Laurel Marsden Joins the Cast of “Ms. Marvel”
“Ms. Marvel” is yet another exciting series coming to Disney+ from the Marvel Universe. The show is set to debut sometime in late 2021 and its creation included a long search for the actress who will play the title character. Iman Villani has been cast as the title character, but now we know who will play her friend/rival.
Ms. Marvel is a Pakistani-American teenage girl who lives in New Jersey. Her name is Kamala Khan and she is the first onscreen Muslim hero in Marvel films. The character is played by newcomer actress, Iman Vellani.
Ms. Marvel, a newer character to Marvel comics has grabbed the world's imagination and we are excited to announce Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan.

Laurel Marsden (Survive) has been cast as Zoe Zimmer, a friend/rival to Kamala Khan. Zoe is the popular girl in school. She dates the star athlete and very much has that “mean girl” attitude at first. She becomes the first person “Ms Marvel” saves and eventually takes on the mantle of “Discord”.
Ms. Marvel is inspired by Captain Marvel. Much about the details of the show itself are unknown, but we do know that the continuation of a strong female hero will be present in the series. The creator, Bisha K. Ali, has experience in stand-up comedy and television writing.
Joining Vellani in Ms. Marvel, the cast also includes Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Matt Lintz, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Naki, Azher Usman, Travina Springer, and Nimra Bucha.
The series is currently filming in Atlanta and is set to hit Disney+ later this year.
