Secret Invasion News, Rumors, Cast and Release Date

Nick Fury has always been a supporting character in the MCU, but finally he’s getting the spotlight in the upcoming MCU live-action series for Disney Plus, Secret Invasion.

Announced on Disney Investor Day alongside Ironheart and Armor Wars, this show will fit into Phase 4 and likely tie in with the overall story of the movies.

If you’d like to learn more about Secret Invasion, including who’s starring, what the plot is, and most importantly, when it’s coming out, read on. We also have a similar article for Loki Season 2 and a review of the debut episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

When is Secret Invasion coming out?

Secret Invasion was originally thought to be released in late 2022, following in the footsteps of Ms. Marvel, She Hulk and Moon Knight.

However, TV Line has reported that the series has been delayed to 2023, along with shows like Ironheart, Echo, and Loki Season 2. When we know more, we’ll update this article.

The cast has been spotted filming in Leeds. We don’t know yet if the show will feature this city, or if it’s a stand-in for somewhere else, like London.

How many episodes are there in Secret Invasion?

Kevin Feige confirmed to Collider that there will be six episodes, in line with other live-action MCU shows.

Who’s in the cast for Secret Invasion?

Of course, since this show revolves around Nick Fury, it wouldn’t be complete without the man himself, Samuel L. Jackson. Ben Mendelsohn will also reprise his role as Talos, as seen in Captain Marvel.

Cobie Smulders also returns to the MCU, returning as SHIELD agent, Maria Hill. She has appeared in several movies at this point, including The Avengers.

Deadline is reporting that Olivia Coleman is in talks to take an undisclosed role in the series. Kingsley Ben-Adir is also linked to a villain in the series.

Emilia Clarke, Killian Scott, Christopher McDonald and Carmen Ejogo also join the show, all in unnamed roles.

Behind the camera, the series is directed by Thomas Bezucha (Let Him Go) and Ali Selim (The Looming Tower). The scripts come from Kyle Bradstreet, best known for producing and writing for Mr. Robot.

What is the plot of Secret Invasion?

When we last saw Nick Fury in the MCU, it was in the post-credits scene for Spider-Man: Far From Home. He was aboard a spaceship carrying a slew of Skrulls – a shape-shifting alien race first introduced in Captain Marvel. Skrulls will play a big part in Secret Invasion.

In the comics, the Skrulls infiltrate the human race and pretend to be other humans, including taking the place of some of the Marvel Universe’s greatest heroes.

With Fury teaming up with Talos and the Skrulls, Marvel will have to tweak things a bit for the MCU, but expect the main plot lines to stay the same. That means there could be some great Marvel characters who have secretly been someone else all along…
