Ms. Marvel writer, Bisha K. Ali, sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to talk about the return of Agent Cleary from Spider-Man: No Way Home, how Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige guided the team while creating the show and how it will set up The Marvels. How ‘Ms. Marvel’ Would Connect With ‘The Marvels’
“At the point we started up the Ms. Marvel writers’ room, we already knew going in that The Marvels was going to happen and that Ms. Marvel was going to be part of it. What I didn’t know — and still don’t — is what’s going to happen in that movie, but I have some guesses … So I was very aware that we would get a teenage girl in Jersey City, without powers, and we would have to get her ready for whatever is going to happen in that movie. So I was very aware of that connectivity, and by the time they got moving in earnest on that feature, most of our scripts had been written. So, they had read all of our scripts, and they knew what was going to happen to her. They had all of that in mind as they were going into their movie, but I would love to know what happens in their story.” Bisha K. Ali
The Return Of Agent Cleary
“I don’t think that we did get dailies for Agent Cleary. It’s a Kevin thing. Kevin knows all that, man. He introduced the idea of Agent Cleary being a part of our show, and that’s the thing about working with Marvel. Kevin and the execs know all the pieces that we might not even know, so they’ll come in and be like, “OK, you have this, so let’s manifest it through this piece, interconnecting it with something else.” And that’s the thrill of being a part of the MCU. So that’s definitely a Kevin fix.” Bisha K. Ali
Agent Cleary No Boundaries For Exploration!
“It wasn’t like, ‘Here are the borders of what you can do.’ It was more like, ‘OK, maybe move in this direction a little bit more.’ In terms of our parameters, it was to keep this ground level, and luckily, I was in line with that from the start. Kamala Khan is the people’s hero of this generation. She represents so many of the current fans who’ve grown up with a decade of Marvel cinematic storytelling. So that element was really important, and the thing I always wanted to do from my pitch onwards was to keep this about her character, through and through. The visual storytelling, the way [the writers] did the storytelling, the powers, and the relationships are all about Kamala’s internal life, psychology, and journey. So that was every creative’s guiding light from day one, and we were all in agreement from the get-go,” Bisha K. Ali How To Watch Ms. Marvel’?
