Oscar nominee Olivia Colman is in negotiations to join Secret Invasion, Marvel Studios' next series. The show uses the events of Marvel’s Captain Marvel movie as a launching pad and focuses on the ever-popular secret agent Nick Fury, played by a returning Samuel L. Jackson, and a shapeshifter from the alien race known as the Skrulls (Ben Mendelsohn, reprising his role from the feature). Plot details are being kept under wraps but an infiltration of Skrulls on Earth figures into the proceedings. It is unclear who Colman would play, but the cast also includes Kingsley Ben-Adir as the likely villain. No director has been selected yet but Kyle Bradstreet is writing and executive producing Invasion with production starting in the Fall in the UK and Europe. Colman won an Oscar for her work opposite Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz in 2018’s The Favourite and was nominated for the best supporting actress Academy Award for her role in the British drama The Father.
