In the next few years, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have a lot to look forward to with Phase Four of the mega-franchise. Marvel will introduce many new characters in its upcoming projects, and some of them are already being included in highly anticipated projects.
It was announced that Iman Vellani, the actor playing Kamala Khan, also known as Ms. Marvel, will be making the jump from the small-screen to the big-screen. Vellani will first be starring in her own Disney+ show, Ms. Marvel, and then she will appear in the Captain Marvel sequel, The Marvels. Now, fans have learned that she will not be the only actor from Ms. Marvel to be featured in the film.
Who is confirmed to appear in the film?
According to ComicBook.com, Zenobia Shroff, the actor playing Kamala’s mother in Ms. Marvel, took to Instagram to confirm her involvement in the Captain Marvel sequel. Shroff also suggested that the actors playing Kamala’s father and brother, Mohan Kapur and Saagar Shaikh, respectively, have parts in the film.
The post is a picture of the London Eye. Shroff’s caption describes her time in London, and she tags quite a few people, including Mohan Kapur and Saagar Shaikh. She ends the post with, “Big thank you to [Brie Larson], it was a pleasure to meet and work with you. You are a gracious, beautiful leader, and, of course, to the greatest of them all, Sam the man Jackson, it was the honor of a lifetime it truly was…”
Shroff’s Instagram post has been deleted, though. Perhaps Kevin Feige gave her one of his famous phone calls? In any case, it’s a good thing fans were able to obtain screenshots of the post before it was taken down.

A great student, avid gamer, and voracious fan-fic scribe, Kamala has a special affinity for Super Heroes, particularly Captain Marvel.
