The Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand, with quite a few productions going simultaneously worldwide. Still, all eyes are on the upcoming release of Shang-Chi and the Legends of the Ten Rings, as they just recently held a red carpet event. Luckily, FabTV got a chance to chat with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige on how he feels about the success of their franchise.
He highlighted that his focus always remains on the future, in which he discussed the various projects currently filming, which included Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and The Marvels. What stood out was that he confirmed that Secret Invasion hasn’t started production yet, as he states they are:
Getting ready to start production on our Secret Invasion series.
It’s quite a surprise it hasn’t already been in production. Samuel L. Jackson already hinted at his return as Nick Fury in The Marvels, which he wasn’t confirmed for yet. In a way, this helps structure the upcoming production schedule, as he’ll shoot his scenes for the film first before joining the series. It’s uncertain if Ben Mendelsohn’s Talos will also appear in the sequel, but he is confirmed for the Disney+ series.
Given the character’s history, it seems likely, and they might re-use elements from the film in the spin-off series to cut down on production costs. It’s interesting to see if the series ends up taking place after the events of the film, or they might even set it up like Agents of SHIELD did with Captain America: Winter Soldier. So, the events of the film might take place during the season’s complete runtime.
