Emilia Clarke Would Love to Spend a Decade Acting in the MCU. Game of Thrones and Solo: A Star Wars Story actress Emilia Clarke is gearing up to make her Marvel Studios debut in the upcoming Disney+ series Secret Invasion. Clarke will star alongside Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Ben Mendelsohn (Talos), Kingsley Ben-Adir, Christopher McDonald, Olivia Colman, and Killian Scott in the new show, but Emilia says she would be “lucky” to get the chance at working with Marvel Studios for ten+ years like some of the original Avengers.
During a recent interview with THR Emilia shared, “I mean, I should be so lucky is what I’ll say to that,” she continued, “Everyone I know and everyone I’ve spoken to who is a part of the Marvel universe – and actors talk! Everyone has only the highest praise to offer. There’s a reason why actors stay in it. They’re so loved because they’re having loads of fun. So I’m down for that.”
Emilia is also rumored to return as Qi’ra in a ‘Solo’ spin-off series, potentially the Lando Star Wars show starring Donald Glover and Billy Dee Williams, for Disney+. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things Marvel!
