en Bollywood News Ms. Marvel Episode 1: From AR Rahman to Riz Ahmed, 6 songs from the South Asian artists featured in the premiere

Ms. Marvel has arrived. Marvel Cinematic Universe's first teen Muslim-American superhero Kamala Khan, played by Iman Vellani, looks up to the superheroes especially Captain Marvel (Brie Larson). She is your regular 16-year-old high school girl living in the busy city of Jersey who has overprotective Pakistani parents Muneeba (Zenobia Shroff), a fun Abu/dad Yusuf (Mohan Kapur), and a brother Aamir (Saagar Shaikh), best friends Bruno (Matt Lintz) and Nakia (Yasmeen Fletcher), who idolises superheroes and has regular teen issues. Amid this, she finds herself unique - or one could say there's something cosmic about her. As the premiere episode arrived on Wednesday on Disney+ Hotstar, the soundtrack caught everyone's attention.

Apart from them, the episode also featured 'Blinding Lights' by The Weeknd, 'I Don't Want To Talk' By Wallows, 'Reflection' from Mulan by Matthew Wilder and Jerry Goldsmith, 'Oh!' by The Linda Lindas, 'Carmen Suite 1: Habanera' by Georges Bizet; 'Sinkies' by Hot Sugar, 'My Type' by Saint Motel, 'Star Spangled Man' by The Star Spangled Singers, and 'Proudly Presents' by Samuel Pegg.

Created by Bisha K. Ali, the Disney+ miniseries will introduce us to Kamala Khan, a 16-year-old Muslim Pakistani-American from Jersey City fascinated by the Avengers, who looks up to Captain Marvel in particular, as she becomes imbued with shape-shifting powers.

As created by G. Willow Wilson, Sana Amanat, Stephen Wacker, and Adrian Alphona in the comics, Kamala has a relatively unique set of superpowers. While Kamala Khan's powers in the comics consist of stretching, shrinking and growing, the trailer shows the new hero shooting purple cosmic energy beams, forming shields, manifesting a giant fist in a nod to her comic book counterpart and the kind of midair stepping stones previously seen in Doctor Strange films.

The actor-musician will be a part of the series which introduces Iman Vellani and also includes names like Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Matt Lintz, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Nakli, Azhar Usman, Fawad Khan, Farhan Akhtar, Travina Springer and Nimra Bucha.
