‘Ms. Marvel‘ Disney+ Series Has Finished Filming in Thailand. Marvel Studios has wrapped production on the upcoming Disney+ Original Series, Ms. Marvel. Iman Vellani will be making her debut in the upcoming series for Marvel Studios and Disney+, playing the iconic character Kamala Khan.
“Within the Marvel Universe, Khan is a teenage Pakistani-American from Jersey City, New Jersey with shapeshifting abilities who discovers that she has Inhuman genes in the aftermath of the “Inhumanity” storyline and assumes the mantle of Ms. Marvel from her idol Carol Danvers after Danvers becomes Captain Marvel.”
Ms. Marvel was filmed in Atlanta, GA and Thailand. Despite a third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic throughout Thailand, Marvel was able to attain a waiver allowing for production to be completed. The studio also reported there were “three bubbles” of production teams that allowed filming to continue even if a cast or crew member contracted the virus. Luckily, with frequent testing (twice a week), strict transportation and quarantine guidelines, it seems they have been able to wrap production unscathed.
Kamala Khan was also one of the main protagonists in the new Marvel’s Avengers video game that launched last September and is available for all major gaming consoles and platforms. It is currently unknown which elements of Kamala’s story from the comics will be added to the series. Adil El Arbi, Bilall Fallah, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Meera Menon are set to direct various episodes, with Kevin Feige acting as executive producer for the new series.
Ms. Marvel/Kamala Khan will also be featured in the upcoming Marvel Studios film, The Marvels, starring alongside Brie Larson (Captain Marvel) and Teyonah Parris (Monica Rambeau). Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things Disney+ and Marvel!
