Get Ready for the Upcoming Ms. Marvel Series by Learning About the Hero’s Powers

Published

on

Although the first couple of Marvel TV shows on Disney+ are focusing on existing characters, we’re especially excited to meet “Ms. Marvel,” aka Kamala Khan. Since she hasn’t been in other on-screen Marvel properties yet, you might be wondering who she is or what her powers are, and we’ve got the answers! Iman Vellani is set to play Ms. Marvel, whose powers actually derive from a familiar source to most Marvel fans: the Inhumans.

Ms. Marvel vs. Captain Marvel

In the comics — check out Ms. Marvel: Kamala Khan to start — Kamala Khan is the second person to take the mantle of Ms. Marvel, following Carol Danvers (who, in the comics, started out as a hero called “Ms. Marvel” before becoming Captain Marvel; the movie version of Carol appears to have skipped that to avoid confusion). Kamala is a teenager from New Jersey, a Pakistani-American Muslim girl who idolizes Carol Danvers — at one point, she can even be spotted in the background of a scene where Carol is protecting a group of civilians from the Kree villain Yon-Rogg.

Ms. Marvel Powers, Explained

Following a storyline called “Inhumanity,” in which Terrigen Mists are released throughout the world and activate dormant cells in Inhuman descendants, Kamala discovers that she, in fact, is an Inhuman too. Her superpower is, essentially, shape-shifting: she can lengthen her limbs, change the shape and size of her entire body, and alter her overall appearance. In fact, she first realizes this power when she emerges from her Terrigenesis cocoon: she temporarily looks like her idol, Captain Marvel aka Carol Danvers. Upon realizing that she has acquired superpowers and how they work, Kamala decides to become a hero in the mold of Captain Marvel and even picks up Carol’s previous, discarded moniker to use as her own.

Shapeshifting is Kamala’s primary power, but as it turns out, she can use and stretch that power to do other things too. For instance, if she gets injured while in a transformed form of any kind, she can heal from those injuries by transforming back to her original, “real” appearance, since, technically, that body was uninjured. She can also transform individual parts of her body to assist her in a fight; one favorite trick she does in the comics is enlarging her fists to pack a (literal) super punch. While she’s not a near-indestructible alien being like her idol, Kamala has plenty to offer as Ms. Marvel, and we can’t wait to see her onscreen when “Ms. Marvel” arrives on Disney+ on June 8.

Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 vs Dhaakad BO day 1: Kartik starrer off to a flying start; Kangana starrer extremely dull

Published

on

Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 finally looks to set things in order for the Hindi film industry, which is going through its most horrific year of all, with Bollywood movies flopping left, right and center before the might of South film, so much so that even big-name ones are arriving and disappearing without much awareness. The advance booking of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 tracked so well that the Kartik Aaryan, Kiara Advani and Tabu starrer has probably brought in the best pre-release numbers ever since COVID-19 first shut theatres, going past the ₹8 crore advance ticket sales of Ranveer Singh’s 83.

Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 vs Dhaakad morning shows tracking

That advance tracking has borne fruit and how, with Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 reporting fantastic occupancy for its morning shows in the range of 35-40% all across India, especially in the core Hindi belt of the B and C centres, where Bollywood has taken a severe beating in recent times. With these territories performing well for the sequel to 2007’s hit Bhool Bhulaiyaa, the film could be in for some brilliant numbers over the first weekend. On the other hand, Kangana Ranaut starrer Dhaakad is dull across the board, with hardly anybody turning up for the morning shows anywhere.

So, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 looks to finally set Bollywood back on track and bring back some much-needed cheer to Hindi cinema after ages. As per our trade sources, the Kartik Aaryan and Kiara Advani starrer, which also sees Tabu, Rajpal Yadav and Sanjay Mishra in key supporting roles, already collected about ₹1 crore nett for day 1 and about a total of ₹4 crore nett for its first weekend. Apparently, about 1 lakh ticket were already sold across the entire Hindi belt before the first show hit the big screen.

Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 vs Dhaakad box office prediction day 1

Coming to the opening day collection, the Anees Bazmee directorial is set to surpass all expectation and rake in about ₹15 crore nett on day 1, well ahead of Gangubai Kathiawadi’s a ₹10.50 crore nett, which was the opening record for Bollywood post lockdown. Even in pre-pandemic times, this would have been regarded as a fantastic opening for a mid-sized film in the horror comedy genre. Whereas, Dhaakad, starring Kangana Ranaut, Divya Dutta, Arjun Rampal and Saswata Chatterjee, will be lucky to even go above a paltry collection of ₹1 crore nett on day 1.

Aryabhatta, Sundar Pichai have bigger fans than stars and actors put together, says R Madhavan

Published

on

On Thursday, actor R Madhavan stated that Indian cinema has largely ignored stories about science and technology and its many pioneers, such as legendary mathematician Aryabhatta and Google CEO Sundar Pichai.

Madhavan was speaking at the India Forum in Cannes alongside Union minister Anurag Thakur, filmmaker Shekhar Kapur, lyricist and CBFC chairman Prasoon Joshi, and American journalist Scott Roxborough, whose directorial debut Rocketry: The Nambi Effect had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Market on Thursday.

“From Aryabhatta to Sundar Pichai, we have such extraordinary stories as far as science and technology is concerned. We are not making movies about these people. These people are the aspirations for the youngsters around the world. They have bigger fans than stars and actors put together,” A news agency quoted Madhavan as saying.


“I’ve met these guys from Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh who started a new Metaverse and are into web 3.0… We’re not making movies about such success stories… There’s one aspect of India that is so aspirational today, that we as filmmakers or people talking about India, are completely ignoring and that is the excellence in science and technology,” Madhavan continued.

Citing Hollywood filmmaker Christopher Nolan, known for his acclaimed science-fiction films Inception, Interstellar, and Tenet, the 51-year-old actor-director stated, “When Christopher Nolan makes a film called ‘Inception’ or ‘Interstellar’, the reviewers go there afraid that they hope they get what he’s trying to say because they don’t want to give the review and sound like an idiot. Because they didn’t get it, they know that it’s a scientist who’s making a movie. That’s how qualified he is.”

R Madhavan

“I still haven’t understood ‘Inception’ till now but I have all the respect for the guy because he has that much knowledge about science. And he’s absolutely unconcerned about the fact that the audience may or may not get it,” he proceeded.

Kris Jenner is giving more evidence to the reports that Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are going to have their wedding in Italy this weekend! Just hours after HollywoodLife and other outlets reported that the pair’s wedding will take place in Italy on the weekend of May 21, Kris was seen running some errands in the town of Portofino. She rocked a sheer black dress, emblazoned with silver stars, for the outing, and had a huge smile on her face as paparazzi snapped photographs.

Kourtney and Travis officially tied the knot on May 15 in Santa Barbara. However, only Travis’s father and Kourtney’s grandmother were in attendance. The Italy wedding is reportedly still set to be an intimate affair, but more of the stars’ loved ones are expected to show. This will be the THIRD wedding for Kourtney and Travis, who also eloped in Las Vegas after the Grammy Awards on April 3. However, that wedding was not deemed official, as they did not get a marriage license beforehand.

This will be Kourtney’s first marriage, although she was with her ex, Scott Disick, for nearly 10 years before they split in 2015. When she was with Scott, Kourtney admittedly never saw marriage in her future. However, getting together romantically with her longtime friend, Travis, changed her feelings about the future!

Travis and Kourtney went from platonic to romantic in the fall of 2020, and he proposed on the one year anniversary of them taking the relationship to the next level in Oct. 2021. Amidst their engagement and wedding planning, Kourtney and Travis have also been trying to have a child of their own. A recent episode ofThe Kardashians showed the couple in the aftermath of an unsuccessful embryo fertilization. However, they remain hopeful that they’ll be able to bring a baby of their own into the world. Kourtney has three children with Scott, while Travis has two, as well as a stepdaughter, with ex, Shanna Moakler.
