At the other end of the spectrum, the Mrs. Marvel Disney+ television series took a record 97 percent Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, making it the highest entry in the entire MCU, including film and television, and one star is eager to share some screen time with the young new hero.
While speaking on the Bingworthy podcast (via The playlist), Eternals star Kumail Nanjiani revealed he wants Kingo and Ms. Marvel to work together in the MCU. The comedian admitted he had met Iman Vellani, the young actor who played Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel – and gave her nothing but praise for her personality and her performance on the popular show. Read what Nanjiani said about Vellani below:
I would love to pair up with Ms. Marvel! I just love that show and I thought Iman [Vellani] was so good, and I just met her and started hanging out with her, and she’s just such a talented actor and such a great human being and I think we would be great on screen together. I would like to be linked to Ms. Marvel.
How a Ms Marvel and Kingo Collaboration Could Happen
The Eternals were placed on Earth to protect it from their nemesis, the Deviants. After seemingly defeating them, the creatures returned thousands of years later, forcing the team to reunite to fight for the planet’s survival. However, the Eternals eventually learned the truth about their existence, as they were merely the caretakers of a planet-sized egg that housed a gigantic intergalactic being known as a celestial being. Although Kingo chose not to participate in the final battle against, he was lifted into space by Arishem for their sacrifice of the celestial.
For Kingo and Mrs. Marvel to somehow work together, Kingo would probably have to return to Earth after Arishem’s decision on the fate of the planet. However, it’s also possible that Captain Marvel can take Mrs. Marvel far beyond Earth’s galaxy, to where Arishem resides, and encounter Kingo where the heavens are holding him, Sersi, and Phastos. Given Mrs. Marvel ended with Vellani and Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel switching places, leading to the space set the miracles, the door is open for the young hero to encounter Nanjiani’s immortal protector at some point. With Nanjiani previously revealing that he has no information about his character’s future and a Eternals sequel, the public will have to be patient for future MCU updates regarding a possible collaboration between Kingo and Ms. Marvel.
