Iman Vellani, the Star of ‘The Marvels’, Also Finds the Concept of Time Travel in the MCU As Mind-Boggling as You Do!
Iman Vellani, Star of 'The Marvels', Shares Her Thoughts on the Cryptic Concept of Time Travel in the MCU
Iman Vellani speaks at a fan screening of “The Marvels” in California.
|Are you feeling as confused as a chameleon at a rainbow convention when it comes to Marvel’s mind-bending time-travel escapades? Well, you’re not alone!
|Even Iman Vellani, the talented rising star of “Ms. Marvel” and “The Marvels,” finds herself caught in the web of temporal paradoxes. In an interview with Inverse, the 21-year-old actress confessed to having lost her superhero grip on the comic universe. Initially, she thought she had it all figured out, thanks to “Avengers: Endgame.” But now? She’s more lost than Loki in a maze of mirrors!
|“After my own show, I don’t know,” she exclaimed. “I appreciate them making rules. And then they just make new ones.” Ah, the fickle rules of the Marvel universe! It’s like trying to catch a jellyfish with a spaghetti net.
|During the production of “Ms. Marvel,” where Vellani takes on the role of the young superhero Kamala Kahn, she found herself driven to the brink of madness. Creating a paradox by time-traveling back to the Partition of India in 1947 can do that to a person! “I went literally crazy on ‘Ms. Marvel,’” she confessed. “I was like, ‘This doesn’t make any sense! I cannot sleep at night!’ But it’s fine. I want a Season 2.” Well, at least she’s braver than Captain America facing a horde of Thanos clones!
|But just when she thought she reached the pinnacle of confusion, along comes the second season of “Loki,” dismantling time like Thor smashing his brother’s illusions. Now, Loki himself, played by the charismatic Tom Hiddleston, is going all timey-wimey, slipping in and out of timelines like a slippery eel. At the season’s climax, he sacrifices himself to save dying timelines, aiming to become the God of Stories presiding over the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Talk about a cosmic career move!
|Meanwhile, poor Vellani has thrown in the towel. “I watched all of Loki, and honestly, this was my first time watching something and not trying to understand,” she admitted. “Just vibe, you know?” Sometimes, you just have to let the confusion wash over you like a soothing spa treatment and go with the flow. Vibing seems to be Vellani’s superhero power in understanding the intricacies of the Marvel universe.
|But fear not, fellow Marvel enthusiasts! Amidst the time-travel turmoil, Iman Vellani manages to steal the show in “The Marvels,” appearing alongside powerhouse actresses, Brie Larson and Teyonah Parris. It’s a trio of talent that’ll drop jaws faster than Thor’s mighty hammer!
|So, if you find yourself grappling with the mind-boggling twists and turns of Marvel’s temporal tapestry, take a page from Vellani’s book. Just sit back, relax, and let the Marvel madness wash over you. After all, fashion isn’t the only thing that repeats itself – time does too!
