Please make this a reality, Kevin Feige!
In the excitement of Captain Marvel currently filming and heading for the big screen, fans have been wondering if another Marvel will be heading for a feature film as well. In the comics, when Carol Danvers became Captain Marvel, Kamala Khan took over the role of Ms. Marvel. Kamala is a Pakistani-American and Muslim, crime-fighting teenager that fans fell in love with when she came on the scene. And Feige knows what fans want.
In a conversation with Business Insider, Feige confirmed that a Ms. Marvel movie is being eyed up to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe:
We’re doing Captain Marvel right now, Captain Marvel is shooting right now with Brie Larson. Ms. Marvel, which is another character in the comic books — the Muslim hero who is inspired by Captain Marvel — is definitely sort of in the works. We have plans for that once we introduce Captain Marvel to the world.
Riz Ahmed, who I’m assuming has a Google alert for Ms. Marvel, saw this news and instantly tweeted his golden idea.

Mindy Kaling didn’t waste any time on describing her love for Kamala Khan!
Riz! I am obsessed with this comic book, I’ve read them all. I love Kamala Khan. https://t.co/f3PevhfUzv

It’s obviously going to be a while before we see a Ms. Marvel movie, but I truly hope it happens and that Kaling and Ahmed will be involved. And for a team of people with Pakistani heritage to be involved with the movie.
