With the release of Marvel Studios ‘Ms Marvel” series just weeks away, Disney has held some special previews of the film and selected members of the press have been able to watch the first two episodes of the show. The social media embargo has been lifted, so critics have been revealing their early thoughts on the film, including my own.
Marvel Studios’ “Ms. Marvel” is a new, original series that introduces Kamala Khan, a Muslim American teenager growing up in Jersey City. An avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, Kamala is a Super Hero megafan 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 superpowers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life gets better with superpowers, right?
Here’s my own social media first reaction to the first two episodes of “Ms Marvel”:
#MsMarvel is another good #disneyplus series. The 1st two episodes help introduce the world to who Kamala Khan is & how she gets her "new" superpowers. Iman Vellani is fantastic. It skews younger than previous shows, think more like "Homecoming". Can't wait to see the rest! pic.twitter.com/SfC0F3feIN
And here are some other social media reactions on “Ms Marvel”:
#MsMarvel is a vibrant and exciting story that takes a plunge into both the MCU and Pakistani culture. Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan is absolutely fantastic, as shes likely to become an MCU favorite. Not to mention her new powers are a phenomenal addition. pic.twitter.com/7zwpviMOgc
I was given the opportunity to watch the first two episodes of #MsMarvel and… WOW! The world we’re thrown into is extremely exhilarating and SO COLORFUL. I can’t stress enough how fantastic Iman Vellani is as Kamala Khan and might I say…. I think I like her new powers more. pic.twitter.com/YKEMwhvOcl
#MsMarvel is a bright and colorful high school fever dream. Kamala Khan’s superhero journey is nuanced and her navigation of the modern world as a Pakistani-American Muslim teenager is relatable yet culturally specific. Iman Vellani is a delight. And those perfect music bangers. pic.twitter.com/Z49mlCHRik
#MsMarvel Ep1 and 2 are pure joy! Straightaway thrust you into her cartoonish fangirl world as she struggles with her identity being Pakistani-American. 🇵🇰 She’s excited to have powers but doesn’t know how to use them, ends up fumbling and embarrassed, It’s all very relatable. pic.twitter.com/x7kV0wj1aN
The #MsMarvel pilot episode caught me by surprise in the best ways. It’s as close as we’ve come in the MCU to comic book pages coming to life. It’s inventive, bright & a ton of fun. My strong feeling is that teens are going to fall in love with this show. I know my kids will. pic.twitter.com/axrmgPuzzt
