The United Kingdom is becoming a new hub for Marvel Studios projects and the latest one on the horizon is their Secret Invasion series that will see the Skrull invasion of Earth, but unlikely will be a direct adaptation of the comic book incarnation. Marvel is assembling a very solid cast for the show that will be led by Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn’s Talos with new additions such as Oscar-winner Olivia Colman (The Favourite, Hot Fuzz, The Crown), four-time Emmy nominee Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones, Solo: A Star Wars Story), and Kingsley Ben-Adir (One Night In Miami, Peaky Blinders) said to be playing a villain.
Another actor seemingly has joined the Marvel Studios event as Deadline reports that Irish actor Killian Scott is in talks for unknown role in the Disney+ series. Scott’s credits include Dublin Murders, Damnation, Ripper Street, Calvary, and ’71.
There is an expectation that the show will have a direct connection to Nia DaCosta’s Captain Marvel 2, giving the impression that actresses Brie Larson (plays Carol Danvers), Teyonah Parris (plays Monica Rambeau), and Iman Vellani (plays Kamala Khan) appearing in Secret Invasion alongside other established MCU actors.
We are still waiting on announcements concerning a director as the series is being written by Kyle Bradstreet.
Secret Invasion is said to begin filming this fall and will likely debut on Disney+ sometime in late 2022.
