Riz Ahmed to co-write the screenplay for Ms Marvel

Kamala Khan Riz Ahmed to co-write the screenplay for Ms Marvel

Feige revealed during an interview with the BBC that Marvel already has "plans" to bring Kamala into the Marvel Cinematic Universe sometime after her idol Captain Marvel is introduced in the films next year.

After Kevin Feige hinted at the introduction of the Muslim superhero Kamala Khan - alias Ms. Marvel - to the MCU, Riz Ahmed and Mindy Kaling got pretty excited. Nanjiani co-wrote the Oscar nominated screenplay for The Big Sick with his wife Emily V. Gordon, while Kaling has been nominated for and won numerous awards for her work on both The Office and her solo TV series The Mindy Project. Comic book creator Sana Amanat is the brains behind the character, who is the director and editor at Marvel Comics.

Ms Marvel, aka Kamala Khan and Marvel's first Muslim superhero, was launched in the comics back in 2013.

Albert then asked Hayes to "hurry up" and finish taking his photos of the home so he could "get out" of her neighborhood. Checking out of an Airbnb . "Young black man out here trying to do what's right, and we get the police called on us".

But Riz doesn't just want it all for himself; the actor, rapper and activist wants to co-write the script with Mindy Kaling and Kumail Nanjiani. "Ms. Marvel, which is another character in the comic books, the Muslim hero who is inspired by Captain Marvel, is definitely sort of in the works".

We will remind, filmmakers are more willing to make a female team of Marvel and it seems even more likely. I am obsessed with this comic book, I've read them all. In the comic books, Ms Marvel's refers to her alter-ego Kamala Khan, a Pakistani-American teenager from New Jersey.

Ahmed's suggestion stems from the fact that he is British-Pakistani, while Kaling has an Indian heritage and Nanjiani is Pakistani-American.
