Disney chief Bob Iger recently said that the Avengers franchise would continue after the ‘significant conclusion’ of 2019’s Avengers 4, suggesting that Marvel could potentially mine from over 7000 unexplored characters. One of those characters, according to Marvel boss Kevin Feige, is Kamala Khan aka Ms Marvel.
Responding to a tweet about Kamala Khan’s potential MCU debut, fans immediately started casting the role and at the top of the list was Priyanka. While not everyone was on board with this choice, several fans agreed that her South Asian heritage could be important for Marvel. Others pointed out that the character should be played by a Pakistani American actor.
Coincidentally, Priyanka has a history with the role as she had voiced Kamala Khan in a Marvel mobile video game.
