So Riz Ahmed has thrown his name into the ring to write Marvel Studio's Ms. Marvel movie. It's a thrilling time for our Brown actors in Hollywood, in particular, Riz Ahmed, Kumail Nanjiani and Mindy Kaling who are shimmering overseas, making us desis incredibly proud.

However, fans and followers did not respond well to this suggestion by Ahmed and had their reservations.

"Ms. Marvel.is definitely sort of in the works", Feige had said. But it's safe to say that these tweets have earned a pretty passionate response.

Given their respective backgrounds (Ahmed is British-Pakistani, Kaling has Indian heritage and Nanjiani is Pakistani-American), it's obvious Ahmed wants to have a diverse creative team who can do justice to Kamala's story.

In the Marvel comics, Ms Marvel is inspired by Captain Marvel to become a hero.

In a BBC interview, Marvel president Kevin Feige revealed that after 2019's Captain Marvel, the studio will be planning a Ms Marvel film.

"We have plans for that once we've introduced Captain Marvel to the world", he added. Maybe Marvel should check its Twitter mentions for help in getting that started.
