Mindy Kaling, Riz Ahmed want in on Ms Marvel movie

Source:@ricmc  Twitter

So Riz Ahmed has thrown his name into the ring to write Marvel Studio's Ms. Marvel movie.

Given their respective backgrounds (Ahmed is British-Pakistani, Kaling has Indian heritage and Nanjiani is Pakistani-American), it's obvious Ahmed wants to have a diverse creative team who can do justice to Kamala's story. Nanjiani co-wrote the Oscar nominated screenplay for The Big Sick with his wife Emily V. Gordon, while Kaling has been nominated for and won numerous awards for her work on both The Office and her solo TV series The Mindy Project.

After Riz suggested this, fans have been all for this joint venture!

And hey, Twitter helped make that Rihanna/Lupita Nyong'o buddy movie a reality, so getting Ahmed, Kaling, or Nanjiani involved with Ms. Marvel certainly isn't impossible.

He explained she is "another character in the comic books, the Muslim hero who is inspired by Captain Marvel".

Earlier Marvel Studio president Kevin Feige had dropped the hint that there will more to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) after the fourth Avengers film hits the cinema. "We have plans for that once we introduce Captain Marvel".

Khan is a teenage Pakistani American from Jersey City, New Jersey with shapeshifting abilities and assumes the mantle of Ms Marvel from her idol, Carol Danvers after Danvers becomes Captain Marvel.

Granted, there's no telling if any of the three will end up being involved with Marvel Studios' Ms. Marvel adaptation, much less when and how we could actually see it released.
