One fact you probably didn't know about the 19-year-old actress is that she was already a huge fan of Marvel long before she auditioned to play the character. In fact, she recently revealed that she dressed up as Ms. Marvel for Halloween when she was 15 and now, the rising star gets to live her dream.

Apart from that, she also happens to be a huge fan of one MCU show and it sorta got her into trouble with Kevin Feige while filming.

Speaking with Marvel Entertainment, Saagar Shaikh, who plays Kamala's older brother Aamir shared an instance where Vellani's MCU fangirling made Feige furious. Turns out, the Marvel Studios boss didn't appreciate the fact that Iman was streaming WandaVision on her phone.

Shaikh recalls: "I’ll tell you a secret. Kevin Feige got mad at her for watching WandaVision on her phone. He’s like, ‘They’re not made for phones! Watch it on TV!’"

It's quite evident that Vellani and Feige have already developed a great working relationship together which will totally help the newcomer in the long run. I mean, with Ms. Marvel getting rave reviews from fans and critics alike, it's already safe to assume that Kamala Khan will be sticking around in the MCU for years to come.

Ms. Marvel is streaming exclusively on Disney+.
