Emilia Clarke joins the dark side as a Skrull rebel in Secret Invasion. Her role in the Disney+ series was a mystery for a long time, but now we know who she is playing. And it’s not who you think.
- Emilia Clarke will play a supervillain in the upcoming Disney+ series Secret Invasion.
- Their actual role was secret for a long time. Now it is clear, she embodies the Skrull fighter G’iah.
- The relationship with her father Talos could steer the plot in a new direction.
Emilia Clarke is no stranger to playing powerful characters. She rose to fame as Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, and now she is ready to conquer the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as G’iah, a Skrull insurgent.
G’iah is the daughter of Talos (Ben Mendelsohn), the leader of the Skrulls, a shape-shifting alien race that has been at war with the Kree for centuries. But unlike her father, who has formed an alliance with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), G’iah is not interested in peace. She is a fierce warrior who fights for the liberation of her people from the Kree oppression.
G’iah’s role in Secret Invasion will be crucial for the plot of the series. As Clarke told Vanity Fair, she has a complicated relationship with her father, stemming from her childhood as a refugee. She also has a different vision for the future of the Skrulls, one that involves more violence and less diplomacy.
Interestingly, this is not G’iah’s first appearance in the MCU, as she was seen as a child in the Captain Marvel movie. However, her role in Secret Invasion is expected to be much more substantial and critical to the storyline.
Secret Invasion will premiere on Disney+ in June. It will explore the aftermath of the Skrull invasion of Earth, which was revealed in Spider-Man: Far From Home. The series will also feature other familiar faces from the MCU, such as Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), and Quake (Chloe Bennet).
