Los Angeles, September 24: After witnessing not a single release in 2020 for the first time since 2009, Marvel Studios roared back with a number of titles in 2021 and how. The studio behind most of the fan-favorite comic book superheroes, leaving no stone unturned to make up for the dull pandemic year with nine titles currently announced to premiere in theaters and on Disney Plus in 2021.
Among the nine Marvel titles in 2021, six have already been released either in theaters or Disney+. Initially, the studio planned to release 10 titles, but following a number of unexpected 2021 premieres across the platform, Marvel has now pushed its one of the most anticipated Disney Plus shows, "Ms. Marvel".
Marvel's first Muslim lead character and one of the newest characters within the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) gets her own Disney Plus show, with newcomer Iman Vellani in the title role as Ms. Marvel, also known as 16-year-old Pakistani-American Kamala Khan, who has a particular fondness for Captain Marvel.
Kevin Feige headed studio had initially announced the late 2021 premiere date for "Ms. Marvel", but now postponed it to 2022 after so many shows and movies took over the calendar in 2021. No exact release date has been confirmed, but Ms. Marvel's exciting premise is enough to keep the excitement building for now.
Created by Bisha K. Ali, Ms. Marvel also features Aramis Knight as the vigilante Red Dagger, Matt Lintz as Kamala's best pal Bruno Carrelli, Mohan Kapur as her dad Yusuf, and Zenobia Shroff as her mum. Meanwhile, Iman Vellani will also feature in "The Marvels" - a sequel to the $1.1 billion-grossing sensation "Captain Marvel" starring Brie Larson in the title role. It will release in theaters on 11 November 2022.
