The official first-look Secret Invasion photos from Marvel Studios’ upcoming series have finally been revealed through Vanity Fair, showing off its star-studded cast. Described as a game-changing espionage thriller, the limited drama is currently expected to premiere on June 21, exclusively on Disney+.
The Secret Invasion photos also confirm some character details pertaining to MCU newcomers Emilia Clarke, Olivia Colman, and Kingsley Ben-Adir’s roles. It has been revealed that Clarke will be playing Talos’ Skrull daughter G’iah, who will be a part of a radicalized group of Skrulls led by Ben-Adir’s resistance leader Gravik.
Meanwhile, Colman is set to portray an antagonistic MI6 agent. “It’s somebody that you’ve never seen her play before,” lead star Samuel L. Jackson said about Colman’s mysterious character. “She’s cold-blooded and just relishes being that person.”
Disney+’s Secret Invasion series will be led by MCU mainstay Samuel L. Jackson as he reprises his role as Nick Fury. He will be teaming up with Captain Marvel‘s Ben Mendelsohn, who is returning as Talos — the pseudo-leader of the Skrulls.
Joining them are MCU newcomers Kingsley Ben-Adir (One Night in Miami) as the series’ main villain, Oscar winner Olivia Colman (The Crown), Emmy nominee Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Killian Scott (Dublin Murders), Christopher McDonald (Happy Gilmore), and Carmen Ejogo (Fantastic Beasts), along with MCU vets Cobie Smulders, Martin Freeman, and Don Cheadle.
Based on Brian Michael Bendis, Leinil Francis Yu, Mark Morales, and Laura Martin’s comic book series, Secret Invasion is executive produced by Kyle Bradstreet (Mr. Robot), with Let Him Go director Thomas Bezucha and Ali Selim (The Looming Tower) set as directors.
