In case you missed it, Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke has joined Marvel’s Secret Invasion. We don’t know who she will play in the upcoming Disney+ show, but we do know what attracted her to the Marvel project:

“I just think what they’re doing right now is so exciting and so cool, and so on the cutting edge of it. I feel like they’re like the Apple of this world. To be part of that family feels like, ‘Oh my god, I’m in the cool kid crowd. That’s so cool.’ Honestly speaking, the people that are making this are what pushed me over the line to really wanting to do it. I just think that everyone’s heart and heads are in the right place with this one.”

Clarke continued:

“I grew up reading fantasy fiction, so I know that’s not the same as the actual comic book itself, but that was where my imagination lived. And so, then reading about superheroes for the first time, I’m pretty sure it was Superman that was my first ever. And Spider-Man, I kind of thought he was pretty cool. Spider-Man was the first origin story that I remember as a child reading and being like, ‘Oh wow, this is more than what’s on the page. This is a bigger world,’ and then being allowed into that.”

As we find out more of who Clarke will play, we will let you know. In the meantime, what do you think of Clarke being cast in the upcoming MCU show, which will see the return of Samuel L. Jackson as Nicky Fury and Ben Mendelson as Talos?
