A new poster of Ms. Marvel by designer and illustrator Shehzil Malik celebrates Islamic Culture by introducing the traditional Eid Mubarak Greeting.
Kodoani.com – A brand new poster for Ms. Marvel It is highly anticipated that honors Islamic culture by offering the traditional greeting of Eid Mubarak. Marvel welcomes Iman Velllani to the MCU, as she stars as the main character of the series, Kamala Khan. Kamala is a Pakistani-American teenager who happens to have a special relationship and love for superheroes, especially Captain Marvel.
Before becoming Ms. Marvel, she struggles to fit in both at home and at school, which leads her to escape the world of superheroes, where literally anything is possible. Kamala never once considered herself a part of any community, that is until she discovered she had the same powers as the superheroes she admired so much. During her journey to sharpen her magical powers, she not only finds personal power, but also has greater connections with people outside the world – a club she quickly discovers. I’ve been a VIP member ever since. The rebellious teen turned out to be the first Muslim superhero ever to head their own Marvel comic book series. Now, Kamala’s legacy will be continued as Ms. Marvel and is also the first Muslim character ever to take on the lead role in an MCU project. Vellani is accompanied by actors Yasmeen Fletcher as her friend Nakia, Saagar Shaikh as her brother Amir, Zenobia Shroff as the mother Muneeba Khan, and Mohan Kapur as Yusuf Khan, Kamala’s father. .
May 1 marks the end of the month-long holiday of Ramadan, a fasting ritual that Muslims around the world participate in, limiting their food intake before the sun goes out. Eid al-Fitr, otherwise known as the ‘Holiday of the Rapid Explosion’, is the day on which the fast ceases. On that very day, Muslims often greet the traditional “Eid Mubarak” as a gesture of gratitude, which means “blessing day.” Disney made sure they released new posters of Ms. Marvel just in time to honor Eid al-Fitr.
May this Eid brings strength, love, and light. #EidMubarak

The poster was designed and illustrated by Shehzil Malik, a Pakistani artist whose previous work has been featured on previous posters of the series. Disney released the poster to its Twitter with the caption, “May this Eid bring strength, love and light,” along with the traditional greeting of Eid Mubarak. The latest poster of Ms Marvel draws special attention to the crescent moon and the stars floating in the hands of Kamala – the famous symbol of the Islamic religion. Kamala’s right hand is also adorned with traditional Henna, a temporary body art form very popular among the South Asian community.
Kamala’s Islamic religion and Middle Eastern culture were emphasized in the Ms. Marvel. It’s clear from this new poster that her Pakistani roots will be important and central to her overall story in Ms. Marvel as for her in the comics. Kamala will still be seen trying to navigate two vastly different worlds, one of which is her overall desire to stay connected with her cultural traditions, while at the same time satisfying her desires. of her parents. The other is someone she longs to be liberated and independent of from her own foundation, so that she can sometimes fit in when she wants or needs to. Although not many plot details have been announced so far, Ms. Marvel will provide an insight into the life and struggles of a Muslim American teenager.
Ms. Marvel will premiere on Disney Plus on June 8, 2022.
