Damnation Actor Killian Scott in Talks to Join Emilia Clarke in Marvel's Secret Invasion

Damnation and Dublin Murders' actor Killian Scott is currently negotiating to possibly join Game of Thrones actress in the cast of Marvel's Secret Invasion Disney+ series. The show is currently under development. If the negotiation pushes through, Scott will also join Ben Mendelsohn and Samuel L. Jackson who are both set to reprise their roles in the MCU as Skrull Talos and Nick Fury respectively. The two characters first met in Captain Marvel.

Deadline reported the new casting update for the series. The cast for Secret Invasion is also set to have Kinglsey Ben-Adir as a possible villain, as well as Olivia Colman. Further plot details for the film are currently under wraps. It is unclear what role Scott would have in the series. Marvel has declined to comment on this new development.

The story for Secret Invasion is about the subversive and long-term invasion of the Skrulls on Earth. The Skrulls are a group of alien shapeshifters. They have secretly replaced multiple superheroes within the Marvel Universe with impostors over a period of years. It happened before the overt invasion took place. As for why the Skrulls took interest in the Earth is because the planet is located on the interstellar crossroads which is why it was viewed as a prime territory by various alien cultures which include the Skrulls.

In December 2020, a Disney+ series based on the storyline was confirmed to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
