I'll watch it because I am an uber-comic geek and happily give it a chance to surprise me, but this is the first MCU outing that I have no real interest in. Nothing against the show but it just looks like it's targeting an audience younger than a 53-year-old dude.
Yeah. It's really annoying when Marvel tries to engage audiences that aren't always placed front and center in every single other movie.

A girl superhero? Ugh...

And she's a POC? Like I would ever care about that.

And she's Muslim too?!

Great... they're probably going to shove the whole "Muslim people are people and shouldn't all be thought of as terrorists building bombs in caves" thing down our throats.

HARD PASS!!

As a 47 year-old dude, I only want to see heroes that are amiable middle-aged dudes like me. Superman, Batman, Iron Man, Bruce Banner. I'll even give Spidey a chance because they're all played by guys in their 30s.

OK, this aggressive sarcasm--and the accusations of misogyny and racism--are not warranted or fair. The guy just said he wasn't interested in a film, that's all. Cool it, please.

This looks great. The trailer has a candy-colored slightly Edgar Wright directing Scott Pilgrim kinda vibe. Plus, it's set in my semi-beloved homeland, North Jersey.

Question: her powers are obviously different from the comic & the word 'cosmic' cropped up. Is this version of Ms. Marvel channeling the Power Cosmic, ie are they setting up Galactus?

The power being connected to armbands, the cosmic stuff, and the fact that it seems to express itself as creating energy constructs points toward them mixing the person Kamala Khan with the Quantum Bands used by Quasar.

(At least based on a few seconds of trailer footage, which of course can be me jumping to conclusions.)
 

That's what I figured as well. Though really, there are so many stretchy supers out there. Marvel comics alone has at least a dozen. But Mr. Fantastic is probably their signature stretcher, so I get tweaking her powers for television, since that's a much smaller field of superheroes than the comics.

Likely, some avoiding stepping on the inevitable Mr Richards arrival by mirroring his abilities as well.

I'm pretty excited about her coming TV show. The comics are great, and I enjoyed her parts in The Avengers videogame. The importance of representation with her character matters a whole lot, too.

At least you provide a great example of everything wrong with politicizing tv/movies today. Just because you didn't like a movie or tv show, doesn't automatically mean you are racist.

I have little interest in watching the show, its not for my demographic, but am pleased and proud that marvel is making content for Everyone, especially with Disneys history in Florida.

But damn your kind of comments and attitude really make us liberal swing voters consider voting republican just to teach you a lesson of humility.

I'm wondering to what extent the character being always lost in daydreams may tie into her powers. Like, will she have shades of Green Lantern style "your powers are as strong as you imagine them to be" abilities, or will they be a fixed power set?

Keep the politics out of it, please.

It certainly looks like it helps to be creative with those powers, we see air steps and a shield as well as the signature big fists.

That seems at least a reasonable guess. What little I saw certainly had a kind of Green Lantern vibe, and the Quantum Bands sometimes leaned in that direction.

My 12.5 yo (who misses on the other obvious demographics besides being young) thought the trailer was spectacular.

I'm sure hoping the three of us watch it as a family :)

My teenagers (13 and 16) both liked the look of it. I expect my 10 yo will want to watch it too.

Woah, I am pretty sure I said none of the things you seem to be accusing me of, you may want to go back and reread my post. I specifically said I was willing to give it a chance and that I am hoping to be surprised by it, just that I didn't feel like I was the target audience for the show. I didn't once say anything about the character's gender or religious beliefs or that I was going to hard pass on it nor did I imply any of that.

So that means you don't like any of the Spider-Man films either? Set in high school, after all. Or is it because they actually chose an actress who is close to her character's age, rather then being 8-12 years older than the character?
Nope, I loved of the Spider-Man films and your assumptions are way off base and not justified by my post. I can't believe this is becoming a thing. The film style, at least based on the trailer, is done in a style much different than any prior MCU movies/TV shows and, from my perspective, that style seems to be geared towards a young audience. The Spider-Man movies are straight forward superhero flicks following the tried-and-true MCU method (which is honestly becoming stale). Ms. Marvel is obviously done with a different aesthetic and good for it. Just because something doesn't appeal to me doesn't mean it's bad nor did I say I was. I hope the show finds an audience and that they love it as much as I loved Iron Man, The Winter Soldier, Captain Marvel and Hawkeye.

Did you catch the part of my post where I said I would give it a chance?

Speaking as another 53 year old dude, I feel like that about Moon Knight. I'm too old to have met the character in comics or cartoons and so have no affection for it. Ms. Marvel is also a new character to me, but at least its not trying to be dark and edgy, which is so 90s.
Cool, more power to you. Watch what you enjoy, no big deal. I'm a huge Moon Knight fan and am looking forward to the show. She-Hulk too for that matter.

FYI, I was getting issues of Moon Knight in the mail via a Marvel subscription in the early 80's so he has been around a bit longer than you claim. He did have a resurgence in popularity in the 90's when Stephen Platt was drawing him although I wasn't reading the book then.

I was annoyed at how much they were pushing here in video games, but BECAUSE of the video game push, it made me familiar with her (and if the games are right, with her story as well, though it was covered more in Avengers than X-men and others). She's not a bad hero in them, just too much of a major fan of other superheroes and then becomes one...

It did it's job though. I'm familiar with the superheroine now, and I'm inclined to be interested in something that actually portrays her story in an interesting way.

The trailer does a good job. I haven't been interested in a ton of the new Disney shows, but this one actually looks interesting to me.
 

I know some people here are not sure about this show, but just remember that after this, Ms Marvel will be a bigger part of the MCU, costarring in the next Captain Marvel movie, and who knows what else besides that. So better to watch this and get used to her now.
