Mindy Kaling, Riz Ahmed want in on Ms Marvel movie

Kamala Khan is one of Marvel’s first Muslim superheroes

Ms. Marvel or Kamala Khan is a 16-year-old Pakistani American hailing from New Jersey, who tries to overcome the troubles that plague teens in America, and revolves around how life changes for the Muslim gal who is gifted with superhero powers.

Ahmed's suggestion stems from the fact that he is British-Pakistani, while Kaling has an Indian heritage and Nanjiani is Pakistani-American.

Kaling is best known for her work in The Office, The Mindy Project and recently in A Wrinkle in Time.

Nanjiani - who hasn't responded to the tweet - is a Pakistani-American who won acclaim for his semi-autobiographical romantic comedy film The Big Sick.

Kaling had replied that she is "obsessed" with the character, while Nanjani is yet to reply back.

The prospect of a live-action Ms. Marvel was first teased late last week, when Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige hinted that there are definitely plans to make it happen after the release of Captain Marvel.

He had followed up those comments with a possible introduction of Kamala Khan aka Miss Marvel into the MCU.

While it's too early to tell when we could see Ms. Marvel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there are certainly plenty of fans who would like to see it happen sooner than later.

So Riz Ahmed has thrown his name into the ring to write Marvel Studio's Ms. Marvel movie.

Ms Marvel was created by editors Sana Amanat and Stephen Wacker, writer G Willow Wilson and artist Adrian Alphona.

Khan begins to go by Miss Marvel after Carol Danvers her hero, dons the title of Captain Marvel.
