The first official Ms. Marvel trailer is finally here! Though only two minutes long, the promo video gives a great overview of what fans can expect from the upcoming Disney+ series that will bring Marvel’s first Muslim superhero into its cinematic universe.
Ms. Marvel trailer
The trailer opens with 16-year-old Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) daydreaming about her superhero idol Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) while in class. The video then cuts to Kamala being scolded by a teacher for her behavior.
Kamala then opens up to her best friend, Bruno Carrelli (Matt Lintz), about how her obsession with superheroes affects her daily life. “Maybe they’re right. I spend too much time in fantasy land,” Kamala reflectingly tells Bruno.
But before Kamala can even distance herself from the fantasy world she has created, the trailer shows her transforming into a superhero similar to Captain Marvel after putting on a magical bracelet. Though her family noticed that something has changed about her since that moment, Kamala only shares her secret with Bruno.
“What does it feel like?” Bruno asks Kamala about her newfound superpowers.
“Cosmic,” she replies.
