Mindy Kaling, Riz Ahmed want in on Ms Marvel movie

16 May 2018

It's a thrilling time for our Brown actors in Hollywood, in particular, Riz Ahmed, Kumail Nanjiani and Mindy Kaling who are shimmering overseas, making us desis incredibly proud.

Pakistani-British actor Riz Ahmed has offered to write the script for the first Muslim origin superhero, Ms Marvel, which has been creating waves worldwide.

Kaling is best known for her work in The Office, The Mindy Project and recently in A Wrinkle in Time.

Nanjiani - who hasn't responded to the tweet - is a Pakistani-American who won acclaim for his semi-autobiographical romantic comedy film The Big Sick.

Kaling had replied that she is "obsessed" with the character, while Nanjani is yet to reply back. 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. Khan is Marvel's first Muslim character to headline her own comic book and made her first appearance in Captain Marvel #14 (August 2013) before going on to star in the solo series Ms. Marvel in February 2014. "We have plans for that once we introduce Captain Marvel".

Marvel is now in the midst of shooting Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson and will move onto introducing the teenage-superhero.

Kamala Khan AKA Ms. Marvel is a Pakistani-American teenager living in New Jersey who finds she has exceptional shape shifting abilities and decides to become a super heroine following in the footsteps of her idol, Carol Danvers who is Captain Marvel.
