Secret Invasion: Killian Scott in talks to join Marvel Disney+ series
April 30, 2021 by: Gaius Bolling
Killian Scott has become the latest actor to enter negotiations to join Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn in Marvel's Secret Invasion, an upcoming Disney+ series.
Secret Invasion will find Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn reprising their MCU characters Nick Fury and the Skrull Talos. The two first met in Captain Marvel and the series will showcase a faction of the shape-shifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years. Directors are currently being lined up for the series while Kyle Bradstreet, who worked on the critically acclaimed cyber-thriller series Mr. Robot, will be writing and executing producing the project. As for shooting locations, "The Hollywood Reporter" indicates that shooting should be set for the fall in the U.K. and Europe.
Exact plot details are being kept under wraps so it has not been made clear what role Scott would be playing if he joins the series. This is in line with the other recent casting announcements for the show. Olivia Colman recently entered talks to join the series and that was soon followed by the news that Emilia Clarke was in negotiations to enter the cast, but both of their roles are also being kept under wraps. Kingsley Ben-Adir is also on board and reports indicate that he's likely playing the villain of the series.
From what I can gather, Killian Scott isn't too well-known in the States but he's certainly on his way. He was recently set as a lead opposite Courtney B. Vance in AMC's new courtroom drama series 61st Street. His other credits include the BBC/Starz series Dublin Murders and the series Damnation, C.B. Strike, and Ripper Street.
