Secret Invasion is about to be not like something Marvel has carried out in its 15-year cinematic historical past. Centered round Nick Fury, shape-shifting Skrulls, and all of the espionage therein — this Disney Plus present is certain to blow our minds.
Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury is actually set to return, alongside co-star Ben Mendelsohn as Talos. One new solid member, nevertheless, has the fandom clawing for extra particulars. In an interview with Vanity Fair, actress Emilia Clarke mentioned her character G’iah (pronounced “Guy-ah”) and what followers can count on from the collection. Playing the function of Talos’ daughter, Clarke appears to grasp what having an alien refugee chief for a father would do to an individual.
“It’s hardened her for sure. There’s a kind of punk feeling that you get from this girl. She’s a refugee kid who’s had Talos for a dad, you know what I mean? Maybe the fact that we didn’t know he had a kid up until this point tells you everything you need to know about their relationship.”
The relationship between Talos and G’iah is strained, to say the least. Following an extremist faction of Skrulls who’ve separated from their bigger cohort, Secret Invasion will see Nick Fury and Talos attempt to preserve the peace — all whereas making an attempt to decipher who the heck is whom. Which tends to occur once you cope with shape-shifting unhealthy guys.
After the occasions of Captain Marvel, Fury dedicated to discovering the Skrulls a brand new place to stay. Fast ahead 30-ish years, and he’s nonetheless wanting. Emilia Clarke touched on this plot level in her interview, the place we discover out that sure Skrulls are fed up with all of the empty guarantees.
“These people promised a lot of stuff a long time ago, and not a lot has happened. So understandably, a certain amount of resentment has been built. There’s a lot of emotions that live within her, and there’s a lot of confrontational aspects to her character that have come from circumstance. You understand why she has the feelings that she does.”
Also becoming a member of the solid is Kingsley Ben-Adir of One Night in Miami fame. Ben-Adir occurs to be taking part in our heroes’ direct reverse because the Skrull radicalized faction chief Gravik. Trying to take intergalactic themes and make them approachable as a spy-centric thriller appears to be a tall order, but when anybody can do it — it’s the oldsters at Disney.
Whether it’s Secret Wars, Secret Invasion, or Secret Santa, Marvel is not any stranger to retaining issues below wraps. Little else is understood in regards to the upcoming collection, however with its June 21 launch date, we gained’t have to attend for much longer for the chaos.
