Ms. Marvel Directors Confirm Rumoured Easter Egg

Ms. Marvel Directors Confirm Rumoured Easter Egg

The Disney+ show has proved to be a hit with Marvel fans

Warning: This article contains spoilers

The directors of Ms. Marvel have confirmed a huge easter egg hidden in the series finale.

The Disney+ series stars Iman Vellani star as the young Kamala Khan, who discovers she has extraordinary powers.

As well as bringing yet another superhero to our screens, the show broke new ground by creating Marvel's first muslim protagonist.

The synopsis reads: "Ms. Marvel is a new, original series that introduces Kamala Khan, a Muslim American teenager growing up in Jersey City. An avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, Kamala is a Super Hero mega fan with an oversized imagination—particularly when it comes to Captain Marvel.

"Yet Kamala feels like she doesn’t fit in at school and sometimes even at home—that is, until she gets super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life gets better with super powers, right?"

The season finale included a major easer egg.

In the final episode of the six-part series, Kamala finds out that she actually has a mutation.

During the climactic scene, Kamala's best friend Bruno - played by Matt Lintz - tells her that he looked at her genetic makeup after learning about her abilities.

He says: "Kamala, there’s something different in your genes. Like a mutation."

Immediately after some familiar music starts to play in the background - which fans recognised as being the X-Men theme.

Writing on social media, one excited fan wrote: "Oh what a finale... Kamala finally learned her name's actual meaning which led to her eventual hero name. The unexpected cameo and the word "MUTATION" is canon to the MCU at last!"

While another added: "Hey played the X-men '97 theme in Ms. Marvel bc we find out that both the inhumans and mutants were created by the celestials like the eternals were which ties into the next big event

Well, speaking to Rotten Tomatoes, the show's directors, Adil El Arbi and Billal Fallah, have now confirmed the theory.

"It is there," El Arbi told the site.

Expanding on the reference, Fallah added: "When we read it in the script, we were like, 'Oh, that's for reals?' And I got instructions to use that little track, but we didn't get any more information than that."

Speaking to about the decision to ad the word 'mutated' into the script, head writer Bisha K. Ali said: "Oh my god, best day of my life!"

However, Ali admitted that it wasn't always going to be that way.

She went on: "It wasn't from the beginning [of the show]. With Marvel, something's always a moving piece, and we're trying to solve this question of, 'If any of [Kamala’s family] put the bangle on, would they have powers?'

"The answer was always no, from a character perspective, no."

And when Vellani found out what the plan was for her back story, she was over the moon.

Recalling a conversation with Marvel boss Kevin Feige, the teenager said: They sent me, and only me, the draft [of the final episode], and I immediately freaked out.

"I emailed Kevin Feige in all caps. I was like, are you doing this like for real? Are you sure? I'm so honoured! I was like yelling at him through an email. I was freaking out. This is the biggest deal in the world, and the fact that it's happening in our show is crazy."
