‘The Queen’ and ‘The Father’ actress Olivia Colman is currently in negotiations with Marvel to join the upcoming series ‘Secret Invasion’.
Colman, whose role is being kept tightly under wraps, would be joining ‘One Night in Miami’ star Kingsley Ben-Adir who is set to play the villain of the series. Ben Mendelsohn is reprising his role from the film.
Plot details are being kept under wraps but the series will follow on from the Skrulls story threads in ‘Captain Marvel’ and ‘Spider-Man: Far from Home’ and deal with the ever-popular secret agent Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and the shape-shifting alien race.

A director is yet to be found but Kyle Bradstreet (“Mr. Robot”) is writing and executive producing with shooting to begin this Fall in the UK and Europe.
Colman has been nominated for an Oscar for best-supporting actress for her role in Florian Zeller’s ‘The Father’ in which she stars opposite Anthony Hopkins.
She will next be heard in Sony Pictures Animation’s ‘The Mitchells vs the Machines’, the Phil Lord-Chris Miller-produced feature set amid a robot apocalypse.
