Going into 2021, it was thought that Marvel Studios’ upcoming series Ms. Marvel would premiere sometime in the fall and before Hawkeye (November 23). However, in August, it was revealed that the Disney+ show had been delayed till early 2022. Now according to one of the show’s stars, the series might have once again been pushed back.
In response to a fan on Twitter, actor Mohan Kapur (who plays Kamala Khan’s father, Yusuf) revealed that the series won’t be released until June or July.
Now it’s entirely possible that Kapur’s post is inaccurate and that the series is still slated for a January/February/March release. But given that he does have a significant role in it, you do have to think that he does have some inside knowledge of what the studios’ plans are.
As for why it’s being delayed again, there could be multiple reasons. For one, it could simply be a tactical decision by Disney to help boost subscribes for Disney+ in the Summer. It would also move it closer to The Marvels film (February 2023), which will also include Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan.
Another possible reason for the later release is that the studio might need more time to work on it and make changes. Over the Summer, concept art leaks revealed that Kamala’s powers would differ from what she has in the comics. It’s possible that the studio heard the fan’s outrage and decided to make the change.
Hopefully, we’re getting closer to knowing exactly when the series will hit Disney+. Next month the company is slated to release a special on the streamer that will tease what’s to come in the MCU. Could a Ms. Marvel release date be revealed in it? Will just have to wait and see.
