When president of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige said last year that viewers won’t have to wait long to meet Ms. Marvel, it immediately sparked speculation about when and how Kamala Khan could make her first appearance in the MCU. In an exclusive interview with ScreenRant published on Saturday, Feige clarified whether we’ve already met Kamala, in addition to details about her age and how she’ll be portrayed.
Kamala Khan, a.k.a. Ms. Marvel, was created by Marvel Comics writer G. Willow Wilson, artists Adrian Alphona and Jamie McKelvie, and editors Sana Amanat and Stephen Wacker. She made her first appearance in Captain Marvel #14 in 2013 and then starred in her own solo series starting in February 2014. That series just ended its five-year run, with new writer Saladin Ahmed taking up the torch for The Magnificent Ms. Marvel, which debuted March 13.
In the comics, Kamala is a teenage Pakistani-American Muslim from Jersey City with Inhuman genes that give her shapeshifting abilities. She assumes the Ms. Marvel mantel from her idol, Carol Danvers, after Carol becomes Captain Marvel.
Likewise, Feige confirmed in his interview with ScreenRant that Kamala will be a teenager in the MCU. In response to a question about whether or not it’s possible that viewers have already met a young Kamala, Feige said, “No. No. I mean Monica you’ve mentioned and it’s not hidden. Obviously. It’s right there. The answer is no. Cause I think Ms. Marvel is a contemporary story and I don’t think she was born yet.”
So, despite some apparent speculation, Kamala wasn’t in Captain Marvel. Presumably, we also haven’t seen her in any of the other MCU films. The questions of when and how she will make her debut remain unanswered. After Avengers: Endgame hits theaters April 26, anything could happen.
In the meantime, Kamala continues to kick butt in The Magnificent Ms. Marvel and Champions; she’ll also appear in the new Marvel Rising mini-series starting this Wednesday and she’ll team up with Peter Parker in the rebooted Marvel Team-Up written by Eve L. Ewing and illustrated by Joey Vazquez in April.

  1. Although, I agree that we do need a hero princess who ain’t afraid to be non-binary like Emma Gonzalez…
    Ms Marvel can only be played by the most Muslimy, female actress there is, the strong and brave Mindy Kaling.
    Chelsea Manning should be the next Captain Marvel.Not only can she program and campaign for our right to party, but she’s a bone fide Thespian, to boot! Yow!
