A Secret Invasion series set in the MCU is in the works for Disney Plus. But you may be wondering, what is Secret Invasion about? Well wonder no more…
Secret Invasion is a big marvel comic book crossover storyline. A story first hinted in the MCU via both Captain Marvel and Spider-Man: Far From Home.
The Secret Invasion Story Explained:
The Secret Invasion storyline follows the Skrulls secretly taking over the world.
Skrulls are an alien species capable of shapeshifting into anyone they desire.
They use this to pose as elite figures and several heroes in the universe without anyone knowing.
The Skrulls even pretended to be members of the Avengers, giving them an opportunity to take over.
They were able to take over due to the fragility of the Avengers after the death of Captain America. Bucky Barnes was also struggling to take on the role and other heroes were busy (Sounds familiar to current events in MCU).
All of this and more gave the Skrulls the opportunity to sneakily turn hero against hero and plot to take over.
Secret Invasion is a HUGE crossover event with all sorts of heroes such as Spider-Woman, Reed Richards, Wolverine and even the X-Men.
Whether the Secret Invasion series has as many characters is uncertain.
Secret Invasion Is Already Being Set Up In The MCU:
In Captain Marvel we’re introduced to a group of friendly Skrulls who Captain Marvel saves. Key Skrull characters include Talos and his wife Soren.
In Spider-Man: Far From Home, a post-credit scene revealed that Nick Fury and Maria Hill were actually Skrulls Talon and Soren throughout the entire movie.
They were filling in for Nick Fury as he works in space developing what seems to be SWORD, a space-based counterpart to SHIELD.
This leads us to think: If Skrulls are already disguised as Nick Fury and Maria Hill and no one noticed, who else could be a Skrull in the MCU?
While Talos and Soren are seemingly friendly Skrulls. We’re aware there are some not so friendly ones out there.
It’s likely to be revealed that Skrulls have been plotting to take over the MCU for a long time now.
Secret Invasion Cast:
The only stars yet confirmed to star in Secret Invasion are Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury and Ben Medelsohn as Talos.
However, during the announcement Feige went to the effort of describing the event as being one of the biggest crossover events in Marvel Comic history, so it’s fair to expect a LOT of Marvel heroes and villains will feature.
There is also a very good chance that the DisneyPlus Secret Invasion series will introduce new heroes.
Possibly even some of the Fantastic Four or X-Men, but that’s just a guess.
So there we have it, a Secret Invasion series is officially in development. Now we can only wait for more information to be released in the coming months.
