Secret invasion The third episode ended on a controversial note and with yet another shocking death. Given its nature as a gritty spy story, Casualties is a given, even if Marvel continues its most frustrating new habit. spoilers ahead.
In “Treason,” Jiah (Emilia Clarke) is murdered after double-crossing Secret invasions Big Bad, General Gravik (Kingsley Ben-Adir). Her death was supposed to be a detour, but seeing how little we knew about the character felt empty. Jiah isn’t the first female character to be sacrificed for shock value Secret invasionAnd she’s not the first character whose potential the series has squandered. Her death seems like a waste of the talented and famous Emilia Clarke.
As frustrating as “betrayal” felt, there’s a good chance Clarke will return in future episodes. If she appears again, it’s likely not as G’iah, but as a character fans have been anticipating since Clarke’s existence was first announced.
From the moment Clark joined the Secret invasion cast, theories circulated about her role. A popular suggestion — and briefly confirmed by revised casting announcements — was for Clarke to play Abigail Brand, a fan favorite of Joss Whedon and John Cassady. Amazing X-Men. Brand, a half-human, half-alien mutant known to be an agent of SWORD, frequently and reluctantly teams up with the X-Men, and plays a role in comics during the Skrull invasion.
Clarke was, of course, later confirmed as G’iah, daughter of Talos (Ben Mendelsohn), but that didn’t stop fans from suspecting a forgery. Now that Jiah is out of the picture, New fan theory He found a way to connect the two letters.
Secret invasion He established the idea of Skrull “shells”, humans who impersonate shapeshifting aliens. These humans are kept alive at Gravik’s compound, New Skrullos, and connected to machines that harvest their memories. Although Jiah herself may be dead, her shell is still very much alive…and it could be Abigail Brand.
Marvel originally stated that Clarke’s Secret invasion His role will be ongoing, with plenty of crossover potential in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. If Jiah – or Abigail – survives the events of Secret invasioncould appear in a future movie, eg Marvels Coque under the wrath.
Although SWORD only appeared briefly in the MCU, it has been replaced by another organization, SABER. This new counter-terrorism space network is mentioned in Secret invasionand will appear again in Marvels. Secret invasion could serve as SABER’s agent assets for Abigail, and Marvels She can continue her adventures.
Brand also shares some connective tissue with Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel. She worked under Danvers when the latter commanded Alpha Flight, a peacekeeping force that briefly sided with SWORD. It looks like SABER could be the MCU equivalent of the Alpha Force, which could make G’iah’s future role in the MCU more likely. Time will tell, but it would be a shame to waste Emilia Clarke’s talents, and this theory is a compelling way to bring her back into the fold.
