Earlier today, we revealed Marvel’s Secret Invasion series would be filming under the working title of Jambalaya during it’s production run in the United Kingdom.
There is even more potential news about the Skrull crossover event series as The Illuminerdi claims that British actress Carmen Ejogo has been offered a role in Secret Invasion. While The Illuminerdi has been right in the past it’s worth waiting until this casting tidbit is confirmed by a trade outlet before getting too excited.
Ejogo’s credits include Alien: Covenant, Fantastic Beasts, and Selma.
Secret Invasion’s impressive cast already consists of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Ben Mendelsohn as Skrull leader Talos, Oscar-winner Olivia Colman (The Favourite, Hot Fuzz, The Crown), four-time Emmy nominee Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones, Solo: A Star Wars Story), Kingsley Ben-Adir (One Night In Miami, Peaky Blinders) said to be playing a villain, and most recent addition to the Marvel series is character actor Christopher McDonald (Hacks, Happy Gilmore).
We’ll also be patiently waiting to hear if cast members of The Marvels will be showing up in Secret Invasion.
The show’s head writer is Kyle Bradstreet with directors Thomas Bezhucha (Let Him Go) and Ali Selim (The Looming Tower) recently announced.
Given that production is taking place later in the year, we shouldn’t expect to see Secret Invasion begin airing on Disney+ until late 2022 or early 2023.
