The Marvels director Nia DaCosta has revealed that Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel will be the same age in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film as she was in her debut Disney+ series.

During an interview with Total Film (via The Direct), DaCosta mentioned that Kamala will be 16 years old in The Marvels, which is the same age the fan-favorite character was in Ms. Marvel. However, given the fact that Ms. Marvel's mid-credits scene set up the character's role in the forthcoming The Marvels, it makes sense that Kamala would still be the same age. In contrast, Iman Vellani was 19 years old when she filmed The Marvels and is now 21.

The Marvels Brings Together Three Female Superheroes

The Marvels focuses on Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) and Kamala Khan (Vellani), as well as Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), continuing their respective storylines from Captain Marvel, WandaVision, Ms. Marvel and Secret Invasion. In the upcoming MCU entry, "Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel has reclaimed her identity from the tyrannical Kree and taken revenge on the Supreme Intelligence. But unintended consequences see Carol shouldering the burden of a destabilized universe."

The synopsis continues, "When her duties send her to an anomalous wormhole linked to a Kree revolutionary, her powers become entangled with that of Jersey City super-fan, Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel, and Carol's estranged niece, now S.A.B.E.R. astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau. Together, this unlikely trio must team-up and learn to work in concert to save the universe as The Marvels."

Is Ms. Marvel Season 2 in the Works?

The Marvels marks Vellani's second appearance in the MCU as Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel. While Marvel Studios has not revealed when the character will appear again, some fans remain hopeful that it will be in a second season of Ms. Marvel, whose first season aired on Disney+ across June and July 2022. During San Diego Comic-Con 2023, the show's producer Sana Amanat encouraged fans to continue campaigning for another season, stating that it is "great to see more demand." At this time, the only Marvel Disney+ series to receive second seasons have been Loki, starring Tom Hiddleston, and the animated What If...?, which explores alternate realities within the MCU's Multiverse.

In addition to Larson, Parris, Vellani and Jackson, returning MCU cast members in The Marvels include Saagar Shaikh, Zenobia Shroff and Mohan Kapur -- reprising their respective roles from Ms. Marvel as Kamala's older brother Aamir, mother Muneeba and father Yusuf -- as well as Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau and Randall Park as Jimmy Woo. Actors set to make their MCU debut in the upcoming sequel are Daniel Ings, Colin Stoneley, Shamier Anderson, Abraham Popoola, Ffion Jolly, Caroline Simonnet, Jessica Zhou and Gary Lewis, with Zawe Ashton playing the film's big bad, Dar-Benn.

The Marvels opens in theaters on Nov. 10.
