When it comes to building worlds, Marvel’s mrs wonder The streaming series went deeper than most, introducing Noor’s realm of light into the MCU, as well as The Clandestine, the stranded Djinn who inhabited the dimension before being exiled from his home dimension. But according to one of the show’s writers, the series could have gone even deeper if it weren’t for the runtime limitations.
mrs wonder Writer Fatimah Asghar recently told The Direct that many aspects of The Clandestine’s stories had to be left behind on the cutting room floor. Including many of their individual backstories. “For me, I mean, I think there was a lot of their backstories, so there was a lot of understanding a little bit more about them and their motivations, and where they came from, so I sort of missed those things.” Asghar said. “But I think what’s in there is still really cool. So it’s really cool to see that in terms of how everything was playing out.”
Asghar also revealed that there was more to say about The Clandestine and the mysterious Red Dagger group that briefly protects Kamala in the penultimate episode.
“We always had him come to a head in Episode 5… I think Kamran is really interesting, because he’s an Underground… He says that even in episode 6 when they’re talking [to] the Red Daggers, him and Kamala, and he says, ‘I’m a Clandestine, those people aren’t safe for me…’ And so, in terms of the Clandestine story, Kamran is still a part of that story. … but with [other] clandestine, [the ones we see being led by Najma]that was going to come to a head in Episode 6.”
