Marvel working on a Muslim superhero film ‘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”.

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