‘Ms. Marvel’ Producer Explains Guardians of the Galaxy Easter Eggs
With the highly-anticipated Ms. Marvel finally arriving at the MCU in her very own Disney+ series, one of its big draws is a story from the perspective of a teenager obsessed with the in-universe superheroes; in a recent interview, Ms. Marvel’s producer explains those Guardians of the Galaxy easter eggs.
It is not hyperbole to say that Kamala Khan has become one of the most popular characters in the Marvel Universe; with her run in the comics prompting an ascension unto fan-favorite status.
Created by G. Willow Wilson, Kamala’s Ms. Marvel is a great meeting place between a character whose situation and experiences are incredibly unique to her religious and racial affiliations, while also being completely relatable to those not familiar with those same connections.
It was a long time coming, but she has finally arrived in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with one of the more interesting aspects of the series being how they handle her obsession with the Marvel Universe as a whole.
That has only added to the show thus far, as it has been incredible to see how Kamala views the Marvel Universe that we have seen evolve over the last decade; with one Ms. Marvel producer discussing those Guardians of the Galaxy easter eggs seen at the AVengersCon event shown in the first episode.
The moment in question is a t-shirt that reads, “New Jersey AvengersCon; Mr. Tree’ implying that Groot is known to those that live in the Marvel Universe as Mr. Tree.
Sana Amanat talked to The Direct about this, stating, “Right now there’s just an assumption. A big event like this? There’s gonna be some sort of recording element of it, people have probably seen it, found a way to capture some of that footage.”
Amanat continues, “So I think the fun thing we played around with is what is their interpretation of the Guardians if they see them in the Battle of Earth and they have no idea who the Guardians look like?”
“There’s a lot of fun playing around with the fact that they don’t even know their names and are making up names for them.” the producer noted, “I think they called Groot Mr. Tree. Rocket also had a terrible name, Racoon-something. Star-Lord was Star-Boy.”
The Ms. Marvel producer concluded by stating, “It was kind of funny spins of what people think the Guardians are called, and probably things that would make them very upset.”
It has, thus far, been one of the coolest things about the series; seeing how these individuals- with just secondary knowledge of these events- would recall and recount them.
