Charles Sykes Richard Shotwell Invision AP

Actor Riz Ahmed has offered to write the screenplay for Miss Marvel, the comic featuring Muslim teenage superhero Kamala Khan. He also tagged Hollywood actors Mindy Kaling and Kumail Nanjiani who are both from South Asian backgrounds and have made a name for themselves in comedy and serious acting. We have no idea yet when or how Kamala Khan will arrive on the big screen, but this little Twitter party serves as yet another reminder of how important she is to so many people, and how big the impact of her character has already been.

"Ms. Marvel.is definitely sort of in the works", Feige had said.

"We are now making "Captain marvel" with brie Larson, but in the comics there is also Ms. marvel, the Muslim character, and we have big plans for her". Comic book creator Sana Amanat is the brains behind the character, who is the director and editor at Marvel Comics.

Kamala Khan AKA Ms. Marvel is a Pakistani-American teenager living in New Jersey who finds she has exceptional shape shifting abilities and decides to become a super heroine following in the footsteps of her idol, Carol Danvers who is Captain Marvel.

Riz asked the comic studio when they'd like him, Mindy and Kumail to get started on the screenplay for a film for Ms. Marvel.

We will remind, filmmakers are more willing to make a female team of Marvel and it seems even more likely.

Ahmed's suggestion stems from the fact that he is British-Pakistani, while Kaling has an Indian heritage and Nanjiani is Pakistani-American.
