Everything about Secret Invasion is nothing short of exciting- from how big of a threat the Skrulls pose to the Earth & humanity, to how serious the whole series looks (from what we saw in the new trailer that dropped a few days back), not to mention the stellar casting for the show which includes many notable names.
One of the standout members in the ensemble include Olivia Colman, a brilliant English actor whose performances in The Crown & The Favourite have earned her a deserved spot in the MCU’s latest TV series in Phase 5. But who is the Peep Show actress really playing in the upcoming TV series?
Olivia Colman’s Secret Invasion Character Is Tied To Captain America
The release of the first trailer for Secret Invasion showed us a Marvel TV series that looks very promising, with the casting of big names like Olivia Colman and Emilia Clarke into the MCU.
Colman’s character, whose name is Sonya Falsworth, seems to be a good friend of Nick Fury since she warns Fury of his unpreparedness in fighting the Skrulls as shown in the trailer.
This still from the official trailer confirms Sonya Falsworth as a direct descendant of James Montgomery Falsworth, a British officer (he’s Union Jack in the comics, who also fought Skrulls). He fought alongside Captain America during the Second World War as part of the elite combat unit called Howling Commandos in Captain America: The First Avenger.
It has also been reported by an insider named Daniel Richtman that Sonya Falsworth is the head of MI13, a British intelligence agency concerned with various “strange” cases in the United Kingdom.
The last bit of detail does make sense considering that the Skrulls are an extraterrestrial entity, plus she also seems to be aiding Nick Fury in his fight against the Skrulls in the trailer. Will Jackon and Colman’s characters be successful in foiling the plans of The Skrulls? Or is she one herself? We can only know when the series comes out.
Fans Convinced That Sonya Falsworth Is A Gender-Swapped Union Jack
It’s been highly rumored that Olivia Colman’s character, despite being named Sonya Falsworth and being an old ally of Nick Fury, will be a gender-swapped version of the Union Jack, and fans are convinced.
Fans are absolutely ecstatic about Secret Invasion, and we all are. With the revelation of the surname of Colman’s character being Falsworth, fans are totally convinced that she’s going to be the new Union Jack and that’s only reasonable considering the first two Union Jack’s were also Falsworths. Here’s Twitter speculating-
Is it a gender swap character or will we see union jack??

While there is no official confirmation about Union Jack being in Secret Invasion, it would be quite an interesting sight to see the British superhero (the first of three Union Jack’s was raw skill and power) come to life in the TV series.
Secret Invasion will premiere in early 2023 with six episodes on Disney+.
