Per a report from The Direct, the duo will direct at least one episode of the series Ms. Marvel.

Ms. Marvel is a shapeshifting Muslim Pakistani-American from New Jersey who becomes the newest holder of the Ms. Marvel identity.

She is the youngest of two children from a traditional Pakistani family, and her powers have been described polymorphous (this means she can stretch and change her shape).

An online statement on the character reads:

“Despite her traditional roots, Kamala was the typical American teenager. Wanting to be herself, but still make her family proud. For several years, Kamala was a fan of superheroes especially the Avengers and, more importantly, Carol Danvers. So much, in fact, that she started writing online fan-fiction about the Avengers and Captain Marvel. Even going as far as joining the Carol Danvers Corps online.”
