Following on from yesterday’s news that the award-winning Olivia Colman has joined the cast of the MCU’s upcoming TV series Secret Invasion, comes word via Variety that fellow Brit Emilia Clarke is also set to star.

Clarke will be most familiar to us for portraying such major genre characters as Sarah Connor in Terminator: Genysis, Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, and the double-crossing Qi’ra in Solo, a role that she is almost certainly destined to reprise in one of the hundred-or-so Star Wars shows Disney+ has in production. Given that Clarke also managed to win us over in that super-sappy Holiday-themed tear-jerker Last Christmas a few years back, consider us very happy with this new development!

With Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn reprising their roles as Nick Fury and Skrull leader Talos respectively, and Watchmen’s Kingsley Ben-Adir locked as a key villain, Secret Invasion is shaping up to be one of the most exciting projects Marvel Studios have got lined up.

That unfathomably awesome roster, while we’re on the subject, currently looks like this:


  • Loki – (Disney+) June 11th
  • Black Widow – (in cinemas) July 9th
  • What If…? – (Disney+) August
