Ms. Marvel: Farhan Akhtar’s fate revealed as he makes his first appearance in MCU to help Kamala Khan

SPOILER ALERT! Following her vision of a train in Ms. Marvel episode 3, Kamala (Iman Vellani) and her mother, Muneeba (Zenobia Shroff), travel to Pakistan to understand what her visions meant and the mystery behind the bangle. They land in Karachi, find more about her heritage and her great-grandmother Aisha, and her Djinn heritage. She also comes face-to-face with the Red Dagger (Aramis Knight) who plays Kareem. He takes her to a secret hideout for the Red Daggers, a group of warriors who tend to stick to the shadows. There, Kamala meets Waleed (Farhan Akhtar), the leader of the Red Daggers, who offers up an ominous message, “When you’re ready, we have much to discuss.”

The episode is packed with action as Waleed explains Kamala how the world connects to the realm of Noor and her own destiny as a Djinn. Waleed says, “The Clandestines and Aisha are from another realm. There are many dimensions around us that we cannot see, and this is just one of them — and this is Aisha's home. It’s connected to our world, but hidden. Behind a veil of Noor that separates our world from them…” There is an intense showdown against the ClanDestine in the episode where you see Waleed sacrificing himself to protect Kamala and her new friends.

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, Travina Springer and Nimra Bucha.

On home turf, Farhan Akhtar is helming Jee Le Zaraa starring Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt.
