Disney+’s Ms. Marvel became an instant hit among the Marvel fandom. Kamala Khan became the first Pakistani American hero to hit the MCU and it looks like the series is being teased to having a second season by the directing duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah.
In an Instagram post talking about their directorial work on two episodes of the series, they captioned the post with, “Just reminiscing on our time spent in the MCU, who’s ready for season 2?!” Rumors have been popping up on social media over the possibility of the series having a second season but with this Instagram post that comes from the directors, it looks like we may get a second season.
Since the publication of the director’s post, it looks like they have deleted their original caption while also limiting the comments on the post.
All About Ms. Marvel
Ms. Marvel features 16-year-old Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), who is an avid gamer, an aspiring artist, and an ultimate huge fan of the Avengers, in particular, her favorite hero is Captain Marvel. She has great friends by her side, Bruno (Matt Lintz) and Nakia (Yasmeen Fletcher). Kamala has never felt like she fit in anywhere until she gets her powers like her favorite heroes.
Though the series ended in early July, there’s been talks and speculation of the show being renewed for a second season. So far, the only Marvel series that are set to have a second season are Loki and What If…?. There has been no official word about another season but industry scooper, Daniel Richtman, has recently revealed that Marvel Studios have reportedly green-lit a second season.
At this year’s D23 Expo, Iman Vellani said that Marvel doesn’t tell her anything but she hopes a second season is on the horizon. “Hopefully. We gotta start a petition or something. [Marvel doesn’t] tell me anything so you’re not gonna hear anything.”
Ms. Marvel‘s Next Adventure: The Marvels
Even before the show’s debut on Disney+, it was already confirmed that Vellani’s character will make her return in the upcoming summer 2023 film, The Marvels. She will be sharing screen time with Brie Larson, Zawe Ashton, Teyonah Parris, Lashana Lynch, and more. At D23, Vellani was happy to attend and was really excited to join The Marvels team. “It’s great! I’m having trouble breathing today.”
According to what was shown during D23, the film will pick up right after the Ms. Marvel post-credit scene. It was already known that there will be connections between the series to the film but the powers that go through between Captain Marvel and Ms. Marvel tend to be the cause of the characters switching places.
The film will be directed by Nia DaCosta, who became a well-known name after directing 2021’s Candyman. She became the first black woman and the fourth woman to direct a Marvel Cinematic Universe film. It was also revealed by Ms. Marvel’s co-director Adil El Arbi that DaCosta was the one who shot the post-credit scene in the series without both directors.
Ms. Marvel‘s Future in the MCU
According to an early report, Shang-Chi’s Ten Rings and Ms. Marvel’s Bangle will act as the new “Infinity Stones” for the upcoming phases of the MCU. It has also been reported the ten rings share a similar extraterrestrial origin, like Kamala’s bangle. Ms. Marvel writer Fatimah Asghar spoke about how it would be for Kamala to appear in Avengers: Secret Wars.
“I think that Kamala is a smaller scale person, and there’s so much we have not seen. And so I think that, really, as we watch Kamala, I’m so excited to see her evolution and what she’s capable of in terms of factoring into these bigger worlds, into these kind of really huge pieces that are coming up. And I actually think that Kamala is an incredible superhero and [she has a lot that] she’s going to continue to grow into and add to the MCU.”Fatimah Asghar for CBR.com
The future is bright for the young hero and whether or not she will be getting a second season, fans can rest assured that she will be making her comeback in other MCU projects. All six episodes of the first season of Ms. Marvel is available now on Disney+. The Marvels is expected to land exclusively in theaters on July 28th, 2023.
