Fans have been eagerly awaiting any news as to when the highly anticipated Disney+ series “Ms. Marvel” might arrive, and a new rumor making the rounds on Twitter suggests it might air in early 2022.
While that rumor certainly doesn’t amount to an official release date, it should give hope to anyone who has been wondering when “Ms. Marvel” and its teenage heroine Kamala Khan, played by Iman Vellani, will finally make it to the screen. The series is an essential part of the MCU’s plan to establish the difference between Ms. Marvel and Captain Marvel ahead of the November 2022 theatrical release of “The Marvels.”
That distinction is important because that film will feature the Carol Danvers version of Captain Marvel, played by Brie Larson, as well as Vellani’s Ms. Marvel, and the return of the now-superpowered Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) of “WandaVision” fame — who originally had the codename of Captain Marvel in the comics, as well (though she’s also gone by Spectrum, Photon, and Pulsar).
While the “Ms. Marvel” comic books have a passionate following, information about the Disney+ series (since it was delayed, following other COVID-19 delays) has been thin. Fans got their best look yet at the MCU’s “Ms. Marvel” this summer when leaked promo art demonstrated her costume design and possibly hinted at her abilities, but there have been few details beyond that.
Here is what fans need to know about the new rumors surrounding the release date of “Ms. Marvel.”
A Twitter rumor says Ms. Marvel will be released in February 2022
The new possible release date comes from the Twitter account of Amit Chaudhari, a graphics designer who regularly posts insider information about big-name movies and TV productions such as “Ms. Marvel.”
In his Twitter post, Chaudhari wrote, “Hearing #MsMarvel show could be looking for a February 2022 release… let’s see if there’s an official announcement anytime soon.” While this potential release date remains unverified, it does line up with some of the information that fans already had regarding the arrival window of the show.
When Ms. Marvel fans received the sad news that the series likely wouldn’t premiere in 2021 as initially planned, some speculated that the show might shift to early 2022 as a follow-up to the Disney+ series “Hawkeye,” which begins its six-episode run in November.
On Twitter, since fans don’t have any further details from an official source, the debate over the accuracy of the February 2022 rumor has opened up. Some followers, such as @supermangeek101, tried to lock down an exact day in February that the show might be released.
While others, like @CollinBurko1, were confident that the show would instead premiere in January. Whatever the release date ends up being, it certainly feels like it’s just around the corner, so hopefully, fans get the answer they’re waiting for sooner rather than later.
