In an interview with the BBC, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige confirmed they are currently working on introducing Ms. Marvel aka Kamala Khan into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Feige was asked whether Ms. Marvel would be introduced and he answered:
“We are doing Captain Marvel right now. Captain Marvel is shooting right now with Brie Larson. Ms. Marvel which is another character in the comic books, the Muslim hero, who is inspired by Captain Marvel is definitely, sort of, in the works. We have plans for that once we’ve introduced Captain Marvel to the world.”

Ms. Marvel or Kamala Khan is a relatively new superheroine. She was created by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Scott Hepburn. She made her first appearance in Captain Marvel #14 in 2013. She would go on to receive her own series in April of 2014. She would eventually join the Champions as well as the Avengers in All-New, All-Different Avengers.
While she might use the same superheroine name that Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel previously used, she has a very different power set. Kamala Khan is actually an Inhuman in the comics and received her powers after she was exposed to the Terrigen Mist. Her powers include the ability to stretch her body in any way imaginable like Mr. Fantastic of the Fantastic Four. She also has the ability to increase and decrease her size like Ant-Man. Kamala also has the ability to shape-shift like the upcoming antagonists in Captain Marvel, the Skrulls.
It’ll be interesting to see how Feige and Marvel Studios introduce Ms. Marvel and if she will retain her comic book origin as an Inhuman given the failure of ABC’s Inhumans television show.
