Being a teenager isn’t easy, what with bullies, unrequited crushes, and overbearing guidance counselors. But imagine having to deal with all of that and having superpowers? That sounds like a recipe for disaster, but so entertaining to watch, and if the newly released trailer for Marvel Studios’ Ms. Marvel is any indication, it’s bound to be a breakout hit.
The trailer for the Disney+ Marvel series—which debuts Wednesday, June 8— gives viewers a first look at the MCU’s first Muslim superhero as she tries to balance high-school life, her family and her emerging superpowers.
Ms. Marvel will launch exclusively on Disney+ on June 8. Ms. Marvel follows Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), a Muslim American teenager growing up in Jersey City. An avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, Kamala is a superhero mega fan with an oversized imagination— particularly when it comes to Captain Marvel. Yet Kamala feels like she doesn’t fit in at school and sometimes even at home—that is, until she gets super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life gets better with superpowers, right?
The cast also includes Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Matt Lintz, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Nakli, Azhar Usman, Travina Springer and Nimra Bucha.
