According to one of the other actors working on the show, Orange is The New Black actor Alysia Reiner cast in Ms Marvel!
Ms Marvel is being filmed right now in Atlanta, and it appears we have another cast member confirmed. Laith Nakli, who seems to play Sheikh Abdullah in the show recently wrapped filming. However, his Instgram post also mentioned how happy he was to have gotten to work with Alysia Reiner.
The post reads,
“And that’s a wrap for Ms. Marvel what an experience. Just when I thought it couldn’t get better it did when Alysia Reiner joined the cast. 16 years of friendship and working together. Thank you Sana Amanat and bad ass directors Bilall Fallah, Adil El Arbi, Meera Menon, and the incredible cast!! Can’t wait for the world to see this show. Also can’t wait to see you New York !!”
There is currently no hints as to who Reiner could be playing here. I think most fans seems to assume she could be a villain, and one not necessarily out there in the promotional material. However, I’m not sure that really narrows things down. One would assume Reiner and Nakli have some scenes together, but that’s as far as it goes.
Ms Marvel is a bit too modern to be incorporated into my comic book Marvel knowledge. The first true encounter I had with the character was in the Marvel’s Avengers video game. Kamala Khan wasn’t created until 2013, long years after the end of my comic book days. However, even if I was steeped in Kamal Khan lore, I doubt it would help us work out who Reiner is playing?
Ms Marvel will debut in late, 2021. I have to say it’s not the Marvel project which excites me the most, but I am still looking forward to it. What do you think of Alysia Reiner cast in Ms Marvel? Leave any thoughts below in the usual place.
