Pakistan's heartthrob Fawad Khan will be reportedly making an appearance in Marvel Cinematic Universe's upcoming series "Ms. Marvel", along with Nimra Bucha, Samina Ahmed, and India's Farhan Akhtar.
Ms. Marvel is a story of a Pakistan-American Kamala Khan who posses an Inhuman ability to alter shape and size. And just like any superhero, aims to use that power to make the world a better place. Presumably, Fawad Khan, while playing the character of Hasan in the series, will help the first Muslim heroine along the way as she struggles as a teenager with life, relationships, superpowers, and the responsibility that comes with it.
The news of Khan joining Marvel's newest series for Diseny+ was first shared by BBC's entertainment journalist Haroon Rashid. Taking to Twitter, he expressed his joy calling it an amazing piece of news:
"Wow! Fawad Khan [is] set to appear in Ms Marvel - the Disney+ series about Marvel’s first titular Muslim character. He's listed on the show's official IMDB page. Farhan Akhtar, Nimra Bucha, and Samina Ahmad are reportedly part of the cast too. Marvel yet to comment. Amazing if true!"
While the actor himself or the franchise has yet to comment on his inclusion to the team, he is already being featured as a cast member on the IMBD page of Ms Marvel. He will be appearing in one episode out of a total of six episodes.
The series has been directed by four directors including two-time Oscar winner, Pakistan's very own Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, Meera Monon, Billal Fallah, and Adil El Arabi. And will be released towards the end of 2021.
