Sana Amanat, who co-created Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel, said the character’s upcoming Disney+ series would preserve the character’s quirkiness.
Sana Amanat, the Marvel Comics editor who co-created Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel, promises that the character’s upcoming Disney+ series from Marvel Studios will be just as eccentric as her original comic books.
“The comic was a great source of inspiration for us. Of course, we had to make sure it fit in the MCU, but we also wanted to make sure it maintained the eccentricity and artistic difference that the comics had. We were looking for an MCU version of it “In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Amanat, who serves as a co-executive producer on Disney+’s Ms. Marvel, remarked.

“So, in this show, we’re doing things that we don’t do anywhere else in the MCU,” she concluded. “Kamala’s experience and crazy imagination are used to tell the story. I believe the brightness and colours, as well as where we go in the Marvel universe and Kamala’s realm, are what truly set it apart tonally and artistically.
“And I believe it should,” Amanat concluded. “It’s obviously a coming-of-age story, but it’s one told through the eyes of a young brown woman. That, in and of itself, I believe, will set it distinct. Her surroundings are naturally vibrant. She grew up in a vibrant atmosphere, not just because of her community, but also because of the city in which she lives. Jersey City is a chaotic, colourful, and multicultural area, and we wanted to show that off as well.”

The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Executive Producer Explains Why Ms. Marvel’s Powers Were Changed For The Disney+ Series
Amanat stated why this modification was made during the same EW interview. “Obviously, so much of the show is an adaptation,” she explained, “and we felt it was necessary to make sure that her powers were linked to broader tales in the Marvel Universe.” “After this series, we wanted to make sure there was a little more tale to tell. “She obviously joins The Marvels. The abilities appear to be different… I understand why people are outraged, but as someone who has known this character since the beginning, and having spoken with Willow about it, I believe Willow and I have always believed that this made sense. This was the correct decision since there are more important stories to tell.”
