Secret Invasion was one of Marvel Comics largest scale line-wide events; however, according to Kevin Feige, the upcoming Marvel Studios Disney Plus streaming series won’t try to match the scope of the comics. In an interview with comicbook.com’s Brandon Davis, Feige set some expectations for what to expect from the newly announced series:
Well, there were more characters in the Secret Invasion comic series than there were in Endgame so, no,” Feige admits. “It’s not that but it very much is a showcase for Sam Jackson and Ben Mendelson and tapping into the paranoia elements of the Secret Invasion comic series that was great with the twists and turns that that took. So, that’s certainly our focus more than, ‘Can we cram in more characters than Endgame? like publishing?’
The marketing campaign for the comic series centered on a series of “Who Do You Trust?” ads, adding to the uncertainty of just which Marvel hero was a Skrull and which one wasn’t. It’s great to continue to hear that Feige’s plans aren’t to outdo Endgame in terms of scope, but rather to explore new pathways to deliver on some of the classic Marvel Comics stories.
