it is so important that they get this right

Why is everyone in this thread so obsessed with Priyanka Chopra playing Ms. Marvel? She is 1) not able to pass for a high school student 2) not Pakistani 3) already a MEGA star! The fact that people can only name it shows the shortage of South Asian women in traditional media http://t.co/i1ODiRa2OO

I am so excited for Mrs. Marvel that I just hope that a Pakistani will play this role instead of bleaching it and giving it to a white person like what happened w Ghost in the Shell & Scarlett Johansson play a character who is supposed to be Asian smh
