Iman Vellani says she ‘freaked out’ after discovering that reveal in the Ms Marvel finale: ‘I emailed Kevin Feige in all-caps’

A surprise X-Men reveal in the series finale of Ms Marvel took both fans and the show’s star, Kamala Khan, by surprise.

Ms Marvel star Iman Vellani was the only cast member who was told about the big X-Men reveal in the series finale of the Marvel Cinematic Universe show. And she immediately wrote studio president Kevin Feige an email in all-caps because she was ‘freaking out’.
In the sixth and final episode of the first season of Ms Marvel, Kamala Khan’s best friend Bruno Carrelli reveals to her that there is something different about her genetic makeup. He describes it as a ‘mutation’. And just as he says the word — which has major significance in the Marvel comics — the theme tune from the 90s X-Men animated series plays in the background for a second, hinting that Kamala Khan is the first ‘mutant’ in the MCU.
In an interview with, Iman spoke about the moment she read the script and found out that this detail would be included in the episode’s final moments. “They sent me, and only me, the draft [of the final episode], and I immediately freaked out,” she said. “I emailed Kevin Feige in all caps. I was like, are you doing this like for real? Are you sure? I’m so honoured! I was like yelling at him through an email. I was freaking out. This is the biggest deal in the world, and the fact that it’s happening in our show is crazy.”
Iman said that she had a difficult time shooting the scene, because she kept giggling nervously in the take. “It took a really long time to film that scene because any time Matt would say that word I’d start giggling,” she said. “I think we got the one take. The one you see in the episode is one of two that we got where I was mildly serious. It was really, really, really difficult. I think we have so many outtakes of me just breaking because I was so excited and giddy over this.”
She predicted that fans are going to ‘lose their minds’ at the reveal, adding, “They’re going to lose everything. I did. It’s truly a really big deal.” The show does, however, change Kamala’s origins from the comics, where she is an ‘Inhuman’, and not a ‘mutant’.
And she was right. Here are some reactions from fans on Twitter:
