Disney+ & Marvel Tap Four Different Directors For The 'Ms. Marvel' Series


Outsiders - September 19, 2020
Disney+ and Marvel have tapped Adil El Arbi, Bilall Fallah, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoym and Meera Menon to be part of the directing team for the Ms. Marvel series.

Ms. Marvel hails from head writer Bisha K. Ali and centers on Kamala Khan, a Pakistani American teen. The New Jersey-based hero broke ground in 2014 as Marvel's first Muslim character to star in her own title, and she will become Marvel Studios' first onscreen Muslim hero.

Directors El Arbi and Fallah are credited for bringing the Bad Boys franchise back with a third release in January 2020. The Will Smith and Martin Lawrence starrer earned $425.6 million globally. The directors are attached to Netflix's Beverly Hills Cop 4, to star Eddie Murphy, as well as the Muslim family drama Rebel.

Obaid-Chinoy is a 2015 Academy award winner for the documentary, A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness, exploring the aftermath of an attempted honor killing in Pakistan, and 2012's Saving Face, which looked at acid attacks on women in Pakistan and made her the first Pakistan-born filmmaker to win an Academy Award. She has also won Emmys for both projects and has collected a total of six in her career, winning in 2014 for Pakistan's Taliban Generation and in 2010 for work on PBS' Frontline/World.

Menon is credited with television series such as You, For All Mankind, The Walking Dead, The Punisher, Titans, Dirty John and Outlander.

Most shows utilize a suite of directors. Very few are directed by the same person episode after episode.

Glad I'm not the only one who pays attention.

wow...that many directors..seems Disney does not want this to end up like the Mulan live action? I hope it really captures how Ms Marvel got the comic readers cheered on her.

Seems they're going the same route as The Mandalorian with different directors for different episodes.

I just hope they avoid the Superhero clichés that the recent comic run is starting to dredge up

Sure cool, I forgot about this Ms. Marvel show actually, I don't care who directs as long as it is good. I am worried this will be too light hearted and fluffy, she is usually depicted like that so I'm skeptical

Well, not sure if you read much of the comics but it is both written and drawn more geared towards a younger crowd, and based on this it seems the show will be similar. Not necessarily bad, just different.

Sounds like a lot of good talent.

Bad Boys for Life was surprisingly good.
