A new synopsis for the upcoming MCU Disney Plus series Secret Invasion has revealed that the show will be a Marvel “crossover event.”
Secret Invasion is based on the Marvel comic event of the same name, which followed a Skrull infiltration of Earth, with key figures being replaced by the shapeshifting aliens. The series has already been confirmed to feature Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, but now it sounds like other familiar faces will be returning too.
Apparently following in the footsteps of the original comic event, the MCU’s Secret Invasion is set to stage a crossover between Marvel properties.
Skrulls Return For ‘Secret Invasion’
The new description for Secret Invasion on Disney’s website refers to the upcoming show as a “crossover event series” and confirms it “showcases a faction of shape-shifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years.”
While Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn, who played Talos in Captain Marvel, are the only cast members confirmed to return so far, Secret Invasion‘s premise makes it a prime candidate for an MCU-wide crossover. The series will likely see various MCU heroes banding together, while contending with the constant fear that any one of them could be a Skrull.
While the Skrulls introduced in Captain Marvel were revealed to be the victims of Kree imperialism, having lost their homeworld to the Kree, it is possible that the Kree faction introduced in Secret Invasion will be less interested in a peaceful existence.
Whether Ben Mendelsohn’s Talos will remain loyal to Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury or will ally himself with the Skrulls invading Earth is not yet clear. It is also not known how many MCU characters will be involved in the crossover series. Don Cheadle’s War Machine was recently confirmed to appear, though it sounds possible he’ll be bringing a few other Avengers with him.
Here is Disney’s new synopsis for Secret Invasion:
“Secret Invasion” is a newly announced series heading to Disney+ that stars Samuel L. 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 is created by Kyle Bradstreet and stars Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Cobie Smulders, Martin Freeman, Don Cheadle, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, Killian Scott, Christopher McDonald, and Carmen Ejogo.
