Ms. Marvel: The Next Marvel Superhero Gets a Super-Charming Trailer

If you need something to look forward to, June is just full of things. Stranger Things and The Umbrella Academy premiere in June—and so does Marvel’s much-anticipated Ms. Marvel, for which we now have an extremely endearing trailer as well as an official release date! Iman Vellani is Kamala Khan, a Muslim teen and Captain Marvel superfan who has a totally normal life—until she doesn’t. Has anyone ever in a Marvel movie ever said “I’m a superhero!” with such absolute joy?

Though the name Ms. Marvel has been in use since the ’70s, Kamala Khan was created by Marvel editors Sana Amanat and Steve Wacker, writer G. Willow Wilson, and artist Adrian Alphona. Kamala, a Pakistani American kid from Jersey City, first appeared in a Captain Marvel story before getting her own book—the first volume of which went on to win a Hugo Award. (The shot at the end of the trailer is straight from the cover of one issue.)

Ms. Marvel the series is created by Bisha K. Ali (who worked on Loki). It also stars Saagar Shaikh as Kamala’s brother Aamir, Mohan Kapur and Zenobia Shroff as her parents Muneeba and Yusuf, Matt Lintz as her best friend Bruno, and Aramis Knight as the vigilante Red Dagger. It seems like the source of her powers might be a little different in the show than in the comics (where Kamala discovers she has Inhuman lineage), but it’s hard to say for sure from just a trailer.

Ms. Marvel premieres on Disney+ on June 8th.
