Marvel’s upcoming Disney + series Secret invasion has just added Game of Thrones alum according to Emilia Clarke in his growing cast Variety.
She will join the previously announced Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Kingsley Ben-Adir and Olivia Colman in the series. Jackson and Mendelsohn will reprise their MCU roles as Nick Fury and Talos, while Ben-Adir has signed up to play the series’ villain. The roles for Colman and Clarke are currently being kept secret.
Little is known about it Secret Invasion, but it will focus on Fury and Talos, who met during the events of Captain Marvel, along with shape-shifting Skrulls that have infiltrated Earth. The last time we saw Nick Fury and Talos was in the post credits scene before Spider-Man: Far From Home where it was revealed that Talos had taken Fury’s place on Earth, while Fury appeared to be on some sort of mission with the Skrulls in space. The finale of WandaVision also alluded to Fury’s mission and Secret invasion as a Skrull revealed herself to Teyonah Parris’ adult Monica Rambeau with an invitation from Fury to join him in space.
The series is seemingly inspired by the 2008 event series of the same name, where the Avengers discovered that the Skrulls had been invading for years, quietly abducting some of Earth’s most powerful heroes, and assuming their identities until the perfect moment to take full pound.
Secret invasion is written and executive produced by Kyle Bradstreet.
