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.

Secret Invasion in the 2022 SDCC

During the 2022 San Diego Comic-Con, Kevin Feige announced that Secret Invasion would be streaming on Disney+ by Spring 2023.

Secret Invasion Production

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.

Marvel Japan

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.

Nick Fury and Talos

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.

We got a cute first look at Nick Fury's costume in the movie through a Funko. This collectible may be the beginning of more promotional materials coming out for Secret Invasion.

The Secret Invasion Cast

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.

Kingsley Ben-Adir will reportedly play a villain in the series.

Secret Invasion Crew: Who are the Creatives Behind the Scenes?

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 in 2022 San Diego Comic-Con

During the 2022 SDCC, Colbie Smulders (who plays Maria Hill in the series) talked about Secret Invasion.

This is a darker show. We're going to get deeper into the characters. We're going to see them in new ways, and it's going to be an exciting thriller, and you're never going to know who people are. Are they a Skrull? Are they a human? It's going to be a bit of a guessing game.

Secret Invasion Disney+ Synopsis

Disney+ released a synopsis for Secret Invasion on its site, teasing Secret Invasion as a big crossover event series for the MCU.

Jackson as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn as the Skrull Talos—characters who first met in “Captain Marvel.” The crossover event series showcases a faction of shape-shifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years.

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.
