At the closing stage of The Marvels, Vellani’s Kamala Khan, AKA Ms. Marvel, sneaks into the apartment of none other than Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld), protégé of Hawkeye from Disney+ series Hawkeye.

She’s pulling a Nick Fury and recruiting her for The Young Avengers, a superhero team from the comics.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Vellani reveals what other options were on the table. “And then there were rumors that we were going to get to it in additional photography, but with a different young Avenger. So I never really got the script until right before additional photography and then I flipped out…So I was giddy the entire time. All of us were freaking out. It was also the last scene we shot for the movie, and it is the last scene of the movie.”

Vellani continued, “Suddenly, it felt like I was a part of something much bigger.” But there was an even bigger scene: the one that happens after the movie concluded, which introduces Kelsey Grammer’s blue mutant, Beast, last seen in 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand.

“I did not realize Beast [Kelsey Grammer] was in it. I knew they shot it, but I was expecting to see something else. And lo and behold, they kept the secret even from me. I literally jumped and had a heart attack on my bed when I watched it for the first time. I literally texted every single person we worked with, and I was like, “How could you keep this from me?” But at least I got to experience it as a fan, which was so cool. I’m just so excited to see what they do with that in the future.”
