Marvel working on a Muslim superhero film'Ms Marvel'Marvel have a new film “in the works” in the shape of Muslim superhero Ms Marvel.

It won’t be the studio’s first female-led film – Brie Larson is already set to enter the franchise as Captain Marvel in 2019.

Avengers Infinity War producer Kevin Feige told the BBC: “Ms. Marvel… is definitely sort of in the works.”

He explained she is “another character in the comic books, the Muslim hero who is inspired by Captain Marvel”.

“We have plans for that once we’ve introduced Captain Marvel to the world,” he added.

In the comic books, Ms Marvel’s alter-ego is Kamala Khan, a Pakistani-American teenager from New Jersey.

Who could play Ms Marvel?

No firm plans have been announced yet – least of all casting – but there’s speculation that Priyanka Chopra could be a shoo-in for the role.

The actress already voices the character in the mobile video game Marvel: Avengers Academy,

Several fans voiced their support for Chopra – but some said the role should go to a Pakistani-American rather than Indian.
