Kamala Khan has arrived on our television screens and the Ms. Marvel show was everything I could have wanted and more! I’ve been a champion of the character since she was first announced in comics, and I couldn’t be happier at how well this character was actually received and how popular she’s become. And I’m so glad her TV show was amazing.
TV Show Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic
This might be my new favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe TV show. Pretty much every aspect of this show was perfect — and a perfect translation from the comics. The showrunners captured that wonderful Kamala Khan dynamic directly from the page, and infused the series with joy, energy and wonderful character development. They got the family right. They got the religion right. They may have crammed a bit too much into just six episodes, but that’s not a dealbreaker.

I am very excited for the Ms. Marvel TV show. I love the character, I have full faith in Marvel Studios, and sometimes we do get to have nice things. The first trailer arrived earlier this week and I’m finally sharing it!
I think this looks great! It looks fun, it looks joyous, it looks youthful; I really think this show is going to do right by Kamala Khan. I’m a little disappointed that they changed her powers, but to be honest, I never really dug her stretching powers in the first place. So I have faith in the showrunners making good hay out of the changes. And new actor Iman Vellani seems perfect in the role.
Did you see her thanks video after the trailer came out? Adorable!
Very hyped and excited for this show! Ms. Marvel comes to Disney+ on June 8!
Oh what a week, what a week. Where does one even begin? How about by just diving into some comic reviews, like Batman and a new Black Manta series? Sounds good to me!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin #11 because this comic can do no wrong. Holy cow is this good drama and good storytelling!
Meanwhile, I did finally get around to watch Centaurworld on Netflix. That show was a hoot and a half! Not much else going on with me right now. I’m playing some old video games and trying to find some new, interesting shows to watch. Just livin’ that 2021 lifestyle…
Comic Reviews: Batman #112, Black Manta #1, Champions #9 and Mighty Morphin #11.Read the rest of this entry
After a long wait and what was no doubt a lengthy audition process, Marvel Studios has cast Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan for the upcoming Ms. Marvel TV show on Disney+! This is exciting news because I am a huge Ms. Marvel fan and am very much looking forward to this show.
As has been pointed out, this is Vellani’s first major Hollywood role, so we don’t really know how she’s going to pan out as an actor — but I have 110% faith in the Marvel casting process. They haven’t failed us yet. No other casting decisions have been released online yet, but I’ve seen that the show is looking to bring in most of Kamala’s supporting cast from the comics. So there are no individual characters I hope they include because I’m confident they will include all the important ones. So this list is just some fun speculation of other things I’d like to see, like storyline ideas, villains or little details here or there.

At long last, it has been revealed that newcomer Iman Vellani has been cast as Kamala Khan for the Ms. Marvel TV show! She’s so new that this is her first acting role!
According to Deadline, Vellani’s only real credit in the world is being on a diversity committee at the 2019 Toronto Film Festival…so that’s something! And it obviously means none of us are going to be familiar with her acting work. But if Marvel Studios is cool with their choice, I definitely support their decision. They are casting wizards!
Marvel Studios hasn’t said anything yet, but they never do. Good for Miss Vellani!
