As Ms. Marvel continues filming a new actor joins the cast.
The Hollywood Reporter first broke the news that Marsden will join the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Zoe Zimmer.
Laurel Marsden is the Ms. Marvel’s Zoe Zimmer
G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona introduced Zoe Zimmer in 2014’s Ms. Marvel No. 3 as the first person Kamala Khan saves. In the comics, Zoe Zimmer is for Kamala, what Flash Thompson is for Peter Parker – sometimes a bully, sometimes a friend.
Laurel Marsden is know for the Quibi series Survive, in which she starred alongside Game of Throne’s Sophie Turner.
