Kevin Feige Finally Explains the Change to Ms. Marvel’s Powers
With fan excitement for the upcoming series at an all-time high, Kevin Feige finally explains the change to Ms. Marvel’s powers.
The MCU is a never-ending conveyer belt of incredible projects, and with Moon Knight concluding in a fantastic season finale, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness dominating the box office, it is time to look ahead.
Ms. Marvel is set to be one of the biggest MCU series yet, with the focus on a character that has firmly established herself as one of the most beloved Marvel heroes.
Kamala Khan has endeared herself to audiences during her vast history in the Marvel comic universe, and her fandom of all things Marvel, as well as her relatable struggles as a Muslim-American teenager, have made her a fan favorite.
With her MCU debut incoming, and a brand new teaser showcasing what we can expect out of this live-action adaptions, many fans were outspoken about one specific, and very apparent, alteration to the beloved comic book character.
With no answers in sight, Kevin Feige finally explains why the MCU has changed Ms. Marvel’s powers for her Disney+ series.
In an interview with Empire, Feige stated, “We adapt the comics; it’s not an exact translation. [Kamala] came about in a very specific time within the comic-book continuity. She is now coming into a very specific time within the MCU continuity. And those two things didn’t match.”
The MCU architect then went on to say, “What we will learn about where those powers come from, and how they come about, is specific to the MCU.”
The famed producer concluded by stating, “You will see great comic splash panels ins some of our action sequences. IF you want big, giant hands and arms, will they’re here in spirit, if not in stretchy, plastic-type ways.”
It does make sense for the MCU to adapt Kamala for a brand new medium, and we can only hope that the qualities that make her so beloved remain in this live-action adaptation.
