Marvel Studios’ most recent Disney+ installment, Ms. Marvel, introduced its title character, Kamala Khan, to the MCU. The Jersey City teen inadvertently unlocked dormant superpowers when she put on a mysterious bangle and she was soon fighting extradimensional beings and wayward government agents.
The scene in which Bruno explains the source of Khan’s powers comes at the very end of the season and serves as the last bit before the credits. In classic Marvel fashion, there was a post-credits scene, but that was more meant to be set up for the upcoming film The Marvels.
Kamala’s Mutation Reveal Was Intended for Post-Credits
According to Ms. Marvel lead Iman Vellani during an interview with New Rockstars, the scene in which Bruno reveals Kamala’s mutation was originally intended as a post-credits scene for Episode 6, which concluded with a tag featuring Brie Larson’s Carol Danver.
If Iman Vellani’s words are anything to go by, Marvel Studios’ 2023 film The Marvels should hold the answers to many of the questions posed by the end of Ms. Marvel.
It does feel as though the creative team behind Ms. Marvel made the right choice in moving the final conversation between Kamala, Nakia, and Bruno to a spot before the end credits. This way, the scene serves as a nice coda for the season after the large-scale final battle between Kamala and the DODC. Not to mention that the sequence sets up not only a potential second season but serves to broach the topic of mutants in the MCU.
Mutants, namely the X-Men, are expected to play a big role in various Marvel Studios projects at some point, but nothing has been officially announced beyond vague promises that something ,utant-related is coming.
All six episodes of Marvel Studios’ Ms. Marvel are now available for streaming, only on Disney+.
