Rumor has it that Marvel Studio is planning to introduce their first-ever Muslim superhero, or to be more specific “superheroine”, Ms. Marvel a.k.a. Kamala Khan!
Ms. Marvel made her debut in the comics back in 2013 and she is the first and only Muslim representation in this super cool Marvel Universe. More excitingly, Kamala Khan belongs to a Pakistani immigrant family, who lives in New Jersey, and she acquires the same superpowers as the former Ms. Marvel, Carol Danvers, now known as Captain Marvel!
OMG OMG this is HUGE! Kevin Feigie just said that a Ms. Marvel movie is in the works! MS. MARVEL IS A MUSLIM FEMALE SUPERHERO! THIS IS SUCH A BIG DEAL AND IT MAKES ME SO HAPPY! Ms. Marvel/Kamala Khan is a teenage Pakistani American from New Jersey with shapeshifting abilities and assumes the mantle of Ms. Marvel, inspired by her hero Captain Marvel. I know this is way down the line, most probably a phase 5 film for the MCU but it just makes me so happy! We as Muslims are being represented as heroes for once! :’) As Kevin said, she would be introduced sometime after the Captain Marvel movie, which is set to be released next March.
Now the big question is, which Pakistani actress could play Ms. Marvel a.k.a. Kamala Khan if given the opportunity?
We have made a list of 10 Pakistani actresses, who have the potential to play this role just fine!
Check it out!
- Mehwish Hayat
The leading lady of the highest grossing movie of 2017, Punjab Nahi Jaungi, Mehwish could be the perfect choice to play this role, assuming her extraordinary talent and confident personality. She commands a huge fan following as well and if given the chance could Marvel as Ms Marvel!
- Saba Qamar
The versatility of Saba Qamar to mold into any character makes her one of the potential candidates to play the role of Ms. Marvel. Moreover, she has already earned reputation on the international platform after her debut movie in Bollywood, Hindi Medium.
- Kubra Khan
The model turned actress has the attitude to challenge different roles and looking at her personality, upbringing in England and talent that has no boundaries, Kubra would definitely make a good superheroine!
- Humaima Malick
The bold and the very beautiful, Humaima Malick, seems like another perfect candidate to play this role. From Bol to her Bollywood movie, Raja Natwarlal, Humaima has never failed to grace our screens with her talent, sexy looks and above all, confident personality!
- Syra Shahroze
Although Syra is mostly seen as a shy, innocent girl in our dramas, interestingly, she has already done one superhero movie “Project Ghazi”, which gives her an edge over other candidates. The film is still pending release but what we saw in it, makes us believe she can do it!
- Mawra Hocane
With several successful dramas and also a Bollywood movie, Sanam Teri Kasam, this young and confident lady has the talent and can make a good female superhero!
- Hareem Farooq

The Parchi actress doesn’t only have a gorgeous face but she also possesses a confident and bold personality and we would definitely love to see her play a role like this!
- Iman Ali
It would be awesome to see our supermodel play the role of a superhero and judging by her talent, she would make a gorgeous yet savage superheroine!
- Ayeza Khan
Bellagio's favourite @ayezakhan.ak visited us for sadaf's custom made colour (signature Balayage + Full head colour ) & crystal clear facial. she got the most beautiful sunkissed warm colour blend of blonde & brunette. We can't stop obessing over her new look!!!! #ayezakhan #myqueen #mylove @ayezakhan.ak @ayezakhan.ak @ayezakhan.ak
We have all seen Ayeza playing the mainstream roles of just another Pakistani girl in dramas, but if given the chance, our girl would make an amazing superheroine!
- Armeena Khan
I just wanted to take a moment and say "thank you" to everyone for all of the birthday wishes. It means a lot to me that you all took time from your busy lives to wish me a happy birthday. Love you @armeenakhanofficial ❤ I feel very blessed to have each and every one of you. I'm sorry if I missed someone's wish. I hope you guys don’t mind.

Stay blessed.❤ #ArmeenaKhan Makeup: moonie.k.makeupartist
Playing the role of an artificial intelligence robot in a British movie, The Achilles Protocol, Armeena has the advantage of working in a sci-fi international film. She might not be as tall as the other candidates, but given the chance, she has all the power to take the good Ms. Marvel to new heights!
