Oscar-winner Olivia Colman in talks to join Marvel’s ‘Secret Invasion’ – Times of India



Oscar-winning British star Olivia Colman, who is nominated this year for the best-supporting actress Academy Award for her role in ‘The Father’, is in talks to join Marvel Studio’s next series, ‘Secret Invasion‘.

Plot details are still under wraps but the show reportedly uses the events of ‘Captain Marvel’ to focus on Samuel L Jackson‘s secret agent character Nick Fury and a shapeshifter from the alien race known as the Skrulls (Ben Mendelsohn).

There is no clarity on what Colman would play in the series but an infiltration of Skrulls on Earth is said to be a part of the story.

‘One Night in Miami’ star Kingsley Ben-Adir is likely to play the villain in the series, which is yet to find a director.

Kyle Bradstreet, who worked on thriller series ‘Mr. Robot’, is writing and executive producing the series with a shoot planned in UK and Europe later this year.

Colman won an Oscar for her work in ‘The Favourite’ and starred as Queen Elizabeth II in ‘The Crown’.
