The inclusion of animation in the series of ‘Ms. Marvel’
The directors remembered their time in Ms Marvel and explained the following. “Animation was not featured in the script or concept art. It was something we really wanted to do inspired by Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. We figured we could do a ‘live action’ version of that. It was also very important for us to get into Kamala Khan’s head and capture the dreamy, fantasy world of him. We love animation and the aesthetics of comics. Combined with Kamala Khan’s fandom for the Marvel Universe, that got us thinking about using animation to reflect that. We were afraid that Marvel Studios would not accept it, because it is totally different from all the MCU shows and movies. So we did a full presentation with YouTube videos and Kevin Feige told us that he liked him, but not to overdo it, to use it for reasons for the character and the story ».
