Emilia Clarke would be playing at the Abigail Brand
Trying to be so secretive, like the Secret Invasion itself, marvel Studios inevitably slips up and spoils a major mystery that they’ve been trying to keep under wraps. It’s safe to say everybody saw this coming,
and everybody assumed that Emilia Clarke would be playing at the McGill brand. Well, Marvel Studios confirmed it accidentally.
Marvel Studios has been very secretive in revealing certain things. When it comes to Amelia Clark, they’ve been more than secretive. Honestly crazy to think that at one point they denied that she was ever involved with it,
considering we literally had set photos. But, hey, we’re here now. We had the trailer. We saw her in the trailer. And then, thanks to Marvel’s official Tanner Page tenor page, what the hell? What are all these new things that pop up? Anyways, though? They uploaded an official gift, and it’s Amelia Clark saying,
it’s the beginning now. Okay, that’s all right. But here’s the thing they titled it. It’s the beginning. Abigailbrand gift. Now, looking back on it, literally, the moment we found out she was joining Marvel Studios, everybody was like, oh, yeah, she’s going to be Abigail. And, yeah, it kind of makes sense,
right? There’s nothing really weird about this. Again, Abigail has been in the comics for, well, actually almost two decades now. By the time this hits, it will
be almost two decades. It might actually be right on point. So it’s going to be interesting to see what they do with the character and how they kind of use here
. She did originally appear in the Astonishing Xmen, so I wonder if there was some sort of holdup in introducing the character because of that.
And she was created by Joss Whedon in his run. So it’s going to be interesting to see how they position her history with Sword, with Shield. And also how she’s connected to the ExGen,
because there is that connection there because if I’m remembering correctly, her father was an alien. Her mom passed along the Ex gene to her. It’s been a while since I read Jocelyn and stuff, and I believe that’s what happens in that run. So obviously we’re going to have another, I guess, mutant in this, or maybe not.
I don’t know how they’re going to do it. But either way, though, she’s confirmed to be Abigail’s brand. So we’ll see when Marvel Studios officially comes out and confirms this, and we’ll see what
they do with the character and how she’s going to connect to the bigger picture.
