"The crossover comic event series showcases a faction of shape-shifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years," Disney+ says about the series, noting that Jackson and Mendelsohn's characters first crossed paths in Captain Marvel.

Smulders has appeared as Hill in numerous other Marvel films, including Spider-Man: Far From Home, Captain America: Civil War and the Avengers movies. The news comes after Smulders recently received praise for her role as conservative television host Ann Coulter in American Crime Story: Impeachment.

"I just think what they're doing right now is so exciting and so cool, and so on the cutting edge of it. I feel like they're like the Apple of this world," she said of Marvel.

"To be part of that family feels like, 'Oh my god, I'm in the cool kid crowd. That's so cool.' Honestly speaking, the people that are making this are what pushed me over the line to really wanting to do it," Clarke continued. "I just think that everyone's heart and heads are in the right place with this one."
