Secret Invasion: Samuel L. Jackson Confirms Marvel Series Has Begun Filming
The caption of Jackson’s Instagram post reads, “Time to get back in the groove. Happy to be back on the attack! #secretinvasion” The series is expected to be an espionage thriller that focuses on shape-shifting Skrulls, who invade Earth. The Skrulls replace powerful figures in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including the Avengers. It remains to be seen what kind of impact the series will have on the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Marvel’s Secret Invasion has recently added two directors, Thomas Bezucha and Ali Selim. Bezucha has worked on the 2020 Kevin Costner thriller Let Him Go and Selim has worked on Hulu’s miniseries, The Looming Tower. Jackson will be joined by Ben Mendelsohn’s Talos, who was introduced as a Skrull in Captain Marvel. Other cast members include Kingsley Ben-Adir, Emilia Clarke, and Olivia Colman. Mr. Robot’s Kyle Bradstreet is writing and producing the series.
Since Skrulls and Talos have been allies in the MCU so far, Marvel Studios’ version of Secret Invasion is expected to be different compared to the comic books. Currently, details regarding the plot and release date of Secret Invasion aren’t revealed yet. The series will debut on Disney Plus Hotstar in India. Since Secret Invasion has just started filming, fans can expect it to debut at least some time next year.
