Marvel plans to bring first Muslim superhero to the big screen



A Marvel film headed by a female, Muslim superhero is now "in the works", according to Avengers Infinity War producer Kevin Feige. In the human world, she writes fan fiction about her favourite superheroes, hangs out with her best friend at the local convenience store, struggles to stay awake in classes and at the mosque.

Fictional superhero Kamala, introduced in 2014, presents a nuanced portrayal of Muslim Americans and pushes past entrenched stereotypes about Islam.

Kamala is a new character to the comic book and made her debut appearance in 2013 as a fan of Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers).

Marvel is now in the midst of shooting Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson and will move onto introducing the teenage-superhero from New Jersey.

"Definitely sort of" isn't the most comforting thing Kevin could say about the character's future, but it's compelling nonetheless.

For the uninitiated, Ms. Marvel - alias Kamala Khan - is a Pakistani-American Muslim teen, who is inspired to become a superhero by Captain Marvel.

The beauty behind this unbelievable Ms Marvel is Sana Amanat who worked hard for this fantastic character. Nonetheless, the Marvel fans rejoiced that the film will inspire many young girls of Muslim origin. She tweeted after getting the part two years ago: 'I'm her voice and she's my alter ego in Marvel Avengers Academy!' He talked to BBC's Husam Asi, saying, "We're doing Captain Marvel right now". Fantastic and also change the size of her body including enlarging her fists for a bigger punch.

The company is also desperate to maintain its course in still pushing diversity through its creation of new characters and stories. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.
