Nick Fury has always been a supporting character in the MCU, but finally he’s getting the spotlight in the upcoming MCU live-action series for Disney Plus, Secret Invasion.
Announced on the Disney investor day alongside the likes of Ironheart and Armor Wars, this show will fit into the upcoming Phase 4 and likely tie into the overall narrative of the movies.
If you’d like to know more about Secret Invasion, including who is starring, what the plot is and most importantly when it’s coming out, then keep on reading. We also have a similar article for Loki, and a review of the debut episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Secret Invasion release date
Sadly, no release date for Secret Invasion has yet been revealed. However, we know that in 2022 we’ll likely be getting both She-Hulk and Moon Knight, so this is likely to come after this.
Therefore, we expect we won’t see Secret Invasion until the end of 2022 at the earliest – but most likely it will be 2023 or even later.
Cast of Secret Invasion
Of course, as this show centres around Nick Fury, it wouldn’t be complete without the man himself, Samuel L Jackson. Ben Mendelsohn will also be reprising his role as Talos, as seen in Captain Marvel.
Whilst not officially confirmed, Deadline reported that Olivia Coleman is in talks to play an unnamed role in the series. Kingsley Ben-Adir is also pegged to be a villain in the series.
What is the plot of Secret Invasion?
When we last saw Nick Fury in the MCU, it was in the post-credits scene for Spider-Man: Far From Home. He was aboard a spaceship with a whole bunch of Skrulls – a shapeshifting alien race first introduced in Captain Marvel. Skrulls will play a big role in Secret Invasion.
Taking inspiration from the comics, other Skrulls have allegedly infiltrated the human race and are posing as other people. Nick Fury and Talos will be teaming up to identify the imposters. And who knows? There could be some big Marvel characters who have secretly been someone else all along…
