Kevin Feige says the Marvel movie-verse could add the Muslim Ms. Marvel to their cast

As if we needed another reminder the Marvel movie franchise was capable of turning more leftist and SJW-pandering than it already was, the producer Kevin Feige just told the BBC they could be introducing the SJW-pandering Muslim character Kamala Khan to their movie productions:
Comic lovers have been championing the character to get her own starring role in the MCU for a long time now.

And it looks like their wishes might have just been granted, as Marvel Studios’ CEO Kevin Feige opened up about bringing the Muslim superhero into the franchise.

During an interview with the BBC, he revealed that the teen icon, Kamala Khan, is ‘definitely, sort of, in the works.’
Umm, what comic lovers, exactly? Only the most mindless leftists and apologists for the Religion of Peace. The book long ceased to sell whatever amount it did above 20,000 copies. Now, it sells little more than a more dismal 13,000. But it doesn't really surprise me that characters whose components are as PC and SJW-pandering as the Khan character's are could be shoved down the audience's throats so badly.
He said: ‘Captain Marvel’s shooting right now with Brie Larson. Ms. Marvel, which is another character in the comic books, the Muslim hero who is inspired by Captain Marvel, is definitely sort of in the works.

‘We have plans for that once we introduce Captain Marvel.’
But who knows how well the Captain Marvel movie will do? If anything, it'll only muddle Carol Danvers' history even more. If you look at her publication history under a magnifying glass, you'll notice it's not like she ever had a truly successful or sustained run as a solo series act. The original series only ran 3 years (1977-79), and she wound up quitting the Avengers after getting angry at them for not defending her against Immortus in the questionable Oedipus Rex-like story from issue #200. She'd maintained a relationship with the X-Men before acquiring new powers and taking up the name Binary, at which point she later joined the Starjammers for a time before eventually returning to the Ms. Marvel identity. However, during Kurt Busiek's run on Avengers, she took the name Warbird. It was during the late 2000s she returned to the Ms. Marvel role, but that series was sabotaged by crossover tie-ins like Civil War, which only served to undermine what personality could be ascribed to her. And then, by 2014, writers like Kelly Sue DeConnick really began to denigrate Carol by gradually turning her masculine and her costumes modest. The artwork of recent is particularly ugly.

With that kind of erratic history, how can moviegoers really care for Danvers as a comics character? And if the new movie draws from the worst PC-laden storylines of recent, how does that make a good movie? The news that producers like Feige are also going to adapt a character like Kamala Khan whose very structure was meant for politicized, SJW-catering purposes is not going to make things any better. At least it tells us the Marvel moviemakers are just as bad as the Quesada/Alonso/Brevoort bunch, who until now only wrote screenplays appealing to a more commercial vision out of a "patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel" mentality. The character's already appeared in an animated series they've produced, another clue how they're going to such lengths to force their PC visions down everyone's throats. As noted in this BBC article:
No firm plans have been announced yet - least of all casting - but there's speculation that Priyanka Chopra could be a shoo-in for the role.

The actress already voices the character in the mobile video game Marvel: Avengers Academy
Well there's one video game nobody needs to waste money on. If such obvious politics are going to accompany the character in any medium, then that's why Khan remains one of the worst-developed Marvel's produced of recent. They could at least move her to a role of her own, and give Carol back the role she really was meant to have - Ms. Marvel. That said, it's a terrible shame Carol was never handled as well as she could've been, or given a chance to really shine and be built up when it mattered.
