“Ms. Marvel continues to be an amazing series excitingly expanding the MCU! Aramis Knight is another great addition to this universe,” says Thomas Storai in his review

It is time for our weekly Marvel story with a new episode of Ms. Marvel. However, this one is almost coming to an end with only two episodes left.

TRIP TO KARACHI

This week’s episode leads us to Karachi, the largest city in Pakistan. Just like for Moon Knight beautifully recreating Cairo, the Marvel team has done the same for Karachi. There is real attention to detail and authenticity.

Not only it is an important trip for Kamala but it is also important for her mother. Indeed, Kamala’s mother has some unfinished business with her mother. Thus, family plays an important part in this episode. From her grandmother, Kamala has confirmation of what she learned last week about herself. Though, it is from other characters that she learns a lot more about the Clandestines and her origins.

Moreover, this episode allows Kamala to visit her family’s country. I would describe this part of the episode as a slice of life. It is a lot of fun to see that.

This episode introduces the Red Daggers which means Aramis Knight is finally making his debut in the MCU. And honestly, this is an awesome debut for Aramis who plays Kareem. Right away, he has great on-screen chemistry with Iman Vellani. The two form a dynamic duo. I like his character and I cannot wait to see more about him in the last two episodes!

Furthermore, it is from the Red Daggers that Kamala learns more about the Djinn, her origins, and the bangle. This episode reveals a lot and it adds to the lore of the MCU. I love how they keep expanding the universe. Phase 4 has brought a lot of great concepts from the comics. The MCU is heading to a place that is going to be even more exciting than the Infinity Saga.

This episode is not all about reveals, it also features a big pursuit sequence. I love how it was filmed. It is the most memorable action sequence of the series so far. Plus, we see Kamala being more in control of her powers. However, the episode ends on a cliffhanger. So, it is going to be a long wait until next Wednesday!

VERDICT

Ms. Marvel continues to be an amazing series excitingly expanding the MCU! Aramis Knight is another great addition to this universe.

Ms. Marvel is streaming on Disney Plus right now!.
