The Advertisement For The Ms. Marvel Show Brilliantly Echoes Original Comics
With the main heroine overseeing her birthplace of Jersey City, a new Ms. Marvel show billboard effectively evokes the classic Marvel comics
Matt Lintz, Yasmeen Fletcher, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Laurel Marsden, Adaku Ononogbo, Laith Nakli, Travina Springer, and Aramis Knight join Vellani in the cast of Ms. Marvel. The directorial team is led by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah of Bad Boys for Life, with Bisha K. Ali acting as the show's main writer. Ms. Marvel is now gearing up to expose the world to Kamala Khan after three years in the works, and Marvel is keeping anticipation high in a creative way.
One Reddit user uploaded a snapshot of an unique Ms. Marvel billboard with just over a week till the show's launch. The billboard, which is located on the New Jersey Turnpike, skillfully reflects the character's original comics origins by including a silhouette of Ms. Marvel atop of the poster. Take a look at this adorable billboard:
The Ms. Marvel billboard isn't the first time Marvel has attempted to use the character's comic book heritage to raise interest for the program. Kamala posed on a streetlight with her scarf billowing in the air in an early poster for the series, brilliantly mirroring 2014's Ms. Marvel Vol. 3 No. 5, whose cover had a near-identical image. Ms. Marvel images and posters released in the run-up to the show's premiere have also done a good job of showing off Kamala's comic-accurate suit from the MCU title.
Notwithstanding, comic book fans have expressed reservations about Kamala's new powers in Ms. Marvel, which was necessary given her comic book beginnings, which dealt with Inhuman DNA, a part of the MCU that has mostly been abandoned after the demise of the Inhumans. Initial comments to Ms. Marvel have mostly praised the MCU series for its cheery and pleasant attitude, as well as Vellani's starring role as the title heroine. Ms. Marvel will air on Disney+ on June 8, so the wait is almost over.
