Disney’s D23 Expo has just happened and one big-good news which makes us super excited is Marvel Studios is going to introduce its first Muslim superhero with Ms Marvel.
She will soon be making her debut on highly anticipated streaming platform Disney+, which will launch internationally on November 12.
While the desi community particularly Muslims can’t stop talking about it and if we talk about actress Mehwish Hayat, she is glad that Hollywood is taking a step forward for Muslim representation with superhero Ms.Marvel.
Recently the 36-year-old actress has lately been vocal about the vilification of Muslim characters in Hollywood and Bollywood films and called for a fair representation of the group.
She called for accurate representation and breaking down stereotypes. Other stars have called for inclusivity in Hollywood for long. The #WhiteOscars boycott was a notable event in this regard.
Hayat took to Twitter and wrote “Great news! Glad to see that the tide is turning. Hollywood seems to be accepting the problem. Long way to go, but it is a start. Hope others will also take heed about representation.”
So, what do you think? Are you excited? Let us know
