Emilia Clarke’s mystery Secret Invasion character has reportedly been revealed. Marvel Studios is expanding its Universe after Avengers: Endgame, and it’s finally giving Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury a solo series on Disney+. The upcoming series, Secret Invasion, puts Fury in the lead role alongside familiar faces like Maria Hill and Talos as they investigate a Skrull takeover plot.
The highly anticipated MCU Phase 5 series will also include several major stars, including Olivia Colman, Kingsley Ben-Adir, and Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke. Ever since it was announced that Emilia Clarke is in the Secret Invasion cast, several fans theories are swirling on social media. Marvel has recently thrown light on the star’s role. Clarke will reportedly set to star as Abigail Brand.
The official social media account of the show recently shared gifs featuring Emilia Clarke’s character and is titled “Its The Beginning Abigail Brand.” The gif features Clarke’s character saying “It’s the beginning,” seemingly confirming that Emilia will play Abigail Brand in Secret Invasion. In the Marvel comics, Abigail Brand is a half-mutant/half-alien who eventually becomes the leader of SWORD, which was introduced to the MCU in WandaVision.
She has pyrokinesis powers in the comics and several encounters with the Avengers and X-Men. Abigail Brand’s role in the Secret Invasion comics is limited, but she does help free Mister Fantastic from the Skrulls. After going to the Savage Land together, they create a device that reveals which Earth heroes are actually Skrulls. Secret Invasion is reportedly gearing up to be one of Marvel’s best series. The series will follow Fury and Talos who try to stop the Skrulls but have infiltrated the highest spheres of the Marvel Universe.
The upcoming Marvel series is certainly one of the most anticipated with the trailer suggesting a paranoia-filled environment that might be recurrent in Phase Five. The series will also feature a batch of familiar faces, including Don Cheadle as James Rhodes/War Machine and Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross. Other cast members include Olivia Colman, Christopher McDonald, Carmen Ejogo, Kingsley Ben-Adir, and Killian Scott.
Marvel’s Secret Invasion will be released on Disney Plus in early 2023. Check Out Secret Invasion trailer here:
