MARVELAvengers Muslim superhero Ms Marvel CONFIRMED – Priyanka Chopra to star as Kamala Khan

In a recent interview, Kevin Feige, while unable to confirm anything outright, did say that the Marvel Cinematic Universe definitely had plans in store for the Muslim hero.

Being a Muslim character with a lead role in a comic book story, Ms. Marvel was met with widespread reaction.

As per a report in Hindustan Times Marvel president Kevin Feige has said that there is a Pakistani-Muslim female superhero whose name is Kamala Khan and is known as Ms Marvel and fans want Bollywood superstar Priyanka Chora to play a Marvel hero.

Khan, as Ms. Marvel, was created by Sana Amanat and Stephen Wacker, writer G. Willow Wilson, and artist Adrian Alphona, and she made her first appearance in the August, 2013 edition of the Captain Marvel comic books. Now, we know that Ms. Marvel will make her way to the big screen soon; we're just not sure when.

"Captain Marvel's shooting right now with [American actress] Brie Larson", Mr Feige told the BBC. But who truly is the all-new Ms. Marvel?

However, Chopra, who is sort of in the Marvel universe already due to her voice role in the mobile video game "Marvel: Avengers Academy", is Indian, a detail that some fans pointed out.

Marvel bosses have confirmed Ms Marvel will be joining the MCU, and fans are divided over who should play the character. Next, we'll have Ant-Man and the Wasp, which hits cinemas on August 3rd, while Captain Marvel comes out before Avengers 4. She is Pakistani-American, from New Jersey. Or will the superhero blast onto the scene in her own movie?

But Sheza tweeted: "We are here for Priyanka Chopra playing the role".

Khan's family is from Pakistan and while she has faced problems outside of her home, there has also been struggles with her nearest and dearest.
