The MCU is known for keeping secrets, but most of those secrets have to do with keeping its large cast from giving away major plot points before each new Marvel movie comes out. Now that the new Marvel show is almost ready to start, we take a look at everything about Secret Invasion.
As part of Marvel’s Phase 5, the Marvel machine will bring another well-known comic book story to life. Secret Invasion will be available on the streaming service Disney Plus. If you like Samuel L. Jackson and his role as Nick Fury in the MCU, you’re in luck, because he’s going to be the main character in this TV show.
So, how much longer until the Secret Invasion release date? Who else will be in the science-fiction series? And just what happens in this story?
Secret Invasion Release Date
Disney hasn’t said exactly when Secret Invasion will come out on TV, but it will be in early 2023. The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special wrapped up MCU Phase 4, so the show could be the first Marvel product in Phase 5.
The release date for Ant-Man 3 is set for February 2023, and the second season of What If will come out in early 2023. Still, the nature of the story in Secret Invasion makes it a good way to start the next part of Marvel’s journey.
Who Could be in the Cast of Secret Invasion?
Secret Invasion has the following cast members:
- Samuel L. Jackson as Nick FuryBen Mendelsohn as Talos
- Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill
- Kingsley Ben-Adir as Gravik
- Emilia Clarke as Abigail Brand
- Olivia Colman as Sonya Falsworth
- Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross
- Don Cheadle as James “Rhodey” Rhodes
What will happen in Secret Invasion?
In the Secret Invasion storyline from the comic books, the Skrulls, who had been secretly replacing Earth’s most powerful heroes for years, attack our planet. We think the TV show will have a similar storyline.
In that part of the comic book, the Illuminati work together to fight the Skrulls after the Kree-Skrull war. But the heroes are captured, and fake Skrulls take their place on Earth. In the comics, some of these heroes are Iron Man, Mister Fantastic, Namor, Black Bolt, Doctor Strange, and Professor Charles Xavier from the X-Men.
We expect that the show on Disney Plus will have a different cast of characters. As with most MCU movies and TV shows, the source material will be changed so that Kevin Feige’s plans for the superhero movie franchise can be carried out.
One thing is certain, though: the Skrull will be everywhere on Earth, sneaking into its most important strongholds to cause total chaos. Nick Fury will have to stop the invasion because of what he knows about the Skrulls and how close he is to them.
