As we near the end of the series Falcon and the Winter Soldier, the final episode of which will air on Friday April 23rd on Disney +, the streaming platform is preparing the sequel. Of course there is Loki, the series with Tom Hiddleston, which will show its nose very quickly. But the very big piece on the program is still Secret Invasion. The series, adapted from the comics of the same name, is an XXL bet for Marvel and Disney +. We’re talking about a massive story that could possibly have been developed like Endgame. But nothing should be left to chance, even if it’s a series.
Secret invasion strengthens its cast
We already knew the names of the main actors. In program ? Samuel L. Jackson, who plays Nick Firy and Ben Mendelsohn (Talos), who previously made the couple in Captain Marvel. We also know that Kingsley Ben-Adir will be the show’s great evil. But in the past few days, two very big names in the series world have come to strengthen that cast.
The first to be announced is that of Olivia Colman, best known for her role as Elizabeth II on The Crown series. The second ? It’s just Emilia Clarke, Game of Thrones’ Khaleesi. It is not known what role the two women will play in this series, however, but they likely weren’t hired to put the numbers together. After Game of Thrones and Star Wars (Qi ‘ra in the movie Solo), Emilia Clarke joins a third very large franchise.
The story of the secret invasion is that of the invasion of Earth by the Skrulls, the alien race featured in Captain Marvel. They can change their appearance, gradually replacing important members of society and even superheroes. It remains to be seen how this story will be dismissed on the series.
