Marvel Studios’ efforts to expand their cinematic universe beyond film kicked off this year with WandaVision, and continued with Disney+ shows like The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and Loki, with more to come. One of these projects being developed for television is Ms. Marvel, based on the popular comic book character that exploded into popularity thanks to Square Enix’s Marvel’s Avengers. However, it will now reportedly premiere in February 2022 as opposed to its original 2021 release window.
According to The Direct movie insider Amit Chaudhari, who has a credible track record of insider information in the film industry, Disney is now planning to release Ms. Marvel on Disney+ by February 2022, shifting it out of its originally planned 2021 release window. The show was supposed to launch alongside Hawkeye later this year, but plans have seemingly changed behind the curtains. Disney has yet to make any official announcement, so take this with a grain of salt for now.
Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel made her comic book debut in Captain Marvel #14 and has since gained popularity thanks to her polymorphous superpowers, youthful charisma and taking the lead in Square Enix’s video game, Marvel’s Avengers. Disney has already cast newcomer Iman Vellani as the lead character, with a supporting cast that includes Zenobia Shroff as Muneeba Khan, Mohan Kapur as Yusuf Khan, and Matt Lintz as Bruno Carrelli. No official synopsis or trailer has been provided yet either, which lends some credibility to the rumour that Disney is shifting the series to early next year. Additionally, it may conclude just before the release of the highly anticipated film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which could factor into its delay.
Unfortunately, Disney+ has yet to hit South Africa yet, though the company announced a launch window of Winter 2022. It will be a while until we can view all of our favourite shows that we may have missed out on, which currently include a variety of Marvel-related films and television shows hitting the service.
