Fletcher rumoured to be on Disney’s Ms Marvel cast
It has been rumoured that Yasmeen Fletcher is set to play Nakia Bahadir, friend of Kamala Khan/Ms Marvel in the upcoming 2021 Disney show.
However, there has been no official announcement regarding casting for Ms Marvel as of yet.
The controversy stems from the fact that Yasmeen would be a Christian actress playing the role of a Muslim character, which some fans have deemed inappropriate.
However, this is still just a casting rumour – we’re going to have to hold out a little longer to see the full confirmed list!
