We’re about a month out from the debut of Marvel Studios’ newest series, “Ms. Marvel,” on Disney+, and a new trailer for the series has been released.
This new look at the upcoming series sees a teenage Kamala Khan (aka Ms. Marvel) wrestling with her newfound powers, and the trailer gives us more of a glimpse of what those powers are.
We also see more of her family and friends in this trailer, such as her best friend Bruno (Matt Lintz) and mother Muneeba Khan (Zenobia Shroff), and how conflicted she is trying to balance her new life as a superhero with her current life.
Plus we get a glimpse of the vigilante known as Red Dagger (Aramis Knight).
“Have you ever wanted something so bad,” says Khan at the start of the trailer, “and then it actually happens, but it’s not as great as you actually imagined it?”
Take a look:
Iman Vellani plays Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel, though it appears there are some detail changes with the character from the comics to the screen.
In the comics, Kamala received her powers after the Inhuman king Black Bolt (last seen briefly in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness“) set off a Terrigen bomb (Terrigen was an early plot point of “Marvel’s Agent of Shield” series and “Marvel’s Inhumans” series where Black Bolt first appeared in the MCU).
From what I can tell from this trailer, it appears that instead of having Inhuman DNA, she has a pair of magical/cosmic bracelets, much like the Ten Rings of “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.”
She does seem to have similar powers to the comics, though, including the power to create a big fist to punch people, and the ability to stretch her body.
I guess we’ll see if there are any other changes when “Ms. Marvel” debuts on Disney+ on June 8, 2022.
The series also stars Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Mohan Kapur, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Naki, Azher Usman, Travina Springer, Anjali Bhimani, Nimra Bucha, and Farhan Akhtar.
In addition to the series, the character of Ms. Marvel will also be seen in “The Marvels” movie, which will also feature Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), and Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), who gained powers in “WandaVision.”
“The Marvels,” directed by Nia DaCosta, recently had a date change, and will now be released on July 28, 2023.
