Of the many projects Marvel Studios has coming out in the near future, one of the most anticipated is the Ms. Marvel series coming to Disney+. Set to begin filming sometime next year, it was one of the more inclusive titles to come from the studio. Now, thanks to the recent issue of Production Weekly, the working title for the series has been revealed to be Jersey, which is reference to the main character’s hometown.
Below is a very brief synopsis of the Ms. Marvel, a.k.a. Kamala Khan, provided by Comicbook.com:
In the comics, Kamala is a teenage girl who learns that she has polymorphing powers, allowing her to “embiggen” or shrink any parts of her body. Inspired by Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, Kamala uses her powers to protect her hometown of Jersey City, and eventually joins the Avengers.
In an interview last month, co-creator of the character G. Willow Wilson expressed her excitement over the upcoming series:
“It is so far beyond what either [editor Sana Amanat] or I ever envisioned going into this series six, going on seven, years ago, that I almost can’t process it. I think there’re some characters who are very much set up for the big screen; they’re very naturally sort of cinematic. But with Ms. Marvel, we really weren’t interested in creating something that had very obvious film potential. I was really leaning — and I know Adrian [Alphona] and Takeshi [Miyazawa] and all of the artists as well — were really leaning into the comic book-ness of this character. She’s got very comic booky powers. God bless them trying to bring that to live action; I don’t know how that’s going to work out in a way that doesn’t look really creepy.”
There is no word yet as to what date the series will begin production. Bisha K. Ali (Four Weddings And A Funeral) will act as showrunner for the series.
