The Secret Invasion release date will bring a focus on the Skrull to the MCU. Fortunately, this is one of the Phase Five shows we know the most about, and we’ll cover details on the cast, plot, and if there are any rumors or leaks below.
When is the Secret Invasion release date?
Kevin Feige announced the Phase Five slate at San Diego Comic-Con 2022. He revealed that Secret Invasion would premiere in spring 2023. This series will be the second installment of Phase Five after Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania.
Who is in the Secret Invasion cast?
Perhaps the biggest draw that Secret Invasion has is its star-studded cast. Samuel L. Jackson will be returning to his long-running MCU role as Nick Fury, this time as the main character rather than a supporting one. Ben Mendelsohn will be co-starring as the Skrull Talos, a character who previously came face to face with Fury in Captain Marvel. Cobie Smulders will be portraying Maria Hill, and the show will also feature Killian Scott and Rune Temte in the main cast.
Emilia Clarke, famous for her role in Game of Thrones, will be joining the MCU as a to-be-confirmed character. She will be joined by Oscar-winning actress Olivia Colman as an old ally of Fury’s. In March 2021, Kingsley Ben-Adir joined the cast, and he will be portraying the main antagonist. Other confirmed actors include Christopher McDonald, Noel Fisher, and Carmen Ejogo. Some returning MCU faces include Don Cheadle as James Rhodes and Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross.
What is the Secret Invasion plot?
This plot of Secret Invasion follows a group of shape-shifting Skrulls who have infiltrated Earth for years. In the post-credits scene of Spider-Man: Far From Home, we got a plot twist where we learned that Talos had been impersonating Nick Fury for the entire film with another Skrull, Soren, impersonating Maria Hill. Secret Invasion may delve more into the relationship between Fury and Talos, and we may find out about other MCU scenes where a Skrull was hiding in plain sight.
Production wrapped on the show in April 2022, and with a cast and premise like this, we are sure to be in for another entertaining installment in the MCU.
