Marvel Studios has a new league of superheroes debuting in the next phase to take over the mantles of OG Avengers, one of them is Kamala Khan aka Ms Marvel, but can she really replace Brie Larson’s, Captain Marvel?
Ever since the D23 Expo in 2019, fans have been doused in speculation and theories about Marvel’s latest TV show Ms Marvel. The teenage superhero will debut in the future phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is all set to air on Disney+ in the year 2022.
The show was announced to the public by Marvel Head, Kevin Feige alongside several other series for next MCU Phases.
Kamala Khan Replacing Captain Marvel
Ms Marvel is set to introduce Marvel’s first Muslim superhero, Kamala Khan, into the cinematic universe. Kamala first made an appearance in the comics in 2015. She comes across as a Captain Marvel fan who is exhilarated by her hero’s endeavours. Inspired by Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel, Kamala takes her hero’s mantle when she discovers her powers.
Kamala is a Pakistani-American girl growing up in Jersey City. The teenage hero has a gift to manipulate her physical form on a molecular level. That gives her the ability to shapeshift and change her physical size from big to small.

Similarly, the rumours suggest in the MCU Ms Marvel will take forward the legacy of Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel. Like most of the OG Avengers Carol Danvers too will pass the baton to Kamala Khan.
Recently, director of Black Widow confirmed that Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) will take up the mantle of Black Widow. Similarly, Sam Wilson aka Falcon will be the new Captain America of the MCU after Avengers: Endgame. Upcoming Disney+ She-Hulk is supposed to replace the Hulk.
In the past decade, Marvel Studios have used most of its high profile characters in a go with future phases set to replace them and build a new Avengers team.

Making the use of its diverse platforms Marvel has already launched Ms Marvel as the protagonist of the new PS4 games. It is a further attempt to familiarize the new character to the potential audience.
However, despite studios’ efforts, the real question stays, ‘whether fans will subscribe to a platform just to watch a new character?’
Another rising problem is ‘whether characters will be compared by the audience?’ Will Florence Pugh be as great Black Widow as Scar Jo or can new teenage actors taking over a serious mantle will be acceptable by the audience?
