The MCU is going in entirely new directions then was previously thought possible. From Eternals to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the potential for different types of projects is so vast, you can’t even count them. Eternals and Captain Marvel took the MCU in a more cosmic direction, while Spider-Man: No Way Home, WandaVision, What If…?, and Loki opened a Multiverse of possibilities (pun very intended). It’s exciting to see where Disney and Marvel will steer the boat going forward, but representation is clearly a big part of that plan. However, representation can be incredibly controversial, as seen with Ms. Marvel.
The series is headlined by up-and-coming actress Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan (Ms. Marvel). The series is directed by Billal Fillah, Adil El Arbi, and Meera Menon. The show is set to release in Summer 2022, and now, we have more info about what might be going on behind-the-scenes for Ms. Marvel.
Ms. Marvel Reshoot Duration + Episode Runtime Revealed
Per One Take News, the reshoots that are slated to take place for Ms. Marvel will be roughly a month in length, with The Cosmic Circus saying that the exact dates are from January 24 to February 28, and will shoot in Atlanta. Per The Cosmic Circus, the second unit will also film for two weeks, concurrently.
The reshoots are not expected to change Ms. Marvel’s powers, which have been a subject of controversy recently. Each episode is expected to be about half an hour in length, without credits. The series is also reportedly being considered for multiple seasons, provided the first one doesn’t fail.
Interesting. These developments certainly aren’t terrible, but they’re not necessarily the best, either. For comparison, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (a movie) had 6 weeks of reshoots. Hawkeye had 3 days. The former was rumored to have severe plot issues, and as such underwent extensive additional photography. The latter presumably didn’t have many issues. This doesn’t bode well for Ms. Marvel, as the series is set to start 5 weeks of reshoots. How extensive the plot will be modified is unknown, but hopefully these reshoots fix whatever issues the series might have.
Ms. Marvel will debut on Disney+ in 2022. What did you think of this news? Why do you think the new show is getting such extensive reshoots? Do you want more than half-hour episodes? Let us know by mentioning @The_Illuminerdi on Twitter.
