Kevin Feige, are you listening? As if we needed more reason to want Kamala Khan in the MCU, a new fan-made Ms. Marvel short film is making us even more desperate for her to make a long-awaited appearance in the Marvel movies. On Friday, Alaras Productions posted a 17-minute Ms. Marvel short on YouTube and frankly, it’s perfect.
Pulling from the iconic Ms. Marvel 2015-2019 run headed by her creators, writer G. Willow Wilson, artists Adrian Alphona and Jamie McKelvie, and editors Sana Amanat and Stephen Wacker, this short film gives us all the best parts of Kamala’s life: her geekdom, her friendships, her family and her superhero origin. This fan-made film packs a punch and we love every minute of it.
Feige continues to be vague about when and how Kamala will enter the MCU, so for now, watch this short film and revel in its greatness.
