Emilia Clarke is in final negotiations for a mystery role in the upcoming MCU series Secret Invasion with Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn.
The "Game of Thrones" headliner's role is naturally under wraps, and marks her first foray into the Marvel universe.
Cast also includes Kingsley Ben-Adir as the likely villain, and Olivia Colman.
"Secret Invasion" was announced as a development property last year, one of Marvel’s many planned titles for Disney Plus. Jackson is reprising his MCU role of Nick Fury, while Mendelsohn will play the Skrull Talos as he did in the feature film "Captain Marvel."
The series is said to follow a group of shape-shifting aliens who have been infiltrating Earth for years. Ben-Adir has been set as the a main villain. Kyle Bradstreet is attached to write and executive produce. Kevin Feige’s unit is producing the series for the streamer, as it does all other MCU titles, including the hits "WandaVision" and "Falcon and the Winter Soldier."
Clarke received four Emmy nominations for her role as Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s Game of Thrones. On the film side, she’ll next be voicing the role of Malicia in the animated film The Amazing Maurice.
