Marvel’s Secret Invasion recently got its first trailer at Marvel’s D23 panel. The show is full of intrigue and mystery as it is about a race of shapeshifters trying to take over the earth.
The Skrulls share their history with Nick Fury. Captain Marvel has an obvious connection to them, as she is part of the Kree, the race the Skrulls have been at constant war with.
The release date of Marvel’s Secret Invasion is set for sometime in early 2023. Fans can rest assured that they will finally see perhaps the most pivotal miniseries from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
However, the trailer for the upcoming series was recently released.
Marvel’s Secret Invasion cast and streaming platform
The miniseries went into production in September 2021 and wrapped in April 2022. It was shot in several locations, including Halifax and London’s Bond Court and Greek Street.
Samuel L. Jackson returns for his role as the iconic binding force of the Avengers, Nick Fury. Cobie Smulders returns as Maria Hill, while Ben Mendelsohn takes up the mantle of Talos, the shape-shifting Skrull ally of Fury.
Others in the cast include Don Cheadle as War Machine/James “Rhodey” Rhodes, Martin Freeman as CIA agent Everett K. Ross, and Olivia Colman. Emilia Clarke is also joining the MCU in an undisclosed role, alongside Kingsley Ben-Adir.
However, there have been reports that Emilia Clarke is playing the role of Abigail Brand, an agent of the Sentient Weapon Observation and Response Division (SWORD). Born to an alien woman and a mutant man, Abigail has the ability to control flames to extremely hot temperatures. Her ability to burn through highly durable objects makes her quite a formidable threat.
Secret Invasion’s synopsis and trailer
Ironically, Marvel has kept the larger details of Secret Invasion under wraps. While we may get the show in the next three to six months, we still don’t have a release date for the miniseries.
D23 Secret Invasion the trailer reveals little about the upcoming Marvel offering, but gives away the idea that it’s going to be intense. This isn’t the first time Nick Fury has battled enemy infiltration. During the events of Captain America: The Winter SoldierCaptain America, Black Widow and Nick Fury managed to fight and dismantle HYDRA.
The synopsis of the show also gives very little detail. The official Marvel synopsis for the show basically outlines the threat of a Skrull invasion that has been building for the past few years.
Nick Fury takes it upon himself to fight it and even says he’s the only thing standing between the Skrulls and a full-blown invasion of the planet.
This will be the first time Jackson has played the role of Nick Fury since the events of Spider-Man: Far From Home. The former SHIELD director was last seen present on the space station right at the end of the film.
Fan speculation suggests that the film could be one more prologue The Marvelsin the same way as WandaVision set the stage for the events of Doctor Strange 2. Brie Larson returns as the alien superhero in Captain Marvel 2which will probably have a connection to the series.
This could be the last time we see Fury’s character. The gloomy nature of the trailer hints that things are about to get ugly. But with the potential addition of another mutant, and a massive extraterrestrial event on Earth, the MCU will expand significantly.
