After Kevin Feige hinted at the introduction of the Muslim superhero Kamala Khan — alias Ms. Marvel — to the MCU, Riz Ahmed and Mindy Kaling got pretty excited.

Ahmed was the first to tweet about it, with a suggestion for a killer writing team of himself, Mindy Kaling, and Kumail Nanjiani.

So when do @MarvelStudios want me @mindykaling @kumailn to get started on the MsMarvel screenplay ?

Then Kaling replied, revealing herself as a long-time Ms. Marvel fan.

Riz! I am obsessed with this comic book, I’ve read them all. I love Kamala Khan.

— Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) May 16, 2018

The Good Place's Jameela Jamil was also game.

I can also do weekends! ❤️

Co-creator of Kamala Khan and editor of the Ms. Marvel comics Sana Amanat even weighed in with an enigmatic be-monocled emoji.

Co-creator and writer G. Willow Wilson was a little less cryptic.

I may have fainted. 😍

— G. (@GWillowWilson) May 16, 2018

Ahmed had a plan for both of them.

P.S. if we bamboozled then into commissioning us we would just hand the pen over to @GWillowWilson on the sly OBVIOUSLY, let her and @MiniB622 call all the shots 👊🏽

— Riz Ahmed (@rizmc) May 16, 2018

And then the whole conversation gave birth to yet another awesome idea.

Mindy! So why don’t you and @GWillowWilson do a #msmarvel jam comicbook?

— sana amanat (@MiniB622) May 16, 2018

She’s incredible! Just want to support her any way I can!

— Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) May 16, 2018

We sooo appreciate it! If you’re in NY come to @marvel so we can show you what we have in store!

Did somebody say "most ambitious crossover event in history"? No? Well, they should have done.
