So we’re not even at the tail end of the news week yet it’s already so bonkers. Just a day after it was announced that Olivia Colman was in talks to join Secret Invasion, Variety is now reporting that Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has signed on to star in the show. This show is getting stacked with A-list talent!
If I’m not mistaken, Clarke is the fourth major Thrones star to join the Marvel family, following Iwan Rheon, Richard Madden, and Kit Harrington. This is huge simply for her name alone. I’m definitely imagining her as an Abigail Brand-type if that role wasn’t already taken by Colman. If Colman’s Brand, then Clarke could very well play Queen Veranke. All in all, this show’s ensemble is shaping up to be a wild one.
