We all know that Marvel Cinematic Universe brings shows and movies that come in all kinds of flavors from comedies to space adventures, and even heavy legal dramas. But the first trailer for Secret Invasion revealed at Disney’s D23 Expo showcases something entirely different.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige took to the stage to share a bevy of brand new announcements as the MCU dives further into Phase 4, 5, and 6 aka, The Multiverse Saga. This time we’re in the tense, war-time thriller mode now. Secret Invasion‘s trailer has us at the edge of our seats.
Marvel Cinematic Universe’s ninth original series Secret Invasion, stars Samuel L. Jackson who is back as Nick Fury. Cobie Smulders reprising her role as Maria Hill, and return of Martin Freeman, as Everett K. Ross.
The trailer shows us that James “Rhodey” Rhodes, a.k.a War Machine, will also appear in Secret Invasion. Ben Mendelsohn, who played Talos in Captain Marvel and in Spider-Man: Far from Home, will return as well. We also finally get to see Olivia Colman in action for the MCU and Don Cheadle reprising his longtime role as Colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes took to the stage to talk about Marvel Studios’ Secret Invasion.
Fans were shown a scene and the brand-new trailer from the crossover event series that showcases a faction of shapeshifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years.
We see how the shape-shifting aliens Skrulls seem to have infested much of the upper echelons of the major power centers of the world. Towards the end, Nick Fury says, “I’m the last person standing between them and what they really want.”
Secret Invasion is based on the Marvel Comics series of the same name. The book series is focused on a subversive, long-term invasion of Earth by the Skrulls, who have secretly replaced many superheroes in the Marvel Universe with impostors over a period of years. The series is expected to take a different but similar approach.
Created by Kyle Bradstreet, the series also stars Ben Mendelsohn and Kingsley Ben-Adir as the ‘lead villain’. Secret Invasion is scheduled to premiere in early 2023 and will consist of six episodes. It will be part of phase five of the MCU.
