While the news is flooding in for the Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier we now have news on another series. Reports suggest that Kingsley Ben-Adir has been cast in the upcoming series Secret Invasion.
The report comes from Deadline who claim the star of One Night in Miami will be joining the cast as an unknown lead villain. Kingsley Ben-Adir has starred in several high profile movies and series including Noelle and Peaky Blinders.
Secret Invasion will see the return of Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn’s Talos. It will act as a kind of sequel to Captain Marvel and will feature a faction of the shape-shifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years. No other plot details have yet been revealed.
Currently, no release date has been set for the show but 2022 is looking most likely. WandaVision, which kicked off Disney+’s slate of Marvel shows, had an end-credit scene featuring a Skrull speaking with star Teyonah Parris’ character Monica Rambeau.
