Disney+’s Ms Marvel will be hitting the popular streaming site next month, and new promo posters have just been spotted!
Twitter user UniversoAlex posted a series of photos that contained character posters for the upcoming anticipated series.
The posters includes Iman Vellani’s Ms Marvel (AKA Kamala Khan), Matt Lintz’s Bruno Carrelli, Zenobia Shroff’s Muneeba Khan, Laurel Marsden’s Zoe Zimmer, Rish Shah’s Kamran, Yasmeen Flethcher’s Nakia Bahadir, Saagar Shaikh’s Amir Khan, Travina Springer’s Tyesha Hillman and Mohan Kapoor’s Yusuf Khan.
Ms Marvel Brings A Comic-Style World To Life
The photos were spotted in the streets of Los Angeles and they are visually stunning. The vibrant colors bring out the comic-style aesthetic that Ms Marvel has been advocating since the first trailer dropped, and which early social media reactions seem to agree are infused throughout the actual series itself.
Not only does it bring out that animated element, but it also represents a mixture of Kamala Khan’s roots in her culture as a Pakistani teen and her American life living in New Jersey.
Doodles and graffiti-like drawings are plastered all around each Ms Marvel poster, which makes everything pop!
Critics were able to see the first two episodes of the show and many have praised the series, especially Iman Vellani. People are calling Vellani’s portrayal of Kamala Khan as “relatable” with her journey resembling the journey Tom Holland’s Peter Parker went through in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Ms. Marvel is the first Muslim superhero to hit Marvel comics and from what critics have claimed, we will be seeing her journey with balancing her life as a young Pakistani-American who’s still in high school and her life as a superhero.
The limited series is set to release on Disney+ on June 8, and the show will consist of six episodes. This won’t be the last time we will see Vellani’s cosmic character, as she will be reprising her role in the upcoming Marvel sequel The Marvels with Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris and Samuel L. Jackson. The film is set for release on July 28, 2023.
Other upcoming Disney+ Marvel series include She-Hulk: Attorney At Law with 9 episodes, Secret Invasion with 6 episodes, The animated X-Men ’97 series with an unknown number of episodes, Ironheart with 6 episodes, Armor Wars with an unknown number of episodes, and I Am Groot – about which very little is known. Of course, there are also some series returning for a second season, such as Loki and What If…? There are even more new shows to count beyond that, but we’re wading in murky waters after that.
Just as Ms Marvel is meant to feed directly into The Marvels – and just as the previous WandaVision fed directly into Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness – the rest of the MCU lineup in the next few years may or may not have direct connections to the upcoming shows. Those movies include Thor: Love And Thunder in July, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in November, Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania in February 2023, and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 in May of that year. Beyond that is once again stretching beyond the limits of human knowledge at this particular time.
Ms Marvel‘s synopsis is as follows: Launching on Disney+ on June 8th, 2022, Ms Marvel is a new series that introduces Kamala Khan—a 16-year-old Pakistani-American growing up in Jersey City. A great student, an avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, she has a special affinity for superheroes, particularly Captain Marvel.
