No surprise, but it is revealed that a Ms. Marvel series is in the works for the Disney Plus streaming service.
I say no surprise because the character has been getting a big push by Marvel in video games and such.
According to THR, the Ms. Marvel announcement may be made today at the Disney D23 Expo.
Details include it will be a live-action series with comedian British writer Bisha K. Ali to write and act as showrunner; Ali is currently a staff writer on Hulu’s remake of Four Weddings and a Funeral.
Update: Marvel Studios announced the series and released the following logo at the D23 Expo.
“You will meet her in her Disney Plus series and then you will see her in our films,” Kevin Feige announced. “It is incredibly exciting for us.”
Update #2: The series will be a part of Marvel’s Phase 4.

Ms. Marvel joining the MCU
In the comics, Ms. Marvel is Kamala Khan, Marvel’s first Muslim superhero who is also an Inhuman and has the power of shapeshifting. She also took over the Ms. Marvel name from Carol Danvers when Danvers became Captain Marvel.
Interestingly enough, Brie Larson recently said she would like to have Ms. Marvel a part of Captain Marvel sequels, so perhaps similar to WandaVision, the Ms. Marvel Disney Plus series could be leading into Captain Marvel 2.
“My dream would be that Ms. Marvel gets to come into play,” Brie Larson said at the Singapore press conference for Captain Marvel about who would she like to be paired up with in the future.
It also has previously been rumored that Kamala Khan will be in CM2.
Regarding the video games, Ms. Marvel looks to have a major role in the new Avengers video game.
