Exclusive: With casting underway for all the Marvel Cinematic Universe Disney+ shows, I’ve learned two names that are in consideration for Black Bolt and Maximus, respectively, in ‘Ms. Marvel.’
Vin Diesel, who has previously campaigned for the role, is one candidate for Black Bolt, king of the Inhuman Royal Family. He is mute, because the smallest whisper from his mouth can decimate an entire city. Diesel also voices Groot in the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ movies.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who played Quicksilver in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’, is up for Maximus, the brother of Black Bolt. Maximus has psionic abilities and is often an antagonist to Black Bolt.
Ms. Marvel herself is an Inhuman, so it makes sense for them to appear in her series. ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’s Bisha K. Ali is set to serve as writer and showrunner.
There is currently no premiere date, but a spring 2022 release is likely.
