What happens when a production company makes a TV series on a Pakistani superhero but the streaming platform isn't available in Pakistan? They take their work to cinemas of course. Ms Marvel, a show about a teenage Pakistani-American superhero will be shown in cinemas across Pakistan.

Filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, one of the directors of the show, made the exciting announcement on Instagram.

Marvel Studios will be releasing Ms Marvel exclusively in cinemas only in Pakistan. Disney and Marvel will be specially creating a cinema format version of the six episode series for Pakistan, split into three parts, according to the director.

Episodes one and two will debut on June 16, three and four on June 30 and five and six on July 14.

"This decision was made to celebrate the introduction of the first Pakistani Marvel superhero, Kamala Khan (played by Iman Vellani), into the MCU. The series also features a diverse cast both in front of and behind the camera," said Obaid-Chinoy. "Disney and Marvel did not want Pakistani audiences to miss out on seeing Ms Marvel and her story as Disney+ has not yet launched in their country."

Vellani plays 16-year-old Kamala Khan, who lives in Jersey City. Kamala is an aspiring artist, an avid gamer, and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, she is a huge fan of the Avengers — and one in particular, Captain Marvel. But Kamala has always struggled to find her place in the world — that is until she gets super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. The trailer for the series released on March 16 and the show will start streaming on Disney+ from June 8.

@Sita white...uh, it's entertainment. You know, like Maryum nawaz TV appearances where she says things like "me or my brothers own no property in London!"
