VARIETY Marvel has unveiled the official trailer for “Secret Invasion” out of the D23 Expo on Saturday. The series is slated for release on Disney+ in 2023.

Samuel L. Jackson will reprise his role as Nick Fury, Ben Mendelsohn will return as the Skrull warrior Talos, Don Cheadle is back as James “Rhodey” Rhodes, Cobie Smulders returns as Maria Hill, plus Emilia Clarke, Kingsley Ben-Adir and Olivia Colman also star. Kyle Bradstreet serves as executive producer and writer.

In the series, Fury returns to Earth and teams up with Talos to prevent a Skrull invasion. Hill has been calling Fury to help back on the planet, but this time he’s finally back to deal with the dangerous Skrull threat. In one scene, Talos faces down Ben-Adir’s character as other Skrulls in the room take on the same appearance as Ben-Adir.

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, attendees got an exclusive sneak peek of “Secret Invasion,” which featured clips of Colonel James Rupert “Rhodey” Rhodes — aka War Machine (Don Cheadle) — and Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman). Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige also revealed at Comic-Con that “Secret Invasion” and “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” (premiering Feb. 17, 2023) will mark the beginning of Phase 5 for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“Like Kevin [Feige] was saying, this is a darker show. It’s going to be an exciting thriller. You’re never going to know who people are — are they a Skrull or are they human,” Smulders explained during Marvel’s Hall H presentation.

In addition, Feige announced at Comic-Con that “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” (premiering Aug. 17 on Disney Plus) and “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” (premiering Nov. 11) will be the last two projects of Phase 4. Other projects in Phase 5 that will be released in 2023 include “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” “Echo,” “Loki” Season 2 and “The Marvels.”

“Secret Invasion” will stream on Disney Plus in spring 2023. Watch the full trailer below.

Foxtel’s Patrick Delany now says his eyebrow-raising remark was intended to convey how late he was to jump on the HBO fantasy series’ bandwagon.

HUFFPOST An Australian television company has apologized after its chief executive referred to actor Emilia Clarke as a “short, dumpy girl” at a premiere this week.

Foxtel CEO Patrick Delany made the eyebrow-raising remark before a screening of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” spinoff series, “House of the Dragon,” on Tuesday. According to Australian news outlet Crikey, Delany was describing how he was late to begin watching “Game of Thrones,” in which Clarke portrayed Daenerys Targaryen.

“I was like, ‘What’s this show with the short, dumpy girl walking into the fire?’” he reportedly said, referring to Daenerys.

The CEO’s apparent attempt at a joke, however, landed with a thud among the night’s attendees. “It felt like he was expecting us to laugh along,” one attendee told Crikey, “but people in the room were obviously shocked by it.”

Film critic Travis Johnson, who attended the premiere, echoed that sentiment.

By Wednesday, a Foxtel spokesperson issued a statement attempting to backpedal on Delany’s words.

“The aim was to convey that for him, ‘Games of Thrones’ was something very different for television in 2011 and that Emilia Clarke went from relatively unknown to one of the most recognized and most-loved actors in television and film,” the statement read, according to The Wrap. “On behalf of Mr. Delany, the Foxtel Group apologizes if his remarks were misunderstood and caused any offense.”

Clarke’s representatives did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for comment.

Clarke does not appear in “House of the Dragon,” which premieres next week on HBO. The 10-episode series is based on George R. R. Martin’s 2018 novel, “Fire & Blood,” and is set 300 years before “Game of Thrones.”

This is a short dumpy girl?

Okay, I will admit. She IS short. Or petite is the proper term. But Emilia Clarke is/was NOT dumpy. She is one of the most beautiful women alive.

The first look of Paul Feig’s latest reveals a serious note to the holiday rom-com and Emma Thompson doing an accent.

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Christmas came early on Tuesday night when the Last Christmas trailer dropped online, revealing some new plot details to Paul Feig’s holiday-themed romantic comedy starring Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding.

The Paul Feig-directed project sees Clarke star as Kate, a disillusioned retail worker and self-described “mess” working as an elf at a year-round Christmas shop under the management of an exacting boss played by Michelle Yeoh. “I have nicknamed her ‘Lazy the Elf’ because she appears never to work,” Yeoh says loudly to a group of visitors to the shop in the trailer. When Clarke begins to bump into Tom (Henry Golding), she starts to confide in him — but starts to wonder about who he is when he disappears for short bouts.

The screenplay, penned by Emma Thompson, who also stars in the film as Clarke’s heavily Eastern-accented mother, sees Clarke play a somewhat meta role as a woman who nearly died due to a condition that isn’t revealed in the trailer. Clarke revealed that she suffered two life-threatening brain aneurysms over the course of her time starring in Game of Thrones in a story for the New Yorker in March. “I was really sick and I nearly died. I don’t tell people because they get weird, but I don’t think you’ll get weird,” Clarke says in the trailer. “I’m just scared all the time.”

Serenading viewers will be Clarke, who at one point in the trailer begins spreading Christmas cheer by singing “Deck the Halls” in front of a homeless shelter, and the late George Michael, whose music will accompany the film, named after his 1984 Wham! hit.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter earlier this year, Feig said that he was attracted to Thompson’s Last Christmas screenplay because “it’s not necessarily about, ‘I’ve gotta find a husband, I’ve gotta find someone to complete my life,'” he says. “I much more like movies about people who have to straighten their own lives out, and then once they do, then the real prize at the end of the film is that you’ve actually fixed your life and put yourself in a better place.”

Last Christmas will release on Nov. 8.

VARIETY – Emilia Clarke may play one of the fiercest and most intense characters on television as Daenerys Targaryen on “Game of Thrones,” but it took a bit of silliness to help her land the job.

While presenting Clarke with the Britannia Awards for British Artist of the Year on Friday night at the British Academy Britannia Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, “GoT” co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss recalled her auditions for the role.

Even after showing HBO executives the pilot for “GoT,” Clarke was asked to audition again for the president of the network.

The meeting took place in “HBO’s corporate theater, which was large, dimly lit and empty except for us two and the president of HBO,” Weiss said. “We were smiling. He wasn’t. It was quite possibly the least inviting audition environment we had ever witnessed.”

After Clarke’s initial reading, said president remained poker faced.

“Emilia asked if there was anything else she could do to lighten the mood and David asked, ‘Can you dance?’ And without missing a beat, Emilia did the robot,” Weiss said. “She did it with commitment and she did it well…and even the president had no choice but to smile. She got the job 10 seconds after she left the room and the two of us ran to tell her before she left the building because letting her get on an 11-hour flight home without knowing seemed like cruel and unusual punishment.”

In her acceptance speech, Clarke suggested that Weiss and Benioff “deserve their own bravery award for hiring someone whose biggest job up until than was catering parties dressed as a Snow White.”
