Priyanka Chopra's Fans Want Her to Play Ms Marvel, A Pakistani Superhero

As it turns out, Captain Marvel might prove to be one of the most important films in the MCU.

It's clear that Ms Marvel is one of those films that's on their agenda.

Making her debut in 2014, Kamala Khan, a teenage American Muslim from New Jersey, realised she was a superhero when she discovered she had shapeshifting abilities.

P.S. Ms. Marvel isn't Captain's Marvel's sidekick.

In an interview conducted by BBC Kevin Feige confirmed that the Marvel studio is planning a Ms Marvel movie and that the studio is now filming Captain Marvel with Brie Larson. In the first weekend of May, Marvel dethroned the previous leader, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", as "Avengers: Infinity War" earned an estimated $258 million.

Although Feige's confirmation of Ms. Marvel's film future so soon is a surprise, the fact that the studio was considering her is not. It would mark the first time a Muslim character has headlined a superhero movie.

With Kamala's age, I think it would be ideal to have her be a classmate of one Peter Parker.

There is no word on whether Ms. Marvel will get her own solo movie as part of phase four or if she will be limited to special appearances. It's also the first superhero film to breach the $1 billion mark in worldwide total, besting Ultron's $946 million global takings and The Avengers' $895 million. She greatly idolizes Captain Marvel and aspires to be just like her.

When news of Ms Marvel's debut spread, fans were quick to respond with suggestions to make Chopra the lead due to her South Asian heritage.

While it's unclear what "definitely, sort of in the works" means, this kind of statement coming from someone like Feige, who has shaped the MCU, is a big deal.

Captain Marvel is scheduled to opem in theaters March 6, 2019. The film stars Union as a mom who has to fight to save her kids from a group of home invaders. "He was like, 'Yeah, that would be amazing!' but he didn't really commit to it, but he thought it would be a great idea".
