Game of Thrones stars invade Marvel! After Sophie Turner (X-Men) and Maisie Williams (The New Mutants), Peter Dinklage (Avengers Infinity War) or even Kit Harington and Richard Madden (Marvel’s Eternals), it is now the khaleesi in person Emilia Clarke who joins the universe of superheroes!
The 34-year-old actress was indeed announced to the cast of Secret Invasion, the new series from Disney + Marvel studios which will soon be filming; if the role played by Emilia Clarke remains secret, the latter nevertheless expressed her enthusiasm during an interview with our American colleagues from the site ComicBook.com.
What they are doing is so exciting and cool. (…) Being part of this big family gives me the impression of being in the team of cool people, it’s so cool. In all fairness, the team on this show pushes so hard to give it all that it’s the reason I agreed to do it.
Newcomer to the world of superheroes, Emilia Clarke – who defines herself as a big fan of fantasy novels – also confided to having grown up with the adventures of Superman and Spider-Man. “Spider-Man was the first orign-story I read as a child, and I remember realizing that the story is more than what I read.”
Recall that the main roles of the series Secret Invasion will be held by Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn, already seen in the cast of the movie Captain Marvel; the cast will also consist of Kingsley Ben-Adir (Watchmen) and Olivia Colman (The Crown).
