It’s been revealed that actress Emilia Clarke is in the final phase of negotiations to join the cast of Secret Invasion, one of Disney’s newest Marvel projects that will be headed for Disney Plus. According to the new announcement, it’s still unclear just what role Emilia Clarke will be tackling. It was suggested, however, that she will be joining a cast that reportedly includes Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Kingsley Ben-Adir, and Olivia Colman.
This is an exciting announcement, and as further revealed via Variety:
“Secret Invasion” was announced as a development property last year, one of Marvel’s many planned titles for Disney Plus. Jackson is reprising his MCU role of Nick Fury, while Mendelsohn will play the Skrull Talos as he did in the feature film “Captain Marvel.” “
They further broke down what the storyline of the series will consist of, explaining that it’s “said to follow a group of shape-shifting aliens who have been infiltrating Earth for years.” As such, it’s definitely going to be a massive new Marvel Cinematic Universe event that comic book fans will not want to miss out on. And with the cast they have lined up for the project, there’s no telling who else could join the ranks. As of right now, the aforementioned Kingsley Ben-Adir is reported to be playing the main villain of the show.
Secret Invasion is being written and executive produced by Kyle Bradstreet. Hopefully we’ll have more details about cast and crew in the near future. And considering how hot of a property this is for Marvel at the moment, we’ll probably be hearing more information real soon. As such, stay tuned to ScreenGeek for any further updates as we have them.
As for now, having actress Emilia Clarke attached to Secret Invasion is a big step forward. The actress has certainly proven herself worthy over the last few years, having participated in projects like Game of Thrones and Solo: A Star Wars Story. It’ll be great to see her step forward into the Marvel Cinematic Universe next.
