Ms. Marvel: Trailer Talk
Back in November, I wrote a ‘Trailer Talk’ piece on the 2021 Disney+ Day. The online event was a chance for Disney+ to reveal future projects that would be coming to the streaming platform. Amongst the various Marvel titles was Ms. Marvel. At the time, this title especially held my interest; it would be a female led series, but it will also mark the first Muslim/Pakistani superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
‘Ms. Marvel’ follows Kamala Khan (newcomer Iman Vellani) as she comes to terms with an uncertain future, school, boys…oh and superpowers.
So far, Marvel have done fantastically when it comes to their shows and this is yet another Marvel show that I am really looking forward to, despite not knowing anything about Ms Marvel. The aesthetic of the trailer resembles that of ‘Scott Pilgrim vs The World’, a film that I loved; if the show carries this visual style, then it would fit in comfortably. Iman Vellani also seems very comfortable in her first lead role as superhero/Captain Marvel fan Kamala. She plays the nerdy but charming character perfectly.
It also looks to be targeting a younger audience, something that can be seen working with this property. Overall, I have another Marvel show to add to my Disney+ watch list.
‘Ms. Marvel’ is another Marvel show that has caught my interest, despite my lack of knowledge of the source material. The acting and visuals looks great, and it carries an interesting and down-to-earth premise compared to previous Marvel properties that has been given to fans so far.
