Disney+ and Marvel’s newest series, “Ms. Marvel,” just dropped its first trailer. The show — which will be the seventh Marvel show created for the streamer — stars Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan, a 16-year-old girl from a Muslim, Pakistani-American family who lives in Jersey City. Kamala — who idolizes the Avengers, especially Captain Marvel — is struggling to find her place in the world when she ends up with superpowers of her own, making her just like the heroes she’s spent hours fangirling over.
Like the “Moon Knight” series, “Ms. Marvel” introduces not just a brand-new hero to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but also a totally new cast of characters. Here’s everything you need to know about Kamala Khan, her upcoming Marvel show, and her place in the greater MCU.
