Everything You Need To Know About Secret Invasion

Secret Invasion is here. The famous quote from Nick Fury, “Last time I trusted someone, I lost an eye,” is true. It’s a statement from Captain America: The Winter Soldier that was included to demonstrate how the former director of S.H.I.E.L.D. and spymaster prefers to keep even his closest associates at a distance (and then lost a lot of its coolness factor when we found out an alien cat clawed out his eye in Captain Marvel). That Fury has some fairly serious trust issues was probably the point, but those survival instincts could come in very handy in the upcoming Secret Invasion series.

Nick Fury seems to be a central character

The shape-shifting aliens that Fury and Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) helped in Captain Marvel years ago are the subject of Secret Invasion, one of the most enigmatic Disney+ projects to take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far. Fury, as played by Samuel L. Jackson once more, will return to Earth in Secret Invasion to uncover a plot being carried out by a group of rogue Skrulls. We finally have a pretty decent sense of what to expect from this entirely original foray into the MCU thanks to an exclusive trailer presented during Marvel’s spectacular panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2022 as well as some fresh information revealed by series co-star Cobie Smulders.

It appears that the series won’t be the buddy-cop comedy starring Fury and Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) that many viewers were undoubtedly expecting from the trailer and Smulders’ description, which surprised the audience in Hall H. Here is all we currently know about Marvel’s Secret Invasion, including the trailer itself, the anticipated release date, and the cast members. Secret Invasion’s official release date has not yet been announced, but Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel, did confirm that the Skrulls will start working on their grand scheme somewhere in the spring of 2023.

The Secret Invasion teaser trailer out in Comic-Con to closed viewing

Unfortunately, the Secret Invasion teaser was shown behind closed doors in Comic-Hall Con’s H and is not currently accessible to the general public, much like the Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 trailers. Fortunately, we at Collider were able to see it and can describe what was displayed.

The teaser begins with Nick Fury finally making his way back to Earth, this time sans that infamous eye patch and sporting a full gray beard. The next scene features Fury interacting with a wide range of faces, some of whom we have already seen. In addition to seeing Talos in human form, which merely resembles normal Ben Mendelsohn, we also catch unexpected glances of Martin Freeman and Don Cheadle in their respective roles as Agent Everett K. Ross and War Machine, respectively. We also get a sneak peek at the roles that will be played by Olivia Colman and Emilia Clarke, both of which have not yet been revealed.

The trailer looks darker than expected based on reports

Ultimately, the Secret Invasion trailer has a very grim tone—far harsher than anyone could have predicted. This appears to be marketed as a realistic spy espionage thriller with psychological horror and science fantasy themes. When she appeared on stage just before the trailer premiered, Cobie Smulders reiterated this feeling and said the following:

“This is a darker show. We’re going to get deeper into the characters. We’re going to see them in new ways, and it’s going to be an exciting thriller, and you’re never going to know who people are. Are they a Skrull? Are they a human? It’s going to be a bit of a guessing game.”
