Riz Ahmed to co-write the screenplay for Ms Marvel

The fictional character Kamala Khan which has shape-shifting abilities has already appeared in animated series

Marvel Studios' CEO Kevin Feige spoke about the possibility of the Muslim superhero coming to the big screen earlier this month with BBC.

Ms. Marvel or Kamala Khan is a 16-year-old Pakistani American hailing from New Jersey, who tries to overcome the troubles that plague teens in America, and revolves around how life changes for the Muslim gal who is gifted with superhero powers.

Ahmed took to Twitter to reach out fellow actors Mindy Kaling and Kumail Nanjiani for the project.

Obviously Ms. Marvel's introduction to the MCU still lies somewhere in the future, and possibly the somewhat distant future at that.

Then Kaling replied, revealing herself as a long-time Ms. Marvel fan.

According to recent reports, Ms Marvel is set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, following the success of the comics.

Marvel is now in the midst of shooting Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson and will move onto introducing the teenage-superhero. "We have plans for that once we've introduced Captain Marvel to the world". In 2014, Marvel released a separate comic for this character, making her the first Muslim, which received its own line of comics.

"So when do [Marvel Studios] want me, [Mindy Kaling], and [Kumail Nanjiani] to get started on the Ms. Marvel screenplay?"

Ahmed is a British-Pakistani, Kaling has Indian heritage while Nanjiani is Pakistani-American, and given their respective backgrounds, we certainly believe that a diverse creative team would suit Kamala's tale as a young Pakistani-American Muslim superhero on the fringes of society.

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.
