She is so fucking cute omgReply
Iman is so adorable! Maybe she is part jinn irl it’s like she manifested this role or walked out of the MCU into our crap ass timeline lolReply
So much more likable than Brie Larson. And not trading on her sexuality like Brie Larson did at this age. Hopefully she won’t turn angry in her twenties.Reply
Iman Velani was born and bred to be Kamala Khan! She is as perfectly cast as Ms. Marvel as Robert Downey Jr. was for Iron man and Ryan Reynolds was for Deadpool.Reply
Nice job Seth. I.m not to hip on comics to be honest so thanks for trying to explain some of it as you conducted the interview.Reply
This is the kind of interview we need right now! Just watching her enthusiasm and joy, made me feel better about life.Reply
She’s so, so great. And I like that the interview touched on she’s a Pakinstani Muslim, but that never felt like the core of the character — it’s obviously a big part of who she is, but it was never the defining feature, it’s just kind of who she is, and that’s deserving of respect, but not the determining factor.Reply
She is so adorable!Reply
I almost didn’t watch the new marvel show figuring it was something for kids but I’m glad I did. It’s alot of fun and she’s adorable and makes that show worth watching.Reply
So they make a marvel show for 15 year olds that most of them didn’t watch or care about and it was the one with the lowest numbers on D+. But it’s not their fault?Reply
Yes go Iman! South Asians represent!Reply
she definitely has star power, great talent, and she’s beautiful. also, I think cute is her natural state 🤩Reply
How does this keep getting more adorable….Reply
Gotta hand it to Marvel, they do a stellar job at casting!Reply
They could not have picked a better actress for Kamala. She’s adorable.Reply
The fact that this young girl consistently drives self-proclaimed “alpha males” Geeks and Gamers and RK Outpost insane makes me love her even more.Reply
she’s literally the perfect person to play kamala khan. so obsessed with ms marvel, every episode had me smilingReply
WE LOVE YOU IMAN!!!!! 🥰🥰🥰Reply
