As Disney Plus continus to expand and Marvel ramp up production on numerous projects and shows in Phase 4 and beyond, Solo: A Star Wars Story‘s Emilia Clarke is rumoured to be in the final stages of signing up for Secret Invasion, joining fellow Star Wars stars Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn as well as Kingsley Ben-Adir and Olivia Colman.
The “Game of Thrones” headliner’s role is naturally under wraps, and marks her first foray into the Marvel universe. She joins previously-reported cast Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Kingsley Ben-Adir, and Olivia Colman.
“Secret Invasion” was announced as a development property last year, one of Marvel’s many planned titles for Disney Plus. Jackson is reprising his MCU role of Nick Fury, while Mendelsohn will play the Skrull Talos as he did in the feature film “Captain Marvel.”
