Marvel's Secret Invasion has found its directors.
THR reports that Thomas Bezucha (Let Him Go) and Ali Selim (The Looming Tower) have been tapped to helm the upcoming Disney+ series, which will (loosely) adapt the Marvel Comics event series of the same name by Brian Michael Bendis.
This news comes on the heels of several major casting announcements, with Olivia Coleman (The Favorite, Tyrannosaur). Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones, Solo: A Star Wars Story) and Killian Scott (The Dublin Murders, Love/Hate) all signing on for undisclosed supporting roles.
Plot details are also under wraps, but we do know that Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn will reprise their Captain Marvel roles as Nick Fury and Talos, respectively. It's also been confirmed that the show will focus on "an infiltration of Skrulls on Earth" (no big surprises there).
One Night In Miami star Kingsley Ben-Adir will play the lead villain. We don't know who that'll be, but Dorrek VII, Emperor of the Skrull Empire, is a strong possibility.
Kyle Bradstreet (Mr. Robot) is writing and executive producing Secret Invasion, and production is expected to get underway in Europe later this year. It is unclear what the breakdown of episodes will be, but sources believe it could be three-three or four-two.
