According to new information from The Illuminerdi, Carmen Ejogo (‘True Detective’) is in talks to participate in the ambitious and long-awaited ‘Secret Invasion’ of Marvel and Disney +.
Although few details have been revealed, the news indicates that Ejogo could bring to life a character who comes “from the same world” as Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), while also being a “powerful leader with an affection for the world. ‘spying”. .
Remember that the work will be shot under the name ‘Jambalaya’. We do not yet know if the title refers to themes from the series, but we do know that it is the name of a dish with African and European influences.
No other information was revealed.
Also among the cast are Ben Mendelsohn, Emilia Clarke, Olivia Colman and Kingsley Ben-Adir and Christopher McDonald.
Remember that Thomas Bezucha and Ali Selim were hired to take charge of the episodes. Bezucha is best known for directing the dramas “Back to Paradise” (2018) and “Let it go”; Selim, in turn, was responsible for the drama miniseries “The Looming Tower” in 2018, as well as overseeing some episodes of “Criminal Minds” and “Manhunt”.
In an interview with Collider, Marvel President Kevin Feige explained why he decided to turn the work into a series rather than a movie.
“We are interested in the political paranoid aspect of Secret Invasion and are really showing off the space with our stars Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn, two incredible actors that you will want to have in any show, and we are very fortunate to have a ‘have them with us. That’s sort of the main focus of this and of course it’s going to connect with other things and Skrulls in a way you’ve never seen before. But we wanted to do this as a series because it would allow us to do something different than what we’ve done before. “
It’ll be exciting to see this huge comic book event unfold over six episodes, rather than being reduced to a two-hour movie.
“Just as all humans are not bad, not all humans are good. I think the Skrulls probably have the same range of morals among them, ”Kevin Feige said in an interview with ComicBook in 2019.“ When they get the chance to use their abilities, it’s probably very tempting. It’s interesting to present this concept and see where it takes us.
