While her stint in directing Marvel heroes was short lived, Lexi Alexander has been generally light-hearted about the experience, joking that she wished Marvel Studios had been in charge instead of Lionsgate. Now, the director of Punisher: War Zone is blowing up Twitter about a different Marvel hero: Kamala Khan.
Kamala is the current hero using the title Ms. Marvel, an honor most famously held by Carol Danvers who, in 2012, took on the name Captain Marvel in a popular book by Kelly Sue DeConnick. Captain Marvel also has the dubious honor of being the first woman to star in a solo Marvel Studios film (currently slated November 2018). But Alexander wants to direct another movie.
Tired of not being able to find superhero merchandise for his 5-year-old daughter, this geek dad took matters into his own hands. With some fabric and a sewing machine, he busted out this awesome Kamala Khan costume for his daughter when they attended New York Comic-Con.
It was even more important since she got to meet and interview Ms. Marvel's writer, G Willow Wilson. They totally nailed it:
First up, it looks like newest SHIELD members, Bobbi 'Mockingbird' Morse and Lance Hunter are going to heading up their own series. The rumors of an Agents of SHIELD spin-off have been circulating for a while, and bringing the super spy, and her on-again/off-again mercenary husband onboard is a move that will closely link these two series. The question remains, what will Mockingbird and Hunter be doing in their spin-off? Will it have something to do with the fallout coming after Avengers: Age of Ultron?
In other Marvel tv news, the man who wrote the screenplay for 12 Years a Slave, John Ridley, is currently working on a secret Marvel project for ABC. While everyone is being tight-lipped about the project, the rumors have started flying. The most likely being an adaptation of Cloak and Dagger or, even more exciting, Marvel's newest hot commodity Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan). There's no news as to how this will affect Agent Carter, which is on the bubble of cancelation following a decline in ratings.
This is still in the rumor phase so Battlestar fans shouldn't get their hopes up, but Ms. Sackhoff let slip that Disney has been inquiring about her schedule come Feb 2014 (also known as Avengers production schedule). This comes on the heels of Louis D'Esposito letting everyone know about Marvel's plan to start running with a lead female super.
