Marvel Cinematic Universe keeps expanding its compelling universe with new characters, storylines, and baddies that continue to captivate fans worldwide. One such exciting addition to the MCU is none other than Emilia Clarke. The Game of Thrones star has been roped in by the MCU for an upcoming project, and fans can’t contain their excitement.
In today’s blog, we’ll take a closer look at Emilia Clarke’s role in the MCU, dive deep into her character and learn about the details of her plan to make her Marvel debut alongside Nick Fury, and other Marvel favorites.
The Game of Thrones icon, Emilia Clarke, is reportedly making her debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe alongside Samuel L. Jackson –who’s reprising his longtime role as Nick Fury- in the upcoming Disney+ series, Secret Invasion. The series, which is based on the popular comic book storyline of the same name, follows a group of shape-shifting aliens called the Skrulls as they attempt to infiltrate the largest governing bodies of Earth.
Now, as per sources, Clarke’s role in the upcoming Disney+ series is said to put her in the ranks of MCU’s most powerful villains. So who will Emilia Clarke be portraying in the series? As per reports, Clarke’s character will be a prominent Skrull villain that has not yet been introduced in the MCU.
Although it remains unclear which verified character Clarke’s role is based on, a fan theory suggests she may be portraying a Skrull queen named Veranke who leads the invasion of Earth. Veranke is known in the comics for being among the most cunning and dangerous threats to the Marvel Universe.
According to the comics, Veranke’s ultimate motive was to seize reign of Earth and rule it under her Skrull kingdom. The queen has the unique ability to transform herself into any person, mimicking their abilities, memories, and even their appearance to get past any defense. With her formidable powers and cool, calculated nature, Emilia Clarke seems to fit the bill seamlessly.
As for the character’s plan, the upcoming Secret Invasion adaptation might be the beginning of the skrulls’ grander plan to take over earth, which could be an epic event that sets up the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although details remain scarce, it’s undoubtedly clear that Emilia Clarke’s character will play no small role in this invasion.
With Emilia Clarke joining the MCU as a possibly dangerous villain, things are sure to heat up in the universe. It’s an exciting time for Marvel fans, and Emilia Clarke’s inclusion in the already star-studded cast of Secret Invasion is sure to be a highlight of the series. Until the series makes its debut, fans can only speculate about the popular Theory that Clarke will be playing Veranke, and until then, time will only tell what Skrull invasion Marvel has in store for us. It’s safe to say; the MCU continues to become more intriguing, and fans can’t wait for more.
