‘Ms. Marvel’ trailer introduces the MCU’s Muslim teen superhero
That daydream is pure fantasy, until it isn’t: The trailer doesn’t show us just how Kamala gets her powers or their extent (no spoilers here) — she describes them as “cosmic.”
“It’s not really the brown girls from Jersey City who save the world,” Kamala says at one point in the trailer. But “Ms. Marvel” the series will likely prove her wrong.
What foes will Kamala face beyond high school mean girls and intimidatingly attractive classmates? Will her family learn her super-powered secret? And when will she get to join her idol Captain Marvel in defending Earth from interstellar invaders? (She’s set to appear in the upcoming “Captain Marvel” sequel “The Marvels.”)
The MCU loves a slow build, so it’s likely neither Kamala nor the viewers will get every question answered. Marvel fans have likely already begun theorizing, but they’ll have to wait until June 8, when the show starts streaming on Disney+, to see how Kamala’s story plays out.
