Marvel Studios is all set to introduce 'Ms Marvel' in the MCU franchise with Iman Vellani playing the title character. The official synosis for 'Ms Marvel' states, "A great student, an avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, she has a special affinity for superheroes, particularly Captain Marvel. But Kamala struggles to fit in at home and at school—that is, until she gets super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life is easier with super powers, right? " 'Ms Marvel', being centered around a teenager's perspective, will be perfect for moving forward in the franchise with new narratives. 

The trailer for 'Ms Marvel' had officially confirmed that Kamala's powers would be changed drastically in the MCU version. Unlike the comics where Kamala is a shapeshifter, in the TV series she will have ability to harness cosmic energy and create constructs from a magical bangle. In an interview with Empire, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige explained why Kamala Khan's powers changed in the MCU, "We adapt the comics; it's not an exact translation." He further revealed that "[Kamala] came about in a very specific time within the comic-book continuity. She is now coming into a very specific time within the MCU continuity. And those two things didn't match." Naturally this statement has made fans curious as to where 'Ms. Marvel' lands in the existing MCU franchise ? Scroll down to find out the answer.

Will there be a 'Moon Knight' Season 2? Here's everything you need to know

'Ms Marvel' co-creator and producer on the Disney+ series Sana Amanat has revealed in an interview with The Direct, as to where exactly 'Ms Marvel' takes place in the timeline of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She says that they haven't decided when exactly 'Ms Marvel' takes place, but she believes it's around one to two years after Thanos was defeated in 'Avengers: Endgame'. Sana said, "I cannot tell you off the top of my head because I would butcher it. I feel like it's one to two years [after Endgame], something like that, but I don't actually remember [specifically]. But we do have that in our timeline." 'Avengers: Endgame', released in 2019, took place in the MCU's 2023, which means Ms. Marvel would take place in either 2024 or 2025.

'Ms Marvel' is expected to play a big part in MCU franchise's new arc and era. Kamala Khan is also confirmed to make her first big-screen appearance in 'The Marvels' proving itself as a critical installment in setting up the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Directed by Nia DaCosta, Iman Vellani will appear alongside Brie Larson's Captain Marvel and Teyonnah Parris' Monica Rambeau. It wouldn't be a surprise if she appears in other MCU projects due to the franchise's interconnected narratives and then possibly star in 'Ms Marvel' Season 2. As a new character in the MCU, it's expected that she will play a major role going forward.

Other Phase 4 projects in the MCU timeline

While it is now confirmed 'Ms Marvel' is likely set a few years after the events of Endgame, where other Disney+ series, like 'Moon Knight', fit onto the timeline is much less clear. When asked where 'Moon Knight' takes place in the MCU, head writer Jeremy Slater said he had "no idea." "We didn’t know when our show would debut in relation to their other shows and films, so the timeline was intentionally left vague," he said. 'Moon Knight' has also been the only Disney+ original from Marvel to not have any direct references associated with the MCU. For other shows like 'Hawkeye', director Rhys Thomas confirmed that the series takes place around the same time as 'Ms Marvel', in 2024. "For a period of time, we were going to set it two years out - which would make it 2025 - hence me messing with your minds about the timeline," Thomas said. "But it's [one] year out [from Endgame]." Out of all MCU Phase 4 projects, only 'Black Widow' is set before 'Avengers: Endgame'. 

'Ms Marvel' will stream as a weekly series on Disney+, premiering on June 8, 2022.
