Do you know the people you trust? Nick Fury learns about betrayal and being wary of who to trust in the upcoming Disney+ series, Secret Invasion.
Secret Invasion was first released as a comic book in 2008. It tells the story of how the Skrulls have slowly invaded the Earth because their home has been destroyed by Galactus. Through the years, the Skrulls have kidnapped and impersonated superheroes and politicians for them to take over the world.
As the title suggests, the Earth was left unprepared for the attack, as SHIELD is riddled with internal conflict and the superheroes try their best to distinguish who is a friend and who is a foe (who is Skrull?). Against all odds, the Avengers win but now without paying a high price.
The events in Secret Invasion altered the course of the Marvel Universe in the years to come.
As we wait for the premiere of the series, here is everything we know so far about the Marvel series.
Secret Invasion Release Date: When Will the Marvel Movie Come Out?
There is no official release date for Secret Invasion.
Secret Invasion has been in development since 2019, but the series has faced many long delays brought about by the pandemic. Production of the series began in September 2021, which means that we may finally watch the series sometime in late 2022.
During their 2022 lineup release, The Cosmic Circus caught a posting on the Marvel Japan site which included the Secret Invasion and What If…? Season 2. The site soon edited the post and removed Secret Invasion and What If…? Season 2 from the list, but this raised fans' hope that the show will premiers this year.
However, since there are no confirmed release dates yet, we can only cross our fingers and hope for the best.
Secret Invasion Cast: Who are the Actors Included in the Marvel Series?
The only cast with confirmed characters in the series is Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn. Samuel L. Jackson will return to play his role as Nick Fury. Ben Mendelsohn will also reprise his role as Talos.
The other actors joining the series are Olivia Colman, Killian Scott, and Christopher McDonald. The most recent addition to the cast is Martin Freeman. Cobie Smulders will also return as Maria Hill.
Secret Invasion Crew: Who are the Creatives Behind the Scenes?
Thomas Bezucha and Ali Selim will be directing the series, and Kyle Bradstreet will be writing some of the episodes.
Secret Invasion Plot: What Will be the Plot of the Marvel Series?
Secret Invasion will have a total of six episodes. Producer Kevin Feige says that Secret Invasion will explore the events during the Blip, the period after Thanos made the snap.
We catch our first glimpse of the series during the post-credit scenes of Spider-Man: Far From Home, which places the series after the Avengers: Endgame. There is no confirmed plot for the series yet. Still, based on what we know, the events in Secret Invasion may drastically shift the stories of the next superhero shows because we may soon learn that several Marvel heroes are actually Skrulls.
If the Secret Invasion follows the plot of the Marvel comic book, Fury will still be the one who saves the day. After everyone believes he was dead and that all hope is gone because SHIELD no longer existed, thanks to everything that happened in The Winter Soldier, Fury returns to lead our last defense against the aliens invading the Earth.
However, if we consider the post-credit scenes in the Spider-Man: Far From Home, we may see Fury establishing SWORD, the space-oriented sister agency of SHIELD. The MCU hasn’t been following the comic books by word for word, so there is a chance that we will see a different alien race invading the Earth altogether.
Secret Invasion Trailer: Is There a Trailer for the Series?
There is currently no trailer for Secret Invasion. In the meantime, you can rewatch the trailer for Captain Marvel to refresh the history of Nick Fury and the Skrulls. Here is the link to the trailer:
Where to Watch Secret Invasion: Where Can I Watch the Marvel Series?
You can watch Secret Invasion on Disney+ once the series has been released. There are also more Marvel shows on this streaming service.
Secret Invasion will impact the Marvel Cinematic Universe, altering how we view the Skrulls, and even potentially the Skrees, because of how intertwined their stories are. Needless to say, Secret Invasion has us on the edge of our seats, waiting for Fury to remind us why he is the one and only leader of SHIELD.
