Ms. Marvel is currently in the middle of reshoots in Atlanta, Georgia, after leading actress Iman Vellani finished filming for the Captain Marvel sequel, The Marvels. The Disney+ show has received criticism from fans for its casting and changes to Kamala's powers, but many still hope these reshoots may mitigate some of these problems.

Unfortunately for those fans, it's unlikely these routine reshoots for Ms. Marvel will drastically change anything already filmed for the series. But that doesn't mean that these reshoots are simply pickups, as one onlooker was able to capture a photo of Kamala Khan running away, according to the photographer, from a robotic drone.

Atlanta Filming shared a new leaked photo from ongoing reshoots of Ms. Marvel in Atlanta, Georgia. The image shows Kamla Khan supposedly running away from "robotic drones" while wearing her replica Captain Marvel costume.

Atlanta Filming also commented that "The drone was really cool looking" and that it was "a physical prop that two guys carried," suggesting that it had an atypical design for a drone.


Influence of The Inventor?

In the comics, the only time Kamala Khan was ever really chased by a swarm of drones was when she faced her first supervillain in The Inventor, a crazed clone of Thomas Edison whose DNA sample was unfortunately contaminated by a pet cockatiel. The hybrid-clone would use his intelligence to create ridiculous machines to fight his enemies, including small, flying drones.

However, despite The Inventor being rumored years ago, it seems that the villain will be missing from Ms. Marvel's origin, even though his  his influence could still linger. The drones were described as "really cool looking" and needing to be operated by two people, and they could sport similar unique designs that The Inventor used in the comics.

Fans will find out what these drones will look like when they watch Ms. Marvel on Disney+ in mid-2022.
