British acting queen Olivia Colman is set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it has been confirmed.
The Oscar winner will star alongside Don Cheadle and Samuel L. Jackson in the upcoming series Secret Invasion, due out next year.
In the series, Jackson reprises his character as Avengers boss Nick Fury while grappling with a faction of shapeshifting Skrulls that have been infiltrating Earth for years.
“This is my war, alone,” Jackson can be heard saying in a short trailer released at Disney’s D23 Expo on Saturday.
“I’m the last person that stands between them and what they really want.”
“You’re not in shape for this fight that’s ahead of us,” Colman tells him.
The trailer also featured appearances from Ben Mendelsohn as Skrull Talos, Don Cheadle as James “Rhodey” Rhodes, and Martin Freeman.
Secret Invasion will begin streaming in 2023.
