Oscar winning actress Olivia Colman is heading to Marvel Cinematic Universe. The actress is in negotiations to join Secret Invasion which is one of Marvel’s many shows to premiere this year.
Secret invasion uses the events of Marvel’s Captain Marvel movie as the starting point. It focuses on the ever-popular secret Agent Nick Fury, played by Samuel L. Jackson. The show also focuses on a shapeshifter from the alien race known as the Skrulls. Further details of the Marvel series have naturally been kept under wraps.
However, an infiltration of Skrulls on Earth figures into the proceedings. It is still unclear what role would Olivia play in the Disney+ series. The cast also includes Kingsley Ben-Adir as the likely antagonist. Many directors are being lined up for the job and Kyle Bradstreet is writing and executive producing the show. He worked on the cyber thriller series, Mr. Robot.
Olivia has won an Oscar for her performance in 2018’s The Favourite. The movie also feature Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz. It was a part that landed her many other awards. Her recent role was playing the role of Queen Elizabeth II in Netflix’s The Crown. It also earned her a lot of appreciation.
The actress will be heard in Sony Pictures Animations The Mitchells vs The Machines. It is produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller and is set amid a robot apocalypse. Netflix received huge success scores with the fourth season of The Crown. According to a report, 29 million viewers tuned into the highly-anticipated season of the Netflix series. Although the streaming service has not revealed the official figures for the series, more people have tuned into the dramatized version of Prince Charles and Princess Diana.
Just under 29 million globally watched the drama in its first week of release from November 4; that’s 600,000 more than watched TV coverage in Britain of the royal wedding in 1981, reports The Sun.
