When we watch Ms. Marvel episode 5 online this week, we’re nearing the end of the line for this installment of the adventures of Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani). Sure, we know that the lovable new addition to the MCU is headed to the big screen in The Marvels, the upcoming Marvel movie that’s the sequel to Captain Marvel, but we’re kinda wishing we could have more of Kamala in this situation: her own story.
Ms. Marvel episode 5 release date, time and more
Release date and time: Ms. Marvel episode 5 arrives on Wednesday (July 6) on Disney Plus (opens in new tab), starting at 3 a.m. ET. Full release schedule below.
Cast: Iman Vellani, Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur
Directors: Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah
Speaking of personal stories, Kamala’s actually fallen back in time, after Najma (of the Clandestines) stabbed her bracelet and created some sort of rift. Now, Kamala’s at the Karachi train station where her family’s long-obscured story from the Partition took place.
This, as folks who watched WandaVision and Moon Knight may realize, feels oddly familiar. Marvel’s Disney Plus shows have an interesting habit of placing their big flashback episode — where we get to learn secrets that explain more of the storylines taking place — in the penultimate chapters of their shows.
Earlier in the episode, Kamala met Kareem, who first thought she was a threat because he sensed the Noor in her being. We also learned that the Clandestines left Kamran back in D.O.D.C. custody.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch Ms. Marvel episode 5 online. Oh, and check out this rewind to Aamir and Tyesha’s wedding:

Ms. Marvel trailer and teaser
In the first full Ms. Marvel trailer, we see Kamala in school and discovering her powers. Of course, it seems like the series will deviate from the comics, eschewing the Terrigen mists and any mention of the Inhumans, both of which were key to her original origin story.
At Disney Plus Day, the brief teaser showed how Kamala Khan doesn’t expect to get super powers, and got them anyways. She walks on air, it appears, in a makeshift Captain Marvel outfit, but we don’t see how her stretchy powers look. You can find that clip on Disney Plus (opens in new tab).
At Disney Investor Day in December, Marvel unveiled a sizzle reel teaser for Ms. Marvel. It introduces Kamala as “a new kind of superhero” but “at the core it, her story is so universal.”
Marvel boss Kevin Feige notes she’s a newer character in the comics. The rest of the teaser highlights the lineup of directors: Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, Meera Menon, and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy. And the sizzle reel features the first look at footage of Vellani inhabiting the role.
