Marvel Studio announces first-ever Muslim superhero to hit the big screen

Feige explained that he wants to introduce Captain Marvel, played by Brie Larson, to the world first before anything else, but he did tell the BBC: "Ms. Marvel... is definitely sort of in the works".

"Captain Marvel", starring Brie Larson in the role of Carol Danvers, hits theaters March 6.

Upcoming MCU flick "Captain Marvel" isn't due in theaters until next year, but a groundbreaking hero inspired by her may eventually be joining her on the big screen. She eventually got her solo comic series titled Ms Marvel from 2014.

Ms Marvel will be the studio's first of its kind Muslim hero. But we have a trivia for you that you might find very interesting.

With the Marvel Cinematic Universe essentially being rebooted after "Avengers 4", there are a lot of speculations as to which characters in the comics will make their debut next.

Mr Feige has not specified who would play superhero Ms Marvel - but fans are speculating that it could be Indian actress Priyanka Chopra. "We are doing Captain Marvel right now". Her addition to the franchise was also teased in the post-credits scene of Avengers: Infinity War.

Incidentally, Ms Marvel aka Kamala is greatly inspired by Captain Marvel, and her superhero moniker is also kind of a homage to her. "Captain Marvel represents an ideal that Kamala pines for". Now, Kamala is a polymorph with super-healing powers and the ability to embiggen or shrink herself (or parts of herself) when she sees fit.

Chopra, 35, is already the voice behind Ms Marvel in the Avengers Academy mobile game making her a likely candidate for the role, some fans have argued.
