    I thought you were allowed to drop a single F-Bomb and still retain PG13 rating.

    You can, but we all know Ramsay isn't going to be satisfied with just one.

    Sorry, bro. You forgot to include the headline.

    One Night in Miami Star Kingsley Ben-Adir Cast as the Lead Villain in SECRET INVASION

    One Night In Miami
    star Kingsley Ben-Adir will play a lead opposite Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn in Secret Invasion, the upcoming Marvel series for Disney+, Deadline has learned.

    In Secret Invasion, Jackson and Mendelsohn reprise their MCU characters Nick Fury and the Skrull Talos, respectively, who first met in Captain Marvel. The crossover comic event series showcases a faction of shape-shifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years. Deadline hears Ben-Adir will play a lead villain on the show. Marvel Studio declined comment.

    Ben-Adir is coming off his starring role as Malcolm X in the Regina King-directed One Night In Miami, which has earned him awards recognition. He also recently played Barack Obama on Showtime’s The Comey Rule. Ben-Adir’s TV series credits also include The OA, Peaky Blinders and High Fidelity.

    Academy Award-Winning Actress Olivia Colman Joins the Cast of Marvel Studios' SECRET INVASION

    [​IMG]

    Oscar nominee Olivia Colman is heading into the Marvel Universe. Colman, who is nominated for the best supporting actress Academy Award for her role in the British drama The Father, is in negotiations to join Secret Invasion, Marvel Studios' next series.

    The show uses the events of Marvel’s Captain Marvel movie as a launching pad and focuses on the ever-popular secret agent Nick Fury, played by a returning Samuel L. Jackson, and a shapeshifter from the alien race known as the Skrulls (Ben Mendelsohn, reprising his role from the feature).

    Plot details are being kept under wraps but an infiltration of Skrulls on Earth figures into the proceedings. It is unclear who Colman would play. The cast also includes One Night in Miami breakout Kingsley Ben-Adir as the likely villain.

    Directors are being lined up for the job and Kyle Bradstreet, who worked on the acclaimed cyber thriller series Mr. Robot, is writing and executive producing Invasion.

    Colman won an Oscar for her work opposite Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz in 2018’s The Favourite in a part that landed her numerous other plaudits. Her regal work as Queen Elizabeth II in Netflix’s The Crown also earned her considerable raves. She will next be heard in Sony Pictures Animation’s The Mitchells vs the Machines. She is one of the voicestars in the Phil Lord-Chris Miller-produced feature set in a robot apocalypse.

    She was funny in Hot Fuzz:) There's a scene where she's a village fete with the rest of the Sandford coppers. She looks at a pig being roasted on a spit and says,

    "That's me after two pints"<Lmaoo><45>

    Wouldn't be surprised if she's the Skrull Queen.

    Game of Thrones Star Emilia Clarke Joins the Cast of Marvel Studios' SECRET INVASION

    [​IMG]

    Marvel's upcoming Secret Invasion is heating up, with Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke in talks to join the Disney+ series. Marvel Studios could not be reached for comment on the casting, which was first reported by Variety.

    Secret Invasion, which gets its name from the 2008 event comic book event story, stars Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Ben Medelsohn, reprising his Captain Marvel role as the shape-shifting Skrull Talos. Oscar winner Olivia Colman is also among the cast. Kyle Bradstreet, known for Mr. Robot, is writing and executive producing Secret Invasion.

    In the comics, Secret Invasion revealed that Skrulls had infiltrated human society, and that some of Earth's superheroes had been replaced by Skrulls years earlier.

    Clarke, who earned four Emmy nominations for her Game of Thrones work as Daenerys Targaryen, is the latest Thrones alum to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Both Richard Madden and Kit Harington have roles in the upcoming Eternals film.

    The casting comes as Marvel prepares to unveil Friday's finale of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, its second Disney+ series following WandaVision. It has Loki launching June 11 on Disney+ and Black Widow hitting theaters and Disney+ July 9.

    Clarke already has experience in the Disney family with her work in Solo: A Star Wars Story. She last appeared in a leading role in 2019's Last Christmas.
