Ms. Marvel Actress Iman Vellani Compares Filming Series and The Marvels

In a chat with Empire Magazine, Iman Vellani shared the difference in filming Ms. Marvel and The Marvels, "It was absolutely amazing, a completely different experience. You have the same amount of filming time almost to film a lot less content, so everything was more relaxed."

Vellani added that her co-stars gave her good support especially being the new girl in town, "Brie and Teyonah were the most amazing support system, just to have people who have the same pains from doing stunts. We were just crying together. It’s awesome.”

Iman Vellani will be making her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in her very own titular series, Ms. Marvel, where the origins of her powers will be shown before she makes her theatrical appearance in The Marvels where she would co-star with Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel and Teyonah Paris’ Monica Rambeau.

Kamala Khan is expected to join the ranks of other youngsters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Peter Parker/ Spider-Man, Yelena Belova as the new Black Widow, Kate Bishop as the newest marksman, America Chavez who is now at Kamar Taj studying her powers, and presumably the children of Wanda, Billy and Tommy, who debuted their powers in WandaVision.

Iman Vellani will be portraying Ms. Marvel/ Kamala Khan and will be joined by Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Mohan Kapur, Matt Lintz, Yasmeen Fletcher, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff, Laith Naki, Azher Usman, Travina Springer, Nimra Bucha, and Laura Marsden.
