With “Secret Invasion” a new series from the Marvel universe awaits us soon on the Disney + streaming service. The superhero series stars Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn as Skrull Talos. The plot revolves around the infiltration of the earth by aliens.
Secret Invasion: Release date
An exact start date has not yet been given. You can assume that “Secret Invasion” will be released in 2022 or 2023. Presumably, the start will be adapted to the release of “Captain Marvel 2”, where the story could continue.
Secret Invasion: Cast
Two actors from the cast are already known. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has confirmed that you will see Samuel L. Jackson again as Nick Fury. Ben Mendelsohn is also on board in the role of Talos. The Skrull, a shape-shifting alien, made his first appearance in the blockbuster “Captain Marvel”.
“Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke has also been officially confirmed for “Secret Invasion”. The role played by the British actress is still unclear. While Clarke, Jackson, and Mendelsohn have been confirmed, Oscar winner Olivia Colman (“The Favorite”) is still in negotiations. However, these are rumors.
Kingsley Ben-Adir will play one of the main villains in the MCU series. There are currently no further details about the figure. And so the newcomer could embody a renegade Skrull, Kree, or a human villain.
Secret Invasion: Plot
Nick Fury and Talos have already been confirmed as protagonists. Talos belongs to the alien species of the Skrull, who can change their shape at will and imitate people – they don’t stop at the heroes of the MCU either. They put their skills to the test in ” Captain Marvel “.
The series is based on the comic book series of the same name from 2008. There it turns out that numerous earth dwellers and in particular the Avengers have been embodied by Skrull invaders for years and the real earth-dwellers have been kidnapped. Marvel boss Kevin Feige explains, however, that the comic plot contains even more superheroes than “Avengers: Endgame”.
The series will therefore approach the story on a smaller scale. Above all, the mood of the comics, which rely on paranoia, should be picked up. The series should also serve to use the full potential of the two talented leading actors.
Nevertheless, it could turn out in the series that several Marvel heroes already have a doppelganger. So it is quite possible that Tony Stark did not sacrifice himself, but a Skrull copy. That would mean that Iron Man would appear in “Armor Wars”.
The entire Marvel film universe could be turned upside down. In the style of “Marvel’s What if …?”, The Skrull storyline enables a reunion with Tony Stark or Steve Rogers!
