A ‘Ms. Marvel’ Disney+ series is under development

Kamala Khan is reportedly set to star in her own television series.

Kamala Khan is getting her own series, according to a new Hollywood Reporter report.

According to THR, the show will be written by Bisha K. Ali, a comedian who will also act as showrunner. Hollywood Reporter notes that the show may be announced at this weekend’s Disney+ presentation.

The Ms. Marvel mantle has existed in comic books since 1976 when Carol Danvers, now Captain Marvel, went under the name. However, since 2014, the name has belonged to Kamala Khan, Pakistani-American a high school student from Jersey City. Kamala is the first Muslim character to lead a comic book series, and possesses Inhuman genes after a Terrigen Mist accident, allowing her to stretch and “embiggen” her body.

The comic ran until earlier this year, when creator and writer G. Willow Wilson stepped away from the project to focus on other properties.

A replacement series, The Magnificent Ms. Marvel, kicked off in March from writer Saladin Ahmed. Between the two series, Kamala Khan has been a fan favorite character and a perennial request for inclusion in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And now, in the form of a television show, it appears she’ll have that chance.
