In a recent interview with BBC, Feige dropped hints, the MCU could introduce the teenage-superhero Miss Marvel and her alter-ego Kamala Khan.

“Ms. Marvel… is definitely sort of in the works,” Feige said.

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

“We have plans for that once we’ve introduced Captain Marvel to the world,” he added.

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

Who is Miss Marvel?

Created by Sana Amanat and Stephen Wacker, writer G Willow Wilson and artist Adrian Alphona, the Pakistani-American teen superhero from Jersey City made a splashy comics debut with her own title in 2014 and has gone on to become one of the most popular new Marvel characters today, with her vibrant, peppy, and hilariously awkward character with shape-shifting abilities
