Popular Pakistani actor Fawad Khan is reportedly set to appear in Disney+ series "Ms Marvel."
BBC entertainment journalist, Haroon Rashid took to Twitter to announce the big news, reports Something Haute.
Haroon Rashid wrote, "Wow! Fawad Khan 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 Marvel is yet to comment, the show's IMDB page does show Fawad listed in the cast. It says he will be named Hasan in the web series.
According to reports, they have all been travelling to Thailand, in complete secrecy, so NDAs (Non-Disclosure Agreements) are probably very strict.
Two-time Oscar-winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy is one of the four directors behind the next and much-anticipated series in the Marvel franchise along with Meera Menon, Adil El Arbi, and Bilall Fallah. Several Pakistani actors are also stated to be part of the project.
Ms Marvel focuses on Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), a Pakistani-American teen based in New Jersey. The superhero first appeared in 2014 as Marvel Comics' first Muslim character to star in her own comic series, and she will become Marvel Studios' first onscreen Muslim hero.
The series is set to release on Disney+ in late 2021.
