Actor Riz Ahmed has offered to write the screenplay for Miss Marvel, the comic featuring Muslim teenage superhero Kamala Khan. It's a thrilling time for our Brown actors in Hollywood, in particular, Riz Ahmed, Kumail Nanjiani and Mindy Kaling who are shimmering overseas, making us desis incredibly proud.
Would you be interested in seeing this duo of Riz Ahmed and Mindy Kaling bring Ms. Marvel to the big screen? Nanjiani co-wrote the Oscar nominated screenplay for The Big Sick with his wife Emily V. Gordon, while Kaling has been nominated for and won numerous awards for her work on both The Office and her solo TV series The Mindy Project.
While Kaling seemed up to the task, replying to Ahmed that she's "obsessed with this comic book", other Twitter users weren't so sure that it'd be fitting.
When it was announced by Marvel president, Kevin Fiege in a BBC interview, that a Ms Marvel movie will be made in 2019, fans of the community have been extremely excited.
"Captain Marvel's shooting right now with Brie Larson", he said.
Obviously Ms. Marvel's introduction to the MCU still lies somewhere in the future, and possibly the somewhat distant future at that.
"We have plans for that once we've introduced Captain Marvel to the world", he added. Unlike her superhero idol who has the powers of flight, energy, and super-strength, Ms. Marvel has the power of elasticity.
Khan begins to go by Miss Marvel after Carol Danvers her hero, dons the title of Captain Marvel. But, once Ms. Marvel was let out of the box, several talented filmmakers jumped at the chance to bring this Pakistani-American superhero to life.
