After Olivia Colman, it’s Emilia Clarke‘s turn to join the cast of the Marvel series Secret Invasion for Disney Plus. The British actress is stepping out of her role as Khaleesi to take on a role currently unknown to the general public.
We will also see her alongside Samuel L Jackson in his famous role as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn, who reprises his role as the shapeshifting Skrull Talos.
Adapted from the Marvel comic book of the same name, Secret Invasion will follow the plan to invade Earth by representatives of the Skrull alien race via their ability to change their appearance. Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), who was seen talking to a Skrull ally in the post-credits scene of the WandaVision finale, may also be featured in the series.
The casting announcement comes as Marvel prepares to unveil the finale of The Falcon And The Winter Soldier, its second Disney+ series after WandaVision, on Friday. The other upcoming Marvel series on Disney+ is Loki, which will launch on June 11, and the Black Widow movie, which will be released in theatres and on the platform on July 9.
This is turning to be a good year with many projects for the MCU and Disney+ which has also concluded an agreement with Sony to broadcast their films on their platform.
