Secret Invasion trailer infiltrates D23 Expo 2022
Sonya Falsworth is one of two MCU newcomers highlighted in the new Secret Invasion trailer, which recently premiered at D23 Expo 2022. Emilia Clarke plays the other yet-unknown addition to Marvel Studios’ shared universe, who warns Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) of an impending threat not specified and is seen brandishing a firearm in multiple shots. Besides Fury, the trailer also teases the return of several other MCU mainstays such as Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), Talos (Ben Mendelsohn), James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Don Cheadle), and Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman) , and strengths Secret Invasionthe paranoid atmosphere.
Speculation surrounding Clarke’s role in Secret Invasion has only intensified since the trailer was released, with a new report claiming the English actor is playing a Skrull named G’iah/Gloria Warner. Created by Robbie Thompson and Nico Henrichon for the 2019 limited series Meet the Skrulls, G’iah is a member of the Skrull invasion force who has second thoughts about his mission after seeing firsthand how ruthless his people can be. Marvel Studios has yet to officially confirm that Clarke is indeed portraying G’iah, which means this casting news should be treated as rumor for now.
Secret Invasion is set to arrive on Disney+ in 2023 and will run for six episodes.
