Captain Marvel will see Academy Award victor Brie Larsen take on the role in Marvel's first female fronted movie, and looks set to follow on from the dramatic events at the close of the record-breaking Avengers: Infinity War, which is still in cinemas.
Ms Marvel's alter ego, Kamala Khan, is a Pakistani-American teenager who comes from New Jersey.
Looks like Marvel is finally picking up on the need for more representation in the MCU!
According to Marvel president Kevin Feige, one of these characters is a Pakistan-Muslim female superhero named Kamala Khan but known as Ms Marvel and fans really want Priyanka Chopra to play the part.
He said the character will be introduced after the launch of Captain Marvel.
The latest Marvel movie to hit cinemas was the box office smash hit Avengers: Infinity War.
Captain Marvel is an fantastic character, but her best legacy in the comics might be in the other hero inspired by her: Ms. Marvel, a role filled in the past few years by the wonderful Kamala Khan.
A Marvel film headed by a female, Muslim superhero is now "in the works", according to Avengers Infinity War producer Kevin Feige. Read our review of Ms. Marvel #1. In the human world, she writes fan fiction about her favourite superheroes, hangs out with her best friend at the local convenience store, struggles to stay awake in classes and at the mosque.
This could be soon after the Captain Marvel movie is released on March 6, 2019, Mr Feige hinted.
Although Feige doesn't exactly confirm a Ms Marvel film, his readiness to comment about the teenage Pakistani-American superhero might indicate talks have taken place. She is from Jersey City, and the character went to the same high school I did.
As for who will be cast as Ms Marvel in the MCU?
That's the thinking of fans, who couldn't be more excited...
