Another female superhero is coming to the Marvel screen universe.

Disney+ is developing a "Ms. Marvel" series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The streaming service has hired British writer Bisha K. Ali ("Four Weddings and a Funeral") to write and act as showrunner.

An announcement about the series may occur during today's D23 Expo.

The most recent version of the hero, which is the one the show will use, is the teenager Kamala Khan, Marvel’s first Muslim character to be lead her own comics title.

A Pakistani American living with her religious family in New Jersey, Khan has the ability to stretch and change her shape.

It's unclear how the "Ms. Marvel" show would fit into the rest of the Marvel cinematic and television universe.

It's one of a number of Marvel projects in the works at Disney+. Others include "Avengers" spinoffs "Falcon and Winter Soldier," "WandaVision," "Hawkeye," and "Loki."
