Olivia Colman is headed to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the Academy Award winner is boarding the Disney Plus series Secret Invasion.
The cast of Secret Invasion continues to grow, with The Hollywood Reporter bringing word that Olivia Colman is in negotiations to join the highly-anticipated Marvel Studios project. Details regarding Colman’s Secret Invasion role are being kept under lock and key.
Overseen by Kyle Bradstreet, one of the writers and executive producers behind the critically-acclaimed USA Network series Mr. Robot, Secret Invasion is inspired by the Marvel comic book crossover event of the same name by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Leinil Francis Yu. The Disney Plus series is expected to begin filming later this year.
The Secret Invasion cast is led by Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, two of the main characters of the Captain Marvel movie. One Night in Miami… and High Fidelity star Kingsley Ben-Adir is also on board as a villain whose identity has yet to be revealed.
Here is the official synopsis for the latest Marvel Studios series, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier:

Directed by Kari Skogland from scripts written by showrunner Malcolm Spellman and Derek Kolstad, the series stars Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson / Falcon, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes / The Winter Soldier, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter, Daniel Brühl as Baron Helmut Zemo, and Wyatt Russell as John Walker / U.S. Agent.
