Earlier this year it was reported that Bad Boys For Life directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah met with Marvel Studios to discuss potential projects for them to take on. Well, according to The Direct, the filmmaking duo will reportedly direct at least one episode of the Ms. Marvel Disney+ series.
The Ms. Marvel series is being developed by British writer Bisha K. Ali, who will write and act as showrunner on the series. Ali is a comedian who also worked as a writer on Hulu’s remake of Four Weddings and a Funeral.
The series will be inspired by and focus on the most recent incarnation of the character, a teenager named Kamela Khan. Ms. Marvel is a shape-shifting Muslim Pakistani-American teenager from New Jersey, who becomes the newest holder of the Ms. Marvel identity. She is the youngest of two children from a traditional Pakistani family. Her powers have been described as polymorphous, meaning she has the ability to stretch and change her shape.
Despite her traditional roots, Kamala was the typical American teenager. Wanting to be herself, but still make her family proud. For several years, Kamala was a fan of superheroes especially the Avengers and, more importantly, Carol Danvers. So much, in fact, that she started writing online fan-fiction about the Avengers and Captain Marvel. Even going as far as joining the Carol Danvers Corps online.
When previously talking about their meeting with Marvel, the filmmakers said:
“There was nothing yet concrete. If we find something that we really love and that fits to our personality then, yeah, for sure, we go for it. It would be an honor to work with them. We are exploring at this point,” El Arbi said. “We are looking for what is the right character, right storyline to go. If they have something, if we have something, I hope that very soon we find something and we can work with Marvel or DC, as well.”
The news of Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah being hired to direct Ms. Marvel has not been confirmed, but if it’s true and Marvel likes the work they do on the series, maybe they will end up doing more for them in the future.
