A big secret has been revealed at D23 Expo 2022, as fans at the Disney event had a chance to see footage from the upcoming Marvel Studios miniseries Secret Invasion, teasing just what to expect from the sneakiest alien attack the MCU has seen yet.
Take a look:
Announced in 2020, Secret Invasion stars Jackson alongside a host of familiar faces to the Marvel faithful, including Ben Mendelsohn (Tales), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Martin Freeman (Everett Ross), and Don Cheadle as James Rhodes. Olivia Coleman, Emilia Clarke, and Dermot Mulroney will also appear. Kyle Bradstreet (Mr. Robot) is the lead writer and executive producer for the series.
From the looks of the trailer, it’s expected to follow the basic arc of the 2008 comic book of the same name by Brian Michael Bendis and Lenil Francis You, where heroes on Earth slowly become aware that the shapeshifting Skrulls have been quietly replacing humanity for reasons unknown. Earlier this year, series lead Samuel L. Jackson teased that the series is “giving me an opportunity to explore something other than the badassery of who Nick Fury is.”
Secret Invasion will run six episodes, and will launch on Disney+ in early 2023.
