MS. MARVEL Promo Image Provides A First Official Look At Iman Vellani In Full Costume
An image of a Ms. Marvel standee has found its way online, giving us a first look at star Iman Vellani fully suited-up as the teenage hero. Plus, it looks like those new powers have been confirmed!
We're still waiting on a trailer for Ms. Marvel, but we do now have a new look at Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) in full costume thanks to a promotional standee for the Disney+ series.
We've seen several set photos of the actress suited-up, of course, but this marks our first "official" glimpse of the teenage hero. The image would also seem to confirm that Khan will boast some new abilities when she makes her live-action debut.
A rumor recently did the rounds that this take on the character will utilize purple light-constructs in a similar fashion to Green Lantern, and Kamala certainly appears to be powering-up some sort of violet-tinged light on her left arm. Whether she will also retain her elasti-powers from the comic books remains to be seen.
In the comics, Khan acquires her powers from exposure to the Inhuman Terrigen Mists, but we're hearing the show will retcon this part of her origin (no surprise there) to make her abilities magic in nature.
No premiere date for Ms. Marvel has been announced, but it is expected to hit Disney+ before the end of the year.
