Premiere: TBD 2023
One of Marvel Comics most intense and wide-ranging comic book crossover events is coming to the MCU in 2022 with Secret Invasion! Announced at Disney’s 2020 Investor Day, Secret Invasion will focus on a faction of less-than-friendly Skrulls who have spent years infiltrating Earth and are now ready to take over.
Kyle Bradstreet will develop and oversee the project as Samuel L. Jackson returns as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn reprises his role as Talos. In April 2021 Olivia Colman was confirmed to be in negotiations to join the series, and just a couple of days later we learned that Emilia Clarke was also talks to join the cast in an undisclosed role. Kingsley Ben-Adir and Killian Scott are also expected to have their names added to the cast list.
The following month the show found its directors in Thomas Bezucha and Ali Selim, and also got Christopher McDonald on board portraying a newly created character. Samuel L. Jackson confirmed production had started by October 2021.
Notably absent from the announcement cast list, Cobie Smulders was confirmed to be reprising her Maria Hill role per a trade report in early December 2021. A few months into 2022 Samuel L. Jackson accidentally confirmed that Martin Freeman‘s Everett Ross would be making an appearance in the show.
Colman‘s role was reported to be that of Union Jack with her character’s surname (Fallsworth) being shared by two of the comics’ iterations of the character. Clarke‘s character, initially undisclosed, was confirmed to be that of Abigail Brand.
