Why Fans Dislike Emilia Clarke’s G’iah in Secret Invasion?

The final episode of Secret Invasion kept that big CGI fight sequence a secret until the very end, and Emilia Clarke’s G’iah became the most powerful Skrull to ever live. 

Despite that, fans have been complaining that Clarke didn’t contribute much to the story and her power-up scene could not make up for a weakly written character.

“If people don’t like something I’ve done or a choice the franchise I’m in has made, we’ve already done it. So there’s not much I can do,” Clarke said in a press interview.

“At least she was humble about it, instead of being too “defensive,” says blacklantern_negative_regime.

“Why attack her? Blame the writers, the director for making her too OP, when Feige literally told him to do a ‘fair game’ yet they did the opposite,” says fvckjmcr002.

“I don’t blame the actors and writers. I blame the owners of Disney, Marvel, and Hollywood, along with whoever owns them as a whole,” says back4redhood_.

“I don’t think people hate her character. They hate what’s been done to it and that’s not her fault,” says theaveragemoviecritic.

The Marvels, releasing on November 10, could explore the story further and bring Emilia Clarke to the main roster of heroes.
