Following the release of the first official Ms. Marvel trailer, the Disney+ series also received a handful of new merchandise, including one item that hints at a major, Avengers-themed convention.
A new throw blanket from Hot Topic was released as an online exclusive and references something called “New Jersey Avengercon,” which is likely something that will come up in the series later this year. With Ms. Marvel‘s Kamala Khan an avid fan of superheroes and very big into the world of cosplay and fanfiction, it wouldn’t be shocking to find the superhero-to-be at a convention dedicated to them.
Check out the Ms. Marvel merch below:
Just like any other convention, it seems like Avengercon has some big exhibits, including one dedicated to Captain Marvel, whom Khan is a major fan of. Other exhibits include “The Hills of Asgard,” “The Realm of Asgard,” and “Hulk’s Rage Room,” which sounds just as fun as its name suggests.
“Ms. Marvel introduces Kamala Khan—a 16-year-old Pakistani American from Jersey City,” reads the official synopsis. “An aspiring artist, an avid gamer, and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, she is a huge fan of the Avengers—and one in particular, Captain Marvel. But Kamala has always struggled to find her place in the world—that is, until she gets superpowers like the heroes she’s always looked up to.”
The series is directed by executive producers Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah, Meera Menon, and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, with executive producer Bisha K. Ali serving as head writer.
Following the series, Vellani’s Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel will next be seen in Nia DaCosta’s Captain Marvel sequel titled The Marvels starring opposite Brie Larson and Teyonah Parris, which is currently set for a February 17, 2023 release.
