Ms Marvel FIRST Reactions: Critics Call It Playful, Charming, and Extremely Relatable, Compare The Show To Spider-Man Films
Marvel Cinematic Universe has a surprise for all its fans and it is all set to release Ms Marvel which will begin streaming next month. 

Amid all the excitement, a few critics internationally were given an early preview of the six-part series and their first reactions are out. Critics were given access to either the first episode or the first two and many have given a brief review of the same, reported Hindustan Times. 

As per the reviews, the series is joyful and pleasant, and there is plenty of praise for lead actor Iman Vellani as well.


According to the comics, Ms Marvel is based on Kamala Khan (Iman), Marvel’s first Muslim superhero, who is a fan of the Avengers and later struggles with her own life as a superhero after she discovers she has superpowers too.

Farhan Akhtar and Fawad Khan are both playing small roles in the show but haven’t been seen in the show’s teaser or trailer so far.

On Wednesday, several critics set the internet ablaze with their reviews and fans are excited for the release of the series.  


Many called it an important step in representation. Preeti Chhibber of Desi Geek Girls wrote on Twitter, “I love this show. It is everything I could have wanted. I say this a lot about our girl Kamala Khan, but I've literally never felt so seen. But like me... specifically.”

A few compared the visuals of the show with Spider-Man films. The Direct’s Jack McBryan tweeted, “Jersey City feels alive in a way that no other location in the MCU has been. Has life similar to the NYC in Raimi's Spider-Man movies.” Maggie Boccella of Collider tweeted, “#MsMarvel is coming of age joy in a spandex suit. The music bangs, Iman Vellani is the kind of precious star that makes me excited for the future of the MCU, and the visuals are stolen straight from a comic book.”


Journalist Julia Delbel tweeted, “#MsMarvel is so much fun! A lot of it is slice-of-life based (nice to get the perspective of how regular people in the MCU view the superheroics going on around them). The question of how so many people know what happened in the Endgame final battle is also answered.”

Ms Marvel cast also includes Aramis Knight, Matt Lintz, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Naki, Azhar Usman, Travina Springer, and Nimra Bucha. The series will stream on Disney+ globally and on Disney+ Hotstar in India, starting June 8.
