Wednesday’s episode Ms. MarvelAramis Knight debuted in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a character named Karim. Like his comic book counterpart, Karim is a Red Dagger. Knight is no stranger to exciting comic book movie roles, having played a role in the dark Knight Rises a decade ago. However, it Ms. Marvel The excitement at the gig can be a bit much because he’s old enough to appreciate what’s going on around him. Knight spoke with ComicBook.com in an exclusive interview following his debut, where he spoke candidly about playing Karim, meeting Ms.
“I definitely think there was some research into the comics, but I think the difference between Ms. Marvel And there are so many other comics to show adaptations, is that Ms. Marvel is pretty new,” Knight said. “All these characters are very new, so there’s not a lot of stuff online about them or even in the comics. There are some backstories built up and things like that, but to me, I feel like we’re building up the characters as we move forward. And I think the comics will go with the show. So, it felt great like a clean slate. We were able to have the creative freedom to create the character we wanted to create.”
In the series, Karim is one of the many red daggers. This differs from comics where the character himself is Red Dagger, a formidable ally of Kamala Khan. When two characters meet on a TV show, they fight each other at a train station before realizing they should team up. Knight and Vellany’s first meeting was more peaceful.
“The first time we actually met here in Los Angeles was during our screen test,” Knight recalled. “We were both sitting next to each other in the makeup chair and just talking, super casual meetup. Louis D’Esposito was directing our screen test. So we were hanging out with him. He went to meet him. I didn’t know who he was, so we were just talking about cars and stuff. I had no idea he was practically deciding I was going to play Red Dagger Am or not. Luckily it all worked out very well, but yes it is when we first met.”
Knight realizes that for the best it could be, he didn’t know what D’Esposito was like at the time. If he knew Marvel was talking to the co-president of Studios, it might be very difficult to play it cool. This is a little different from when Knight played a child in need of saving by Catwoman in 2012. the dark Knight Rises, at that time was oblivious to the fact that he was working with such famous actors and filmmakers. “I was 12 when I did the dark Knight Rises, And as a 12-year-old in the industry, you understand nothing about what’s going on,” Knight said. “So I have Christopher Nolan giving me direction. I’m like, ‘Who the f-ck are you?’… and I’m with Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway, and as a kid, I didn’t know who they were. So it was really like any other day on set for me. Looking back now, I feel like, if I was coming on that set at that age, working for two, three days, I would have been very, very scared. But I don’t think you have any hesitation as a child.”
Fast forward 10 years and Knight is in the Marvel universe, fully understanding the weight of everything going on around him. While he doesn’t mind hearing spoilers from the franchise, he remembers that Spider-Man: No Way Home Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield Reprise Their Spidey Roles and Harry Styles Makes MCU Debut Eternal The credits scenes were among the secrets spoiled for him at work.
