SECRET INVASION: Carmen Ejogo Reportedly In Talks To Join The Cast Of Marvel's Disney+ Series

As Marvel's Secret Invasion continues to round out its already very impressive cast, a new report claims that Carmen Ejogo (Alien Covenant, Fantastic Beasts) is in advanced talks to join the ensemble...

The expanding cast of Marvel's Secret Invasion may be about to get even more impressive with the addition of Carmen Ejogo.

According to The Illuminerdi, the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them actress is in advanced talks to join the Disney+ series' ensemble. Though details on her role are sparse, Ejogo's character is said to be "from the same world as Sam Jackson’s Nick Fury," and is described as "a powerful leader with a spy feel."

This report 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.

Thomas Bezucha (Let Him Go) and Ali Selim (The Looming Tower) have been tapped to helm the upcoming miniseries, which will (loosely) adapt the Marvel Comics event series of the same name by Brian Michael Bendis.

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.
