Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige says that the studio has plans for a Ms. Marvel movie after Captain Marvel has been introduced to the world.

“Ms. Marvel, which is another character in the comic books, the Muslim hero who is inspired by Captain Marvel, is definitely sort of in the works,” he told BBC.

“We have plans for that once we’ve introduced Captain Marvel to the world,” he added.

Ms. Marvel was created by writer G. Willow Wilson, artist Adrian Alphona and editors Sana Amanat and Stephen Wacker and made her comic book series debut in February 2014. Kamala Khan is a 16-year-old Pakistani-American from New Jersey, and she became Marvel Comics’ first Muslim character to headline her own comic book.

“Captain Marvel,” starring Brie Larson in the role of Carol Danvers, hits theaters March 6.
