Emilia Clarke is reportedly in final talks to join Marvel’s Secret Invasion series, which airs on Disney + and Disney + Hotstar worldwide. Clark is best known for playing Daenerys Targaryen in all eight seasons of the epic HBO Game of Thrones. There is no word on Clark’s character in Secret Invasion, as the role is kept secret, reports say. Clark joins the Secret Invasion lineup, which includes Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelssohn, who return as Nick Fury, and the shape-shifting Skrul Talos, Kingsley Ben-Adir as the villainous leader of the Skrull faction that has been infiltrating for years. Earth, and Olivia Coleman in undisclosed quality.
Diversity for the first time he spoke about Clark in the final negotiations Secret invasion, one of several Marvel Cinematic Universe series that are under development in Disney +. Her sister post Deadline confirmed the news less than half an hour later. Marvel Studios and Disney + declined to comment.
For her work on Game of Thrones, Clark was nominated for four Amy – although she never won. Clark has turned her success in thrones into roles in two major franchises before, with 2015 Terminator: Genisys and 2018 Solo: History of Star Wars. But the critical failure of the films failed to become a continuing franchise role for Clark.
Since we know little about Secret Invasion, it is not clear whether this will be a one-off or something bigger in the MCU. Last week – SPOILER SIGNAL for “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” episode 5 – a miracle revealed that Julia Louis-Dreyfus joins the MCU as Countess Valentina Allegra de Fontaine. Reports say Marvel has “big ambitions” for the character of Louis-Dreyfus. This was a huge contribution to Marvel and followed Coleman casting news in Tuesday. We now have Clark a day later. With Secret Invasion set up as a crossover event, could Clarke and Colman show up elsewhere? Time will tell.
Before the Secret Invasion, we’ll treat ourselves to Tom Hiddleston’s Loki (debuted on June 11) and the star of Iman Velani Mrs. Marvel and Hawk’s gaze with Jeremy Renner and Hailey Steinfeld (late 2021). In 2021, there is much more in cinemas: we directed Scarlett Johansson black Widow (July 9), Shang-chi and the legend of the ten rings (3 September), Eternal by writer-director Chloé Zhao (November 5) and Spider-Man: There’s no way home (December 17).
Kyle Bradstreet (Mr. Robot) is the showrunner, lead screenwriter and executive producer of Secret Invasion. Marvel Studios President and Marvel Chief Creative Officer Kevin Fage will also serve as executive producer.
Secret Invasion is expected to air on Disney + in 2022 Disney + Hotstar. Production is expected to begin in the autumn of 2021 in the UK and Europe.
