Thomas Bezucha And Ali Selim To Direct Marvel’s ‘Secret Invasion’

by Erik Amaya

Secret Invasion has found its directors.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Let Him Go‘s Thomas Bezucha and The Looming Tower‘s Ali Selim will helm the upcoming Marvel Studios series. Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn are set to star as Nick Fury and Telos, respectively. The program will follow their attempts to uncover an invasion of shapeshifting Skrulls across all facets of Earth society. It is still unclear, though, if this is the reason Fury was seen assembling an armada at the end of Spider-Man: Far From HomeKingsley Ben-Adir is also set to appear in role most presume will be antagonistic. Olivia Colman is also said to be talks to play a role in the series, as is Emilia Clarke. And as both are known to play royalty, it is easy to imagine either actor playing the Skrull Empress, although it remains to be seen if that is the case.

Additionally, Killian Scott is reportedly signed up for an as-yet unnamed role. When his name first emerged, we suggested his character may try to claim to be the “real” Tony Stark. Secret Invasion is that sort of story.

Mr. Robot‘s Kyle Bradstreet is the head writer and an executive producer with Bezucha and Selim serving as more traditional film directors per the current Marvel Studios model.

The program is expected to go into production later this year.
