SPOILERS – Attention, the article below reveals information on the final of Miss Marvel. If you don’t want to know the content, please don’t read the following…
It’s official, Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) is a mutant. This is what his friend Bruno reveals to him (Matt Lintz) at the end of the last episode of the first season of Miss Marvelaired last Wednesday on Disney+. And who says mutant, says X-Men… The series therefore prepares for the arrival of the very popular team within the MCU to the delight of the stars of the show.
It is nevertheless a small leap of freedom compared to the comics in which Miss Marvel is not a mutant but an Inhuman. On Reddit, his interpreter shared his joy about this change. “I think the MCU is in a very different situation from the comics and so we were able to go in that direction with Kamala”, she begins.
A moment of anthology…
Then specify:To be fair, the original idea for the character in the comics was to make her a mutant so I’m over the moon that it’s real and that we got to do it. Sana Amanat [la créatrice de la version papier de Kamala et productrice de la série, ndlr] and I freaked out, every cell in our brains exploded when we found out we could do it.”
And to conclude:I’m a big fan of the X-Men, what an incredible honor to be the first official mutant in the MCU!!!”
Iman Vellani is also not the only one to have loved the little replica of Bruno finally introducing mutants into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Rish Shahwho plays Kamran in the series, told the HollywoodReporter about the reveal scene:
“It was only shared with very specific people. Obviously, it was a huge, crazy moment, and all of our brains exploded. We were all trying to process this information and stay calm when we learned about it. I was on set when this scene happened, and I was watching from afar.
So I could see the pure joy on everyone’s faces when this scene was filming (…). But what an honor to be able to bring that into the MCU. It’s probably one of the most exciting things.”
… which almost did not see the light of day!
But the most amazing thing about all of this is that it wasn’t even planned to make Kamala the first mutant in the MCU at the start. “It wasn’t in the early versions of the script at all.“, indeed confided the creator of the series, Bisha K. Aliin an interview with HollywoodReporter.
And to explain that his team of screenwriters first liked to imagine this twist without believing that it was really possible. “It seemed so outside of what was doable”, she recalled before indicating that very long after these first discussions, Sana Amanat finally spoke about it to Kevin Feigethe president of Marvel Studios.
“And Kevin said, ‘Yeah, okay, that sounds good’”, revealed Bisha K. Ali. Quite simply ! After telling this incredible genesis, the showrunner assured not to know more about the introduction of the X-Men in the Marvel universe but to be delighted to have had the opportunity to be the first to mention the mutant gene.
And if the screenwriter does not know either if Miss Marvel will be entitled to a season 2, one thing is certain, the character will return to the front of the stage alongside Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) in The Marvelsexpected on July 26, 2023 at the cinema.
