Marvel Studios’ Secret Invasion is shrouded in mystery, as befits a series based on the comic book storyline of the same name. With the addition of award-winning actors Emilia Clarke and Olivia Coleman to the MCU cast, the Disney+ series will see the return of Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, Ben Mendelsohn’s Talos, and Cobie Smulders’ Maria Hill.

In comparison to the massive crossover event in the original source material, the MCU’s adaptation of the Skrull invasion storyline remains a mystery. A start date for Secret Invasion has yet to be announced. Nonetheless, new evidence suggests that it could begin in 2023. This is so as it is connected to the events of The Marvels. As seen in some photos, one of the new characters has been spotted on the Secret Invasion set as filming continues in the United Kingdom.

Emilia Clarke’s role in Secret Invasion has remained a secret from both Marvel Studios and the Game of Thrones star. It is almost certain that she will be playing a well-known Marvel character. Furthermore, the casting of Clarke indicates that it will be a significant one.

Before this news came out, most people were assuming Clarke would play SWORD commander Abigail Brand. This rumor persisted even though her hair does not have the character’s signature green coloration. British actor Cobie Smulders was spotted filming with Clarke. This only adds credence to the theory that they are working together.

If Abigail Brand were to make her Marvel Comics debut in Secret Invasion, it would be a major step forward for the company. When she was born on the planet Axus, the super-spy inherited the X-gene. This gave her the power to coat her hands in flames hot enough to cut through metal, from her alien father and human mutant mother.

Of course, it’s possible that Clarke will be playing a completely different character in Secret Invasion than the speculations suggest. Whatever the outcome, her role will be significant and will likely lead to future appearances on other projects.
