For a while, when her name was revealed, fans were in the dark about what role she will play in Marvel’s Phase 5 first Disney+ series. Some were assuming that she is likely to play Abigail Brand, MCU’s first mutant and commander of S.W.O.R.D. But then it was reported that she will be playing a role of a Skrull named G’iah in the series.

The footage was revealed from the sets of Secret Invasion, in which the actress was shooting with someone wearing a grey motion-capture CGI suit. In the video, it appeared that the CGI character was choking out Clarke as she fights for her life on the ground below.

Both the trailer and footage confirm that the actress will be involved in quite a bit of action in Secret Invasion. As to whether she is going to be evil or not is still a mystery among many mysteries surrounding Secret Invasion.

The president of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige hinted that Skrulls have “a variety of moralities among them,” meaning that we never know what every Skrull is thinking.

Cobie Smulders, known for her role as Maria Hills, warned the audiences that Secret Invasion is a “darker” MCU story, where no one will ever know who’s a Skrull and who’s human.

So what kind of Skrull Clarke is going to be is shrouded in mystery. And due to paranoia surrounding the Skrulls, it probably won’t be fully known until the series’ conclusion.
