The Ronin mentioned not too long ago that something related to the Loki series was going to shoot in the United Kingdom. Our latest update is that the Ms. Marvel series is potentially doing some filming there as well. Unlike with Loki, there haven’t been signs that Marvel would like to pursue a Season 2, but it wouldn’t be a surprise if they did as Marvel has left the door open to some shows getting multiple seasons. For the time being, I’m going to assume this is connected to Season 1.
While looking into this, we were able to confirm that Ms. Marvel head writer/executive producer Bisha K. Ali is developing a new sci-fi series called The Well. However, plot details are unknown or what this ultimately means for follow-up seasons of the Marvel superhero show.
It’s worth noting that Loki head writer Michael Waldron has been able to rewrite the Doctor Strange Into The Multiverse of Madness script from scratch, potentially write on the Kevin Feige-produced Star Wars project, and is reportedly going to be involved with Loki’s second season in some capacity. So, theses writers can juggle many different plates at once.
If Loki and Ms. Marvel were to “hypothetically” get Season 2 renewals from Disney they wouldn’t be able to begin production until sometime in 2022 at the earliest because of how many things are shooting there in 2021 along with the actors’ commitments to other stuff since wrapping. Moving the two shows from Atlanta to England would be an ordeal itself.
As far as we know, Kamala Khan actress Iman Vellani is going to be busy with Nia DaCosta’s The Marvels and could possibly appear in Secret Invasion too, since both MCU projects are featuring S.W.O.R.D. and will have primary stage locations in the United Kingdom. This may allow Marvel to have the two the projects cross-pollinate characters/cast members. We were able to confirm recently The Marvels is shooting mainly at Longcross Studios, the facility located in Surrey was just used for Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness.
Marvel Studios is bringing a lot of industry business to the United Kingdom with Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania, Moon Knight, and Guardians of The Galaxy Vol.3 set to shoot there in 2021 on top of The Marvels and Secret Invasion. Turning the London area into the next Atlanta could make some sense as the studio continues to expand the volume of things they are releasing on Disney+ and in theaters.
Pinewood Studios UK now has their own Volume/StageCraft via ILM, which could make the increased amount of MCU projects a little easier to handle.
The studio has confirmed the Ms. Marvel cast includes other folks such as Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Matt Lintz, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Naki, Azher Usman, Travina Springer, and Nimra Bucha. Episodes were directed by Adil El Arbi, Bilall Fallah, Meera Menon, and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy.
The Marvel Studios original series centers on fan-favorite Kamala Khan — a 16-year-old Pakistani-American growing up in Jersey City. A great student, avid gamer, and voracious fan-fic scribe, Kamala has a special affinity for superheroes, particularly Captain Marvel. However, Kamala struggles to fit in at home and at school — that is, until she gets super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life is easier with super powers, right?
Ms. Marvel will debut on Disney+ late 2021.
