It's almost time for the premiere of Ms. Marvel and there is little doubt that fans are already looking forward to meeting Kamala Khan. But why was it necessary for the young superhero to get her own Marvel Cinematic Universe show before the expected debut in the Captain Marvel sequel? Kevin Feige shared a brilliant explanation for why Kamala had to get a TV series focusing on her.

We already know that Kamala Khan will be one of the "Marvels" who will show up in The Marvels. However, we'll get to see her in action without the other Marvels in Ms. Marvel this June. Marvel boss Kevin Feige recently spoke to Slashfilm and pointed out that Disney+ gave Marvel Studios the opportunity to explore Kamala's story before her big leap into the cinemas.

"When Disney+ came around, it gave us the opportunity to do what we really wanted to do, which was tell her full story in six episodes, and then have her transition into a feature," Feige said.

It certainly makes sense and it's an excellent idea to introduce Kamala on her own. This way, fans can truly understand what makes her different from the other superheroes we have already met. With that in mind, we can't wait to meet Kamala next week.

Ms. Marvel will star Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan. It will also feature Matt Lintz, Yasmeen Fletcher, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Fawad Khan, Laurel Marsden, Arian Moayed, Adaku Ononogbo, Alysia Reiner, Laith Nakli, Nimra Bucha, Travina Springer, and Aramis Knight. The series will focus on Kamala before she joins Carol Danvers and Monica Rambeau in The Marvels.

Ms. Marvel will premiere on Disney+ on June 8, 2022. Iman Vellani will then return in The Marvels, which is scheduled for release on July 28, 2023.
