It looks like Marvel Studios’ Secret Invasion has finally found its directors, as The Hollywood Reporter has just revealed that Let Him Go‘s Thomas Bezucha and The Looming Tower‘s Ali Selim will be directing their upcoming series. Plot details still remain under wraps, but they will work alongside Mr. Robot‘s Kyle Bradstreet, who will act as head writer and executive producer of the show. It will see the return of Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn as their iconic MCU roles of Nick Fury and Talos. The Disney+ series has already expanded its cast with Damnation‘s Killian Scott, The Crown’s Olivia Colman, One Night in Miami‘s Kingsley Ben-Adir, and Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke.
The series will most likely explore the invasion of Skrulls on Earth. Spider-Man: Far From Home teased that they are living normal lives on the planet, which might explore the way we see foreigners. While we assumed they might focus more on the Kree, it seems likely that they want to explore the moral dilemma of some Skrulls being evil while others are good. It would add an interesting layer of complexity after they were showcased as a surprisingly good force of nature in Captain Marvel. Hopefully, we will get more information on the series as we near the production start. It’ll be interesting to see who we can trust and who we can’t, especially with it potentially tying into the newly titled The Marvels film.
