Hollywood actor Mindy Kaling says she has met with the Marvel team to talk about Pakistani-American teen superhero Miss Marvel.
In an interview with MTV News the actor said,” I think the people I’ve spoken to at Marvel about it are so excited about the character and I think that they’re trying to figure out what to do with it, and I told them I would help in any way because I truly love her.”
“They really seemed interested, and I think they will probably do something. Now that there’s like this streaming platform with them, it might be something like that, but I think they understand how much excitement there is,” Kaling added.
She further said if an adaptation was made, she thinks “an unknown” actor would be the best choice to play teenage Kamala Khan.
However, the actor later took to Twitter to clarify her involvement with any possible Miss Marvel projects.
“Hi everyone, I love Ms. Marvel (aka Kamala Khan) and the geniuses behind her, but I have no information about any TV or film adaptation! Wish I did though, when that hits the screen it’s gonna be huge,” the Indian-American actor tweeted.
Last year, British-Pakistani actor Riz Ahmed tagged Kaling and Pakistani-American actor and comedian Kumail Nanjiani in a tweet to write the Miss Marvel screenplay.
“Riz! I am obsessed with this comic book, I’ve read them all. I love Kamala Khan,” Kaling had responded.
Miss Marvel created by Sana Amanat and Stephen Wacker, writer G Willow Wilson and artist Adrian Alphona, Miss Marvel is about a Pakistani-American teen superhero Kamala Khan, a 16-year-old teenager who lives with her conservative Pakistani parents and brother in New Jersey.
