Iman Vellani Net Worth: Iman Vellani is a Canadian actress from Markham, Ontario, who has a net worth of $1 million US as of 2022. With the premiere of her new mini-series “Ms. Marvel” on Disney+, this 19-year-old Pakistani-Canadian actress has joined the ranks of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
She rose to fame after being cast in this series and earned a lot of fame in a short period. And not only does this moment celebrate Iman’s onscreen debut, but it also marks the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s very-first on-screen Muslim superhero. In this popular series, she plays the character of Kamala Khan who is a high-school student dealing with typical teenage issues such as angst and growing pains.
But in the comics, the phrase “growing pains” is taken to some very literal levels with Kamala’s ability to shape-shift her impression and grow her body size to some stunning excessive heights. In the television series, however, those powers have been altered somewhat, but Iman remains happy that an individual of South Asian descent is finally being portrayed to North American audiences as a hero.
Net Worth 2022:
Iman Vellani was born on the 3rd of September 2002 in Karachi Pakistan where she spent most of her childhood before the family eventually immigrated to Canada.
While living in Canada Iman grew up in a family of academics. Her mother is a nurse practitioner while her father is an accountant, and her brother is pursuing his dream to become an engineer.
While a student at the Regional Municipality of York’s Unionville High School Iman didn’t exactly plan on becoming an actress. She was a huge fan of comic books and was heavily influenced by actor Robert Downy JR.
She was allowed to become whatever she want so Iman decided to become an actor at an early age. Her parents gave her $20 every month and she take that money to the comic shop a place named “Heros World.” That’s where Iman started her comic book obsession by picking up a collection of an invincible Iron Man.
In particular, she gravitated towards the trade paperback invincible Iron Man, Iron Heart, written by Brin Michael, which largely collected the first 5 problems of the series. It was in those very pages where Iman met the character of Miss Marvel.
Kamala Khan was first created by American-Pakistain comic book editor Sana Manat alongside writer G Willow Wilson artist Adrian Alfano and Jamie Mckelvie, as well as co-editor Stephen.
She made her first cameo appearance in Issue 14 of Captain Marvel Vol 7 back in 2013. A year later Kamala headlined her own series with the debut of Miss Marvel Vol 3 in 2014. At the time Iman had discovered Kamala was a few years and 1 Vol later more specifically was Issue 19 a Vol 4 released in June of 2017.
Soon enough Iman became obsessed with the character so much that she even decided to dress up as Kamala for Halloween. This very passion led Iman to put aside her indifference toward acting to audition for the role that completely changed her life. Iman’s acting career launched after her aunt encouraged her to give it a shot, but at first, she didn’t want to do it.
Later Iman motivated herself to record something and then sent it in and just after two days later Iman got a call that higher-ups ups at Marvel wanted to fly her to Los Angeles to meet.
In the very next week, Iman and her father were on a plane and Iman was about to partake in what she stated as the “Greatest Week of Her LifImmersedrsed in the Marvel Universe she fangirled out at the meeting and asked for several behind the scene stories and as many Robert Downy pictures as the studio executives were willing to give her.
A week later she returned to Tronto with the intent of returning to LA for another interview, however, the pandemic hit, and everything shut down. Eventually, Iman did her final screen test in June of that same year but this time it was over zoom.
