‘Ms. Marvel’ Producer Shares Concerns About Episode 5
It has been one of the most well-received series that Marvel Studios has ever put out, but has also been one of its most interesting conundrums, boasting some of the MCU’s lowest viewing numbers; which could fuel a Ms. Marvel producer sharing concerns over the upcoming episode 5.
There is no denying that Marvel’s robust and ever-expanding cinematic Universe has never experienced as perplexing a development as what has occurred with their most recent series debuting on Disney+.
Ms. Marvel is a character that has long been rumored for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with many fans clamoring for the arrival of Kamala Khan; a young hero who has undoubtedly become a fan favorite among comic book readers.
She is a feat in storytelling for the medium, as she represents both a particular struggle and experience through her own Muslim American heritage, while also being incredibly relatable to most everyone’s experience as a young adult trying to make sense of their impending place in the world.
With four episodes already released, Ms. Marvel has been a true feat of Marvel storytelling; presenting a fantastic look inside the world according to this beloved character, and beaming with a creative vibrance that perfectly encapsulates her youthful perspective.
But despite the series’ excellent reviews and reception from the critical community, it has maintained some of the poorest viewership numbers that Marvel- and even Disney+- have ever experienced.
That perplexing reality will only become more worrisome according to one of the Ms. Marvel producers, who recently spoke about concerns over the impending Episdoe 5 of the series.
Talking to Entertainment Weekly, Sana Amanat stated, “The next episode is going to be an interesting one. Full disclosure, it’s the episode I’m most nervous about. I think it’s really great, but we took some risks with that episode. So, I’m curious to know how people are going to respond to it.”
Amanat added, “Ultimately, this is a story about identity. How do you understand your identity without understanding what home is and what home means to you?”
