The direction and even existence of Ms. Marvel season two could depend on the success of the upcoming The Marvels movie.
Ms. Marvel is a mini-series on Disney+ and focuses on the character of Kamala Khan, a young teen who idolises The Avengers. She struggles to fit in with her normal life...until she gains superpowers.
Iman Vellani played Khan in the show and will reprise the role in The Marvels alongside Brie Larson as Carol Danvers and Teyonah Parris are Monica Rambeau.
The official premise for the movie reads:
'While investigating a wormhole linked to the Kree, Monica Rambeau's powers become entangled with those of Kamala Khan and Carol Danvers. The trio team up to determine why they are swapping places with each other every time they use their powers.'
Bilall Fallah and Adil El Arbi, who most famously worked on the cancelled Batgirl movie, directed two episodes of Ms. Marvel. They believe that any plans for a second season are linked to how The Marvels plays out for audiences.
"We’re waiting for The Marvels, so that will decide what the next step will be," El Arbi said on The DIscourse podcast.
“So we’re very much looking forward to that. I can’t wait to see it, man. It’s great to see the trailers and to see the whole family back there and Iman Vellani doing great work, so looking forward to that.”
Adil and Billal directed the pilot episode as well as the first season finale of Ms. Marvel.
The main villain of The Marvels will be Dar-Benn, portrayed by Zawe Ashton. Judging from the trailer, Dar-Benn is looking for revenge on Danvers for something in the past, and it is possible she is responsible for the power-shifting mess that our three heroes find themselves in.
Samuel L. Jackson will again appear in the MCU as Nick Fury, an ally of Danvers.
