While the MCU waits to restart its impressive Phase 4 slate in a couple of weeks, fans now have their first look at a new hero coming in that slate - Kamala Khan. This comes thanks to the first full trailer for Ms. Marvel, which is set to arrive on Disney+ on June 8 before Iman Vellani teams up with Brie Larson on the big screen.

The trailer gave fans a look into the young new heroine's life as an Avengers fangirl and future Avenger as she takes her place alongside Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

Ahead of her first MCU movie alongside Carol Danvers and Monica Rambeau, Kamala Khan is set for a whirlwind adventure in learning what it means to be a hero. Setting up a true coming-of-age story for Vellani's heroine as she deals with school, family, and everyday teenager stuff, this series will be something new in the MCU's growing legacy.

The first trailer quickly became the talk of the MCU community following its debut, particularly being the next project to debut after Moon Knight and Doctor Strange 2. After the trailer's release, stars from all corners of the MCU shared their thoughts on what's coming in the franchise's 35th project since 2008.

MCU Stars React to Ms. Marvel Trailer

Ms. Marvel, Kamala Khan

Following the debut of the first trailer for Marvel Studios' Ms. Marvel, MCU stars and filmmakers took to social media to share their excitement for the Disney+ series' release.

Captain Marvel star Brie Larson offered Iman Vellani's hero an inspiring message ahead of their team-up effort in 2023's The Marvels:

"You ARE a superhero, Kamala."

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings star Simu Liu chimed in by stating how Marvel Studios projects are for people of all backgrounds, promising that Ms. Marvel will appeal to those that are being represented in it and those that are experiencing the series from an outsider's perspective:

"All Marvel projects are made for universal audiences, like Miss Marvel. The target audience for this one feels very wide and far-reaching. If you are in it, this will work very well for you. If you aren't, it will also work very well for you. ;)"

Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo praised Marvel for "reflecting the world we live in" and delivering a new diverse hero into the story:

"Marvel breaks new ground! Love you, Marvel for reflecting the world we live in. Welcome to the family, Kamala!"

Eternals star Kumail Nanjiani expects star Iman Vellani to be "amazing" in her solo series, while the trailer brought nothing but great feelings. The Pakistani-American actor/comedian behind Kingo felt emotional seeing more representation for people like him in the MCU:

"This trailer made me feel every positive feeling I am capable of feeling. Iman Vellani is going to be amazing in this show. I CANNOT WAIT."

Ms. Marvel star Saagar Shaikh shared how "blessed" he feels to join the MCU ahead of his Marvel debut in just under three months:

"i’m so blessed to be a part of this alhumdulillah. June 8th on Disney+"

Shaikh's co-star Rish Shah simply expressed how thrilled he is to share his work with the MCU fandom upon the series' Disney+ premiere:

"So excited to share this with the world on June 8th"

Zenobia Shroff, also in Ms. Marvel, teased how much chaos is in her own life as she feels the craziness coming from this trailer. Just as Ruffalo did, Shroff praised the representation coming in this series as she looks forward to its debut:

"I sit in the middle of complete chaos writing this as my apartment gets painted and a few new things get added and old ones taken away. Feels fitting . my mind feels a little bit of a jumble too but it’s a beautiful crazy for once ha ha please come along with us on this ride this is representation! this is brown power! this is Miss Marvel!!"

Loki Season 1 director Kate Herron shared the trailer with a short message praising Bisha K. Ali. Herron and Ali have a rapport with each other in the MCU, as Ali wrote Episode 3 of Loki before becoming the head writer and executive producer on Ms. Marvel:

"Yes Bisha K. Ali"

What If...? writer/executive producer A.C. Bradley teased that she had a hand in helping develop Ms. Marvel while sharing how much she can't wait for fans to see the story:

"Aaaahhhh! I had the huge honor to lend a hand (pun intended) on this amazing show! Can’t wait until the world discovers Ms. Marvel"

Ms. Marvel comic writer Sana Amanat shared the trailer and tagged the character's creator G. Willow Wilson along with Ali, teasing how busy she's been:

"Been busy. The #msmarvel trailer is here."

WandaVision star Julian Hilliard kept his response short and sweet as he shared how excited he is to see Kamala Khan in action:

"So excited for this one!"

Ms. Marvel Bringing Excitement for MCU in 2022

MCU fans and stars alike are always caught up in the excitement whenever a new trailer releases, which is no different from the current moment for Ms. Marvel. Even so, it's thrilling to see the caliber of actors and filmmakers that are so excited to see this show come to fruition, particularly for the representation it will add to the franchise.

Seeing Brie Larson so thrilled for her The Marvels co-star is something special as fans get ready to see her and Iman Vellani play two of the sequel's three powerful heroines. On top of that, Vellani getting support from someone with as long a tenure as Mark Ruffalo is certainly humbling as he preps for his own Disney+ show in She-Hulk.

Now, the wait continues to see more of what Ms. Marvel will add to the MCU narrative as fans look forward to this young heroine's true introduction. Her time around her high school classmates and her family will give fans a new taste of what it's like to grow up in a world filled with superheroes, even with concerns about how her powers will translate.

Ms. Marvel will debut on Disney+ on June 8, 2022.
