“Secret Invasion”, another one of Marvel Studios many planned projects for the streaming service, will also feature Kingsley Ben-Adir and Ben Mendelsohn. The series is said to use “Captain Marvel” as the jumping-off point and follow a group of shape-shifting aliens who have been infiltrating Earth for years, with Ben-Adir set as the a main villain.
Prior to Clarke’s involvement, it was reported that “The Crown” star Olivia Colman is in talks to play a role in the series.
Clarke’s last project was the 2019 Christmas movie, “Last Christmas”. She also stars as Qi’ra in “Solo: A Star Wars Story”, and will be voicing the character of Malicia in the upcoming Sky Cinema animated fantasy, “The Amazing Maurice”.
