Iman Vellani has previously indicated that she is a huge fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The cast and crew of Ms. Marvel all believe that she is unquestionably the number one of Marvel fans. Even going so far as to watch MCU shows on her phone during breaks while filming Ms. Marvel.
In fact, Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige was on the set at one point, urging that the emerging Marvel star watch the series on television rather than streaming them on her phone when she has time.
Iman Vellani’s co-star Saagar Shaikh in a recent interview revealed.
I’ll tell you a secret. Kevin Feige got mad at her for watching WandaVision on her phone. He’s like, ‘They’re not made for phones! Watch it on TV!
Zenobia Shroff continued that there was even a point in a WandaVision show that prompted Vellani to fall to the ground in excitement.
She was on her iPad between takes. WandaVision had come out, and [while she was watching] she said ‘What?’ out loud and she fell to the floor because she was so excited about what she had just seen. I don’t know what it was. I didn’t want to interrupt her viewing. But yeah, she’s very excited. She’s a fangirl.
Feige has earlier revealed how much of a Marvel fan Iman Vellani is, claiming she’d bring a giant notepad around set to scribble down thoughts and speculations.
Much like Tom Holland and Peter Parker, Iman is a much bigger Marvel fan than we realized. [On set] she carries this Unabomber notebook with her everywhere, with her scribbles and ideas. And why wouldn’t we want to hear them? Not just because she’s playing the lead, she’d be commenting on the show online. So, better comment before the show’s done, and try to incorporate some of those ideas.
Ms. Marvel is available on Disney+.
