If there is anything Marvel fans are waiting for in 2019, it’s the movie – Avengers: Endgame. Suffice to say that when Brie Larson hit the theatres as Captain Marvel, fans went crazy to see a female superhero on the screen.
So, when the Avengers: Endgame director, Joe Russo, said that his team is in talks with Priyanka Chopra for a project, we couldn’t help but wonder what this hush-hush project is. Because of two reasons- a) We are talking about Marvel Cinematic Universe here, and b) This involves our very own ‘Desi Girl’!
When the 47-year-old filmmaker was asked in a press conference in Mumbai if he would like to collaborate with any Bollywood actor, the director didn’t hesitate to answer. With a smile on his face, he answered that he would love to work with Priyanka Chopra, who is transitioning into global status now.
Last year, Marvel Studios Chief, Kevin Feige, announced that they were planning to bring the comic superhero Kamala Khan AKA Ms Marvel on the silver screen. As soon as the statement reached fans, they didn’t wait to start suggesting PeeCee’s name for the role of this female Superhero.
Now, with Joe Russo admitting to the fact that he wants to work with Priyanka Chopra, don’t we all come to the conclusion that Priyanka will most likely land the role in the next Avengers film?
Well, only time will tell, but for those who are unaware of Ms Marvel, here are a few facts about her for you:
1. Kamala Khan, a superhero of Pakistani origin, is the first ever headlining Muslim-American character in the comics.
2. Kamala is a typical American teenager, who loves the superheroes especially the Avengers and Captain Marvel.
3. Kamala Khan is an ‘Inhuman’ with shape-shifting abilities and assumes the mantle of Ms. Marvel from her idol Carol Danvers after Danvers becomes Captain Marvel.
4. On being exposed to the Terrigen Mist, Kamala becomes a polymorph, which gives her the ability to stretch her body in every way one can imagine.
5. Kamala can look like anyone and also has healing abilities.
Wow! Looks like Ms Marvel is ready to blow our minds. It makes us wonder how PeeCee will look playing this uber cool superhero!
