Iman Vellani Ms. Marvel
The show finished filming two years ago, at the height of COVID-19, so Vellani is only now learning what it means to be the face of a monster franchise. We’re talking about the press intrusion; the constant online barrage from fans; the complete upturning of her life beyond all recognition. On top of that, to deal with becoming the first Muslim lead in an overwhelmingly white space – a job that has made her an instant role model to millions, and a target for abuse to others.
Yes despite rave reviews from critics, Ms. Marvel predictably upset a vocal minority who weren’t happy about its diverse main character. For Vellani, the hate felt more personal given the similarities between her and Kamala. Like Khan, Vellani is a Marvel obsessive.
Like Khan, she was in the spotlight suddenly. And like Khan, she has had great responsibility thrust upon her. Luckily, and perhaps surprisingly given her tender age, Vellani was ready. “I feel like in the last two years I have aged 20,” she says. “I got cast on my last day of school and was immediately having meetings with and making conversation with adults.
And now most of my best friends are in their thirties. “I feel like I’ve lived a whole life but I’m still only 19. I haven’t experienced life yet. The people that are on the posters on my bedroom wall, that I grew up looking at every morning, I now have their contact info and we’re talking about shared experiences, it’s incredible.”
How Iman Vellani deals with negative reactions
“I know they’re there. It’s something we knew was going to happen to go into this. It happened when comic books came out in 2014. I’m all for constructive criticism as long as people have a legitimate concern or suggestion or something real. Then I care. But all the hatred I’ve seen has no basis, no merit, it’s just purely for the sake of hating – and that’s fine.
You’re not gonna impress everyone. We hit our target audience and we hit an entirely new audience that didn’t know they were gonna fall in love with this character – people who have never seen themselves represented in a positive light before.” “This show is for Marvel fans. If you’re a real Marvel fan, if any of those review bombers consider themselves a Marvel fan, then this show’s for them too. We wanted Ms. Marvel to be a love letter to Marvel fans. So yeah, I don’t care about them!”
