The development of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is unstoppable. From the beginning, it is very clear that the interaction of the different superheroes, who are presented in each installment of the origin or not, is one of its pillars. With joint adventures as satisfying as The Avengers (2012), Captain America: Civil War (2016), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), or Endgame (2019). And next June, one of the new Marvel series will arrive, Ms. Marvel, the miniseries by Bisha K. Ali (2022).
This is the story of Kamala Khan, a Pakistani-American teenager, fond of writing fan-fiction about Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers, who achieves her own powers, played by Canadian Iman Vellani and whom we will see again later in the film The Marvels, directed by Nia DaCosta (2023). She was created by writer G. Willow Wilson and artist Adrian Alphona for Captain Marvel issue fourteen in August 2013.
But this superheroine is not alone in her first adventure, and Disney has let us see a brief preview, entitled “Not Alone”, in which, among other things, Kareem or Red Dagger appears for a few seconds, another skilled young man who works as vigilante It also came from the imagination of writer G. Willow Wilson, but with artist Mirka Andolfo in pencil, and was introduced to us in Ms. Marvel issue 12, which was released in October 2016.
An experienced young actor for the Red Dagger in ‘Ms. Marvel’
This superhero uses a red scarf to mask himself and hide his identity and knives as a throwing weapon. He is played by the Californian Aramis Knight, who, unlike the rookie Iman Vellani, we have already seen in more than forty audiovisual proposals. For example, Tito Pérez in Boston Legal (2004-2008), Sam from Lost (2004-2010), Carlos in Dexter (2008-2013), Alex Dos Santos from The Mentalist (2008-2015) or MK in Into the Badlands (2015-2019).
And, on the big screen, he has stepped into the shoes of Jeremy El-Ibrahimi in Anwar Files (2007), the boy with an apple in The Dark Knight Rises (2012), and Bean in Ender’s Game (2013). However, he is wearing his red bandana and we cannot recognize him in the trailer for Ms. Marvel. And, in any case, we had already been able to take a look at the look of Aramis Knight’s Red Dagger in a piece of promotional art. But here are real pictures.
