A vicious mockery!

Marvel’s Secret Invasion hasn’t exactly been the best-received MCU project in recent years. A brand new episode of Honest Trailers takes aim at the Disney Plus series for its overuse of cliches and idiocy.

Honest Trailers has long been a beacon of mocking everything in Hollywood, the MCU included. Their latest episode focuses on Marvel’s most recent Disney Plus escapade in Secret Invasion, poking fun at the series’ lack of Avengers, the overuse of cliches, and the ridiculous climax featuring Emilia Clarke’s G’iah. The full video can be seen below:

Secret Invasion has been the target of internet mockery ever since it first debuted on Disney Plus. While being far from the first Marvel Studios project to be received negatively, it’s certainly the most prominent in its lambasting. While the series certainly has its fans, its unlikely they’ll be seeing a continuation anytime soon.

How Marvel is adapting Secret Invasion

Secret Invasion is based on the comic book storyline of the same name, which was created by Brian Michael Bendis and Leinil Francis Yu. The story revolves around a group of Skrulls, an alien race that has the ability to shape-shift and take on the appearance of anyone they want. The Skrulls have infiltrated Earth’s society and are secretly replacing key figures with their own kind in order to take over the planet.

The full Secret Invasion cast also includes Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, Kingsley Ben-Adir as Gravik, Emilia Clarke as G’iah, Don Cheadle as James “Rhodey” Rhodes and Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross. Olivia Colman, Dermot Mulroney, Killian Scott, Christopher McDonald, Carmen Ejogo and Charlayne Woodard are also on board in undisclosed roles.
