- Iman Vellani’s recent cosplay as Jubilee may suggest a possible association between her Ms. Marvel character and the X-Men in the MCU.
- The MCU has introduced numerous legacy characters, including Ms. Marvel, setting the stage for a new era of superheroes.
- The final episode of Ms. Marvel and Vellani’s involvement in shaping the character’s narrative suggest a potential link between Kamala Khan and the X-Men in the MCU, making her cosplay as Jubilee more significant.
Iman Vellani, well-known for her part as Ms. Marvel in the MCU, astonished her admirers with an unexpected transformation. The actress was lately observed in a cosplay of X-Men’s Jubilee, a divergence from her usual portrayal of Kamala Khan, alias Ms. Marvel. Vellani embodying Jubilee, another Marvel superhero, may suggest a possible association between her Ms. Marvel character and the X-Men in the MCU.
Following the end of the Infinity Saga with Avengers: Endgame in 2019, the MCU has introduced numerous legacy characters, setting the stage for a new era of superheroes. Among these are Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop, Tatiana Maslany’s She-Hulk, and Vellani’s Ms. Marvel. After spearheading her own Disney+ series, Ms. Marvel, Iman Vellani is set to join the ensemble of The Marvels this November.
The playful costume switch occurred at FAN EXPO Canada, where a photo of Vellani and Never Have I Ever star, Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, was shared on Instagram Stories by Ramakrishnan (via Pop Crave). Captured in the image, Ramakrishnan is donned in Donatello’s costume from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, while Vellani is clad in the bright ensemble of X-Men’s Jubilee. This switch in characters led to speculation on whether Vellani might soon be portraying an X-Men member in the MCU.
The final episode of Ms. Marvel added fuel to the speculation fire when Matt Lintz’s character, Bruno, disclosed to Kamala that he had discovered a mutation in her genes. This unveiling, highlighted by the signature tune of the renowned X-Men: The Animated Series, insinuated a potential role for Ms. Marvel in the narrative of X-Men in the MCU.
The MCU’s Subtle Hints: Kamala Khan, X-Men, and a New Chapter for Ms. Marvel
In a recent comic series, Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, faced a shocking twist. The character was initially written off, only to make a grand comeback as a mutant, wearing a reimagined version of Ms. Marvel’s traditional costume. This change in the character’s narrative aligned with the original intentions of her comic book creators, who initially envisioned Kamala as a mutant.
The recent development indicate that Vellani may play an important role in MCU’s revival of X-Men’s storyline. The new comic series, Ms. Marvel: The New Mutant, co-written by Iman Vellani, marks the return of the character as a mutant. This development, along with Vellani’s involvement in shaping the character’s X-Men narrative and the MCU’s subtle hints, suggests that Kamala Khan’s and the X-Men’s fates are intricately linked in the MCU, making her Jubilee cosplay potentially more than just a fleeting moment.
The boundary between fiction and reality is often blurred, and Iman Vellani’s playful cosplay as Jubilee could be a significant indicator of what lies ahead for her character, Ms. Marvel, in the MCU. While it remains uncertain if Kamala Khan will become an official member of the X-Men, current indications are optimistic.
