The upcoming video game Marvel's Avengers from developer Crystal Dynamics and publisher Square Enix is basically an entirely new adaptation of the iconic Marvel characters, taking aspects of their comic origins and previous iterations to synthesize them into something entirely new. And it also means the characters needed new actors, both for motion-capture purposes and to voice recording. As revealed this past weekend at New York Comic Con, Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel has joined the fight, and the folks behind the game have also revealed who portrays the extremely popular character.
More specifically, the developers and publishers announced at this past weekend's convention that Sandra Saad, who is largely known for her work on other video games like Fallout 76 and Rage 2 among others, will portray the embiggening superhero. You can check out part of the promotional push for the casting reveal, including some brief mocap footage, below:
