It looks like the Hawkeye series is going to get some breathing room this fall/winter, as the Disney+ series Ms. Marvel from Marvel Studios seemingly is no longer on deck for a release in 2021.
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 superpowers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life is easier with superpowers, right?
Variety is echoing what we’ve all now assumed as Disney+ has announced November 12 for their Disney+ Day presentation, that the Ms. Marvel series (formerly coming late 2021 alongside Hawkeye) will be pushed to sometime in 2022.
However, Variety didn’t name a month (we assume it’ll drop in Q1 of 2022) or specific date for the series and likely are going off deduction given a December spot is unlikely at this point with The Book of Boba Fett on the horizon that month.
Ms. Marvel had been shooting in Atlanta and Thailand.
Iman Vellani, who plays Kamala/Ms. Marvel is currently in England shooting Nia DaCosta’s Captain Marvel sequel, The Marvels, at Longcross Studios and might end up appearing in the Secret Invasion series. The Disney+ series that also features S.W.O.R.D. is also shooting in the same area (possibly on the same stages). There has been an expectation for months the two casts will cross-pollinate for the two MCU projects.
It’ll be interesting to see if the MCU incarnation of Kamala will embrace the connection to Inhumans (it’s been rumored they won’t) or take a different path given they’re unlikely going to jump into that group anytime given the proximity to the failed Marvel Television series along with Eternals and their X-Men reboot on the horizon.
Over the summer, The Ronin caught wind that Ms. Marvel is aiming to shoot something in the United Kingdom, likely in 2022. We haven’t been able to confirm if this is a button/end-credit sequence or a signal that Ms. Marvel is getting a second season like Loki (the latter is extremely likely).
Other Marvel shows releasing in 2022 include She-Hulk, Moon Knight, and the aforementioned Secret Invasion.
