Marvel Studios is back to being as busy as ever after a six-month worldwide shutdown with multiple projects shooting and going into post-production for Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Thus far, three of the MCU's new movies have completed all initial photography, and the same is true for some of the franchise's brand new shows premiering on Disney+ as well.

Even considering the amount of work that is already complete for Phase 4, this is the MCU's biggest slate of projects yet in terms of volume, and there are still months and years of work ahead of Kevin Feige and his team. This includes new mini-series featuring brand new characters that will debut in the MCU like Oscar Isaac's Moon Knight, Tatiana Maslany's She-Hulk, and Iman Vellani's Ms. Marvel.

Thanks to a new social media blast, Ms. Marvel seems to be making some headway that should have fans gearing up the excitement again...


According to a new release from insider Charles Murphy the Marvel Studios Disney+ mini-series Ms. Marvel is now in the early stages of filming in Atlanta. His tweet confirming this news can be seen below:

Even though the shoot is reportedly in its earliest stages right now, Murphy also tweeted this for anybody hopeful for some early photo leaks:

This comes after news that Ms. Marvel actor Saagar Shaihk had arrived in Atlanta, and even though there is no official confirmation that he's there for the MCU series, this is some supporting evidence indicating that production on the show has begun. Shaihk's Instagram story confirming his arrival can be seen below:

Multiple reports have released information that Ms. Marvel on Disney+ would be shooting principal photography between November 2020 and March 2021, and this new blast from Charles Murphy practically confirms that this is still the case. Kamala Khan's debut appearance in the MCU has been one of the most exciting parts of Phase 4 ever since it was first announced at D23 2019, and it's a fantastic sign hearing these reports that the project's filming is finally getting underway.

Ms. Marvel has a star-studded team bringing the show to life, including the addition of Bad Boys for Life directing duo Adil El Arbi and Billal Fallah behind the camera and Hollywood newcomer Iman Vellani as the leading actress, and the show should help to bring a brand new perspective to the MCU through Kamala Khan. Living as a young teenager in a world full of superheroes and aliens, Khan will have to rely on her will as she masters her new stretchy skills with her close family and friends beside her for the journey.

There is no confirmed date for Ms. Marvel's ultimate debut on Disney+, although its current release timeframe is sometime in 2022.
