It’s safe to say we officially live in the Golden Age of Streaming. It seems as though new series are popping up all the time, which makes sense given how many streaming platforms exist nowadays.
Keeping up with it all can be dizzying. You’ve got your Disney+ over here, your Peacock over there, your Netflix behind you, and your Hulu on the roof, somewhere.
Needless to say, there has never been a better time to plop down on the couch and lose yourself in hours upon hours of televised entertainment. Couch potatoes everywhere, rejoice.
Just a couple of weeks after the highly-anticipated debut of the original Star Wars series, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Disney+ will return to the Marvel well with the premiere of Ms. Marvel. That’s not all, of course. She-Hulk and Secret Invasion are both due out later this year, while Moon Knight debuted back in March.
So, there is plenty of Marvel content out there if you’re interested in such things. As you may expect, you can also bet on Ms. Marvel before its debut. Top entertainment betting sites have Ms. Marvel odds out there and ready for your perusal. Which bets are worth your while?
Ms. Marvel Release Date
Ms. Marvel will officially hit the Disney+ streaming platform on Wednesday, June 8th. This will be the seventh TV series based in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to be produced by Marvel Studios.
This season of Ms. Marvel will span six episodes, to be released weekly every Wednesday until the finale on July 13th. Filming began in November of 2020, shortly after young actress Iman Vellani was cast in the lead role in September of that year.
Ms. Marvel was originally announced back in August of 2019, though the pandemic delayed production. The series is designed to serve as a lead-in to the upcoming 2023 film The Marvels, in which Vellani and other characters from the series will reprise their roles.
As mentioned, you can stream Ms. Marvel on Disney+.
Ms. Marvel vs. Captain Marvel
Contrary to popular belief, Ms. Marvel is not the same as Captain Marvel. Back in 2019, Brie Larson portrayed Captain Marvel in Marvel’s first feature film that featured a female superhero.
The film was a huge box office success, though the upcoming series doesn’t involve the same iconic character. The protagonist in Ms. Marvel is Kamala Khan, a 16-year-old self-proclaimed Avengers superfan.
Kamala idolizes Captain Marvel and the other Avengers before she unexpectedly gains powers of her own. She leads a relatively normal life before her world is turned upside-down once she earns the ability to harness cosmic energy.
Will Captain Marvel Appear in Ms. Marvel?
Because Ms. Marvel will span only six episodes, there isn’t a whole lot of time for cameos. Larson also isn’t named in the credited cast for the show, which features Matt Lintz, Mohan Kapur, Yasmeen Fletcher, and others.
So, barring an unexpected cameo, it seems rather unlikely that Captain Marvel will make an actual appearance in Ms. Marvel.
That said, Disney has been known to play things close to the vest, and they always seem to have a few tricks up their sleeves. We also know that Larson previously expressed interest in including the Ms. Marvel character in the upcoming sequel to Captain Marvel, The Marvels.
Because we know Ms. Marvel is essentially a prequel to The Marvels, it’s safe to assume we’ll see Larson and Vellani share the screen at some point in the near future. Unfortunately, it’s unlikely to occur as a part of the upcoming Disney+ series.
As a result, pass on the +500 Ms. Marvel odds for Captain Marvel to appear in the show.
Ms. Marvel Prediction: No (-1000)
Which Other Avengers Could Appear in Ms. Marvel?
Captain America (+300)
The Hulk (+300)
Black Panther (+600)
Black Widow (+800)
Iron Man (+5000)
You can also find Ms. Marvel series odds on whether any other Avengers will make an appearance in the series. As you can see, however, the odds are pretty long on any of the big names to suddenly show up.
Captain America and the Hulk are each listed at +300, followed closely by Thor (+400) and Spider-Man (+500).
While Thor is a long-shot to make a cameo in Ms. Marvel, we won’t have to wait too much longer to see Chris Hemsworth reprise his role as the iconic character. Thor: Love and Thunder, the third Thor-specific film, is set to hit theaters on July 8th.
The third Spider-Man movie was released late last year and put up huge numbers at the box office. That was supposedly the end of Spider-Man’s own trilogy with Tom Holland in the lead role, but the young actors has expressed interest in continuing to portray Peter Parker for as long as he possibly can.
Ms. Marvel protagonist Kamala Khan is from Jersey City, which is awfully close to Spidey’s hometown of New York City. Could we see the two cross paths quickly at some point? It’s not overly likely, but it’s possible. Taking a stab at Spider-man’s +500 Ms. Marvel odds isn’t the worst idea.
The one terrible bet here is Iron Man, whose +5000 Ms. Marvel odds are easily the longest of them all. Spoiler alert: Iron Man is already dead by the time Ms. Marvel is set to take place. Marvel Studios has previously refused to bring Iron Man back from the dead, so we can go ahead and pass on the chances of an unlikely appearance in Ms. Marvel for Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark.
Ms. Marvel Prediction: Spider-Man (+500)
Will Ms. Marvel Die?
Well, this Ms. Marvel prop bet seems pretty straightforward. You’re getting -5000 Ms. Marvel odds on the lead character to survive the six-episode series, with her odds of dying listed at +2500.
Something tells me Marvel won’t introduce a brand new character only to kill her off right away. She’s also just 16 years old, which would make her early death even more depressing. This is a Disney production, after all.
Plus, we already know Vellani is on board to reprise the role of Ms. Marvel in The Marvels, which is due to hit theaters at some point in 2023. Could her character come back from the dead as some sort of hologram? I suppose, but that’s quite unlikely.
Ms. Marvel isn’t dying in Ms. Marvel. There isn’t a whole lot of upside in the -5000 Ms. Marvel odds on the titular character to survive, but it’s also a bet you’re sure to win if you place it.
