Oscar-winner Olivia Colman could be joining the Marvel family. The actress is currently in talks to join Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn in Secret Invasion. The upcoming Marvel series will be one of the next additions to the Disney+ roster.
Secret Invasion will find Jackson and Mendelsohn reprising their MCU characters Nick Fury and the Skrull Talos. The two first met in CAPTAIN MARVEL and the series will showcase a faction of the shape-shifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years. Additional plot details are being kept very hush-hush because this is Marvel and that’s what they do so no word yet on what role Colman will be playing in the series. Kingsley Ben-Adir also rounds out the cast.
Directors are currently being lined up for the series while Kyle Bradstreet, who worked on the critically acclaimed cyber-thriller series Mr. Robot, will be writing and executing producing the project. As for shooting locations, “The Hollywood Reporter” indicates that shooting should be set for the fall in the U.K. and Europe.
Colman has been very busy lately and is currently Oscar-nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Father alongside Anthony Hopkins. The actress has already won an Oscar for in performance in The Favourite, which also starred Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz. Colman also received accolades for portraying Queen Elizabeth II in the Netflix period drama series The Crown.
