Kevin Feige Has "Plans" for Ms. Marvel, Kamala Khan

The teenage character, Kamala Khan, was first introduced in 2014 by Muslim writer G. Willow Wilson, artist Adrian Alphona, and with the help of their editors Sana Amanat and Stephen Wacker.

Carol Danvers, the titular hero of next year's upcoming Captain Marvel, originally carried the title of Ms. Marvel in the comics before taking on the role of "Captain". What's cool about Kamala though, is that she gives a very realistic view on growing up Muslim in America-despite her having abilities to shapeshift.

In an article for Mashable Asia, Adam Rosenberg wrote that the idea of a Ms. Marvel movie may be "sooner than you think". In the meantime, while Thanos' dancing may be restricted to Fortnite, you can get a taste of his destructive power right now in Avengers: Infinity War. The movie, starring Gabrielle Union as a mother who must rescue her two children from a hostage situation, ever-so-slightly bested pre-release predictions of $15 million.

With Kamala's age, I think it would be flawless to have her be a classmate of one Peter Parker.

Like Black Panther and Captain Marvel before it, a Ms. Marvel film would be a milestone for representation in film. A Muslim superhero movie could be a savvy move for worldwide markets, too, what with Saudi Arabia recently opening its first-ever multiplex, and making a big push to encourage new business.

Avengers: Infinity War isn't just the most epic Marvel movie to date - both in terms of roster and box-office earnings - it's also the biggest bloodbath in the franchise's history.

I couldn't be more excited for a potential Ms. Marvel movie featuring Kamala Khan. Or maybe she might get her own Netflix series similar to Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and the Punisher.

Avengers: Infinity War is already placed in the 24th position in China's all-time highest-grossing films list and is also the second highest-earning superhero film, only behind Avengers: Age of Ultron, which raked in a lifetime theatrical revenue of 1.46 billion yuan.

Before Ms. Marvel happens, Captain Marvel will hit theaters on March 6, 2019.
