Ms. Marvel is nearly here! How does one go about translating this beloved character and her story to life? We got to speak with head writer Bisha K. Ali and co-creator Sana Amanat on how they went about doing just that for Kamala’s entry into the MCU.
Ali and Amanat tell us the importance of representing Kamala and her community in a grounded and casual way to audiences, how the series might be effective in countering global Islamophobia with its nuanced portrayal of Muslims, what Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel stands for, keeping the spirit of the themes explored in the comics, and much more.
You can start watching Ms. Marvel streaming on Disney+ Wednesday, June 8.
