‘Ms. Marvel’ Writer Talks Original Plans for That Cameo
Many fans were on the lookout for when the series would introduce one character specifically, and with her arrival coming at the post-credit scene of the finale episode, the Ms. Marvel writer has opened up about the original plans for that cameo.
It is the highest-rated MCU project ever, and it has clearly become one of Phase Four best series to date, bringing to life its title character in a way that feels tremendously true to her place in the Marvel comics universe.
Kamala Khan’s journey from a normal Muslim-American teenager navigated her very convoluted life as a young adult in today’s world, to a superhero of the MCU was full of creativity vibrance, and honesty; and it primed the audience for what should be a tremendous second appearance for the character.
It has already been announced that Kamala will next be seen in The Marvels, and with that film impending, many fans were curious if one specific character would show up in the final episode; ultimately they did a post-credit scene that teased that the incoming film.
With the post-credit scene introducing Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel to the series, Ms. Marvel writer Bisha K. Ali spoke on the original plans for that cameo in a brand new interview with Variety.
Ali stated, “Certainly at the very, very, very beginning, way back when, that was part of the conversation. the more I kind of dug deeper into what I wanted to say with the show and what I wanted her to go through, it really had to be about her and her community, her family, and her friends.”
The Marvel writer added, “So carol’s meeting up with her after this journey that she been through in the season. She’s Kamala in her own right. She’s looking in the mirror at the end shes not seeing an initiation of Captain Marvel the way she’s seeing in Episode 1.”
“She’s seeing Kamala wearing a suit that her mother made for her, with the masks that Bruno made for her, with the sash from Red Dagger,” Ali continued, “Then, moments later, she gets her name from her own father. That moment is about her becoming her in her own right.”
Ali then noted, “So I think it would have really taken it off in a different direction if she’d met [Carol] any sooner than she will meet her, which is in the movie thas coming out next year. She’s still gonna be so excited and just so happy to meet when they finally do get to meet.”
“But in this journey, in this character arc,” Ali concluded, “it felt really important, actually, that they didn’t meet.”
