Recently it was reported that Marvel Studios’ upcoming Disney+ series Ms. Marvel was being delayed until 2022. Originally the show, which will star Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan (aka Ms. Marvel), was set to debut in the fall.
During Disney’s third-quarter earnings call this afternoon, CEO Bob Chapek all but confirmed the news of its delay. The Disney Chief failed to mention it when he listed shows (Hawkeye, The Book of Boba Fett) that will debut on the streaming service in 2021.
My guess is that the series will debut in either January or February. Hawkeye, which will be the next live-action MCU show, will premiere on November 24th. Slated for a six-episode run, the final episode is scheduled to be released on December 29th. Since the shows are not likely to overlap, that would put mid-January as the earliest it could premiere.
Ms. Marvel will not be the only time we see Vellani portray Kamala Khan in the MCU in 2022. The actress is also set to play the role in the film The Marvels, which will also star Brie Larson as Carol Danvers and Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau. That film will be released in theaters on November 11th.
