Marvel Studios has been infamous for trying to keep a tight-lip on all their projects. Still, sometimes things find their way online. There are bigger rumors, such as Black Panther: Wakanda Forever to introduce the world to Namor the Sub-Mariner, or the small tidbit here and there. We’ve wondered if they’d start tightening up security on their projects, and it seems they are very adamant about keeping Secret Invasion as much of a secret as they can.
We learned back in March that Kingsley Ben-Adir will play a villainous role in the Disney+ series. Of course, people have been using the chance to find out who exactly he is playing. At the 2021 GQ Men of the Year awards, he was interviewed on the series but gave a rather interesting answer. It seems that Marvel Studios is training their actors to keep a tight lip on their projects.
We’re figuring it out at the moment. They’ve been training us not to talk for like six months. As soon as you asked that, I’ve just got in my head this Marvel robot saying, ‘Don’t talk, don’t say anything, say nothing, lie.’ So I don’t know.Kingsley Ben-Adir
There’s a good chance this is also reactionary by Marvel Studios due to some actors openly talking about spoilers. Alfred Molina famously outright confirmed his return to Spider-Man: No Way Home back in April, which most likely also sparked his appearance in the film’s first trailer. There was also the time Russel Crowe openly talked about playing Zeus in Thor: Love and Thunder without a care in the world. A project with the title Secret Invasion might require an extra amount of secrecy to ensure it releases spoiler-free.
