If you’re a fan of Marvel movies and series, you can’t wait to see ‘Secret Invasion’, one of the most ambitious bets of Marvel Studios and Disney+ for the year 2023. Based on the comic book of the same name by Brian Michael Bendis, the series will show how the Skrulls, an alien race capable of shape-shifting, have infiltrated various heroes and villains of the Marvel Cinematic Universe over the decades, threatening the safety of the planet.
The series will feature the return of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, the director of SHIELD who will discover the Skrull threat and will have to face it with the help of some allies. Among them will be Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, the Skrull leader we met in ‘Captain Marvel’, and Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, Fury’s right-hand woman.
But we will not only see familiar faces but also new luxury signings. Emilia Clarke, the Game of Thrones star, will join the cast as G’iah, a rebel Skrull who will play a key role in the plot. Also joining the cast will be Olivia Colman, Oscar winner for ‘The Favourite’, whose character is still unknown. Another actor joining the cast will be Kingsley Ben-Adir, who will play the series’ main villain.
‘Secret Invasion’ will premiere on June 21, 2023 on Disney+, and promises to be a spy thriller in the style of Cold War movies. ‘Secret Invasion’ will have six episodes and will be directed by Thomas Bezucha and Ali Selim. The creator and screenwriter will be Kyle Bradstreet, known for his work on ‘Mr. Robot’.
The series will be a key piece in understanding Phase 5 of the UCM, as it could completely change the history and relationships of the characters we know. In addition, it is expected to have connections with other Marvel movies and series, such as ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’, ‘Ant-Man 3’ or ‘The Fantastic Four’. Undoubtedly, a series not to be missed if we want to keep up with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
