Ms. Marvel may be over, but Kamala Khan’s MCU journey has only just begun. The finale of the recent Disney Plus show ended on a major cliffhanger, with a cameo from Brie Larson, which saw Iman Vellani’s heroine return in next year’s hit sequel. Wonders. But while Kamala definitely has some exciting times ahead of her, it’s unclear if a Ms. Marvel season two is happening so we don’t know if we’ll see some of the other characters from the show in the franchise again.
But one cast member is certainly hoping for the opportunity to reprise his role. Mehwish Hayat, an award-winning Pakistani actress who landed her first US-based project with this Marvel release, played the key character of Aisha, Kamala’s great-grandmother who is truly one of the Clandestines – a super-powered immortal race native to the Noor dimension.
Hayat, who particularly played a major role in the flashback-laden Episode 5, revealed while speaking to PopCulture.com that she would love to return as Aisha in a prequel spin-off based on the Clandestines, which could answer all the questions that remained unanswered at the end of Ms. Marvel. While the actress has no idea if Marvel is entertaining such an idea, she thinks it would have a lot of material to tap into.
As Hayat said:
“First of all, I don’t know about it, obviously if there’s going to be a prequel or something like that, I hope there will be. But there were a lot of questions that were left unanswered Like, ‘What were we doing? Why couldn’t we get home? Why were we stuck in this place where we were as Illegals? How do they know each other? What? did it happen? Exactly, how did they get in touch? Also the fact that when Aisha said, “This bracelet is not going to work, it’s not going to work”, so how did she know it wasn’t going to work? won’t work?”
Another Clandestine-related question that fans are desperate to get answered concerns the potential connections of Aisha’s bracelet to the larger MCU. The temple it’s recovered in sporting the organization symbol of the Ten Rings of Wenwu from Shang Chi while the bracelet itself was removed from a disembodied blue arm, which likely belonged to a Kree.
Hopefully, other origins of Kamala will be explored in Wonders, in theaters next July. In the meantime, attend Marvel’s Comic-Con panel this weekend for your chance to hear some news on Ms. Marvelthe future.
