The next Marvel Studios project on Disney+ is going to be the Oscar Isaac-led Moon Knight. But what comes after? Well, then it will finally be time to introduce the hero who missed their train last year: Ms. Marvel. Starring Iman Vellani, the show will see Kamala Khan, a superhero fangirl, receive the superpowers she’s always dreamed of having.
The show was originally set to bow last year, but due to some behind-the-scenes circumstances, it was delayed into this summer—June 8 to be exact. But now it’s finally time for her to get the spotlight she dreams about on the daily.
Not much is known about the overall plot, except how the villains may come in the form of the mysterious ClanDestine group and a not-so-friendly government agency by the name of NICE. Oh, and the titular character’s entire power set will be completely different for her live-action debut.
A new trailer just dropped for the series that gave audiences a proper look at what to expect, and in it, several notable MCU mainstays made some fun cameos.
Ant-Man and Rocket Spotted
A brand new trailer for Ms. Marvel was released today, and in it, fans spotted some familiar superheroes.
Up first came a trio of heroes featured on a shirt Iman Vellani's Kamala Khan sported while hanging out with her friends.
On the shirt, Brie Larson's Captain Marvel can be seen alongside Evangeline Lilly's Wasp and Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie.
Paul Rudd's Ant-Man also managed to squeeze in, thanks to a fun pencil drawing in Kamala's journal.
Finally, there was Rocket Raccoon, who showed up as a statue-display behind the titular hero just as she begins experiencing her powers.
The Avengers are on Ms. Marvel’s Mind
With the show focusing on a hero who's obsessed with superheroes, there was no doubt that fans would end up seeing various cameos of previous heroes in some form or another. After all, she is sporting that cosplay Captain Marvel look for a lot of the footage.
Since Kamala seems so familiar with them, it would seem these five who made a cameo (Valkyrie, Captain Marvel, Wasp, Ant-Man, Rocket) are pretty well known in the public sphere. The one who makes the most sense is Rocket, seeing as he was an Avenger during those five years of The Blip.
Ant-Man and Wasp’s popularity would have had to be pretty notable prior to the Snap, or maybe they had a sudden surge in popularity after Avengers: Endgame. Valkyrie would have had to make quite an impression during Endgame's third act action sequence as well to make it on a high schooler’s t-shirt.
But then again, maybe the final battle against Thanos at the Avengers Compound is known in full detail by the public. Fingers crossed that the show at least has a throwaway line to hint as to how Kamala knows some of her many icons.
Ms. Marvel hits Disney+ on June 8.
