This Wednesday, May 8, Disney + released the first episode of Miss Marvel, a mini-series closely related to Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) in the MCU. In the title role, Iman Vellani. The young actress confides in her eldest, Brie Larson.
After Moon Knight, Marvel introduces a relatively unknown MCU character to the screen: Kamala Khan, aka Miss Marvel. Interpreted by the very young Iman Vellani, the superheroine worships the Avengers and in particular Captain Marvel (Brie Larson). The miniseries, directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (Bad Boys 3, Batgirl), also serves as a prelude to The Marvels, a Nia DaCosta film (Candyman) due in theaters next year. Kamala Khan will team up there with Captain Marvel and Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris).
During an interview with ScreenRant, Vellani confided on his collaboration with Brie Larson and Teyonah Parris. “They are like my big sisters. They are very easy to work with, and they really take care of me,” she explains. “They're very protective of me, and I'm very grateful for that, because I was very intimidated by the idea of doing a film. I was the youngest, I was the new actress, and I was like, 'I want to be able to provide what these people need to do the scene with them. I don't want to just give them nothing.'” A rewarding experience that Imani Vellani will not soon forget.
These links between Miss Marvel and The Marvels
It was in November 2020 that Iman Vellani began filming Miss Marvel, a six-month long production . A few weeks later, the actress is again asked to join the set of The Marvels where we began to put scenes in the box in August 2021. The filming of the film has been completed last month, about thirty days before the broadcast of the new MCU mini-series on Disney +. If the two productions are intimately linked, it's a safe bet that they will have very different artistic orientations, Miss Marvel having only one superheroine as headliner unlike< em> The Marvels. See you next Wednesday on Disney + to discover the second episode of Kamala Khan's solo adventures!
