Secret Invasion, starring Kyle Bradstreet, is set to premiere on Disney+ in June as the first Marvel Cinematic Universe television series of Phase 5.
The plan to give Marvel staple Nick Fury his own standalone film, starring Samuel L. Jackson, has been in the works since before the MCU even existed.
The one-eyed, ex-director of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return in a more grizzled form in Secret Invasion, picking up where he left off in Captain Marvel and Spider-Man: Far From Home with his work with the Skrulls.
Secret Invasion will feature a rogue sect of those green-skinned baddies who will be more known to comic book readers who were dissatisfied by Captain Marvel’s reimagining of the shape-shifting Skrulls as sympathetic refugees.
Marvel Movie Secret Invasion Release Date
Secret Invasion, which follows Nick Fury as he tries to get his rhythm back, will be available on Disney+ beginning June 21.

Secret Invasion will have six episodes, like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and the first season of Loki.
In addition to Thomas Bezucha (Let Him Go) and Ali Selim (The Looming Tower), filmmaker Tim Bradstreet (Mr. Robot) will be working on this project. Secret Invasion, like other Disney+ shows, will probably have new episodes available every week.

A more fragile Fury mentions “one last flight,” and we get a better look at the personalities played by Clarke and Colman.
Talos warns him that Skrulls commanded by Gravik (Kingsley-Ben Adir) are a threat and will do everything it takes to get what mankind promised them.
In 2022, at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel’s Secret Invasion presented its first teaser trailer.

Samuel L. Jackson, who was last seen on a space station at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home, has been confirmed to reprise his role as Nick Fury, former head of SHIELD, in Marvel’s Secret Invasion, which was first revealed in December 2020.
Rogue One’s Ben Mendelsohn, who played the shapeshifting alien Talos, will co-star in the series, and their relationship was hinted at in the film’s post-credits scene.
Some have speculated that this series could be setting up events that will unravel in the Captain Marvel sequel because the two initially crossed paths during the events of the 1990s-set film.
Cobie Smulders, who originally debuted in the MCU in the film Avengers Assemble, will reprise her role as Nick Fury’s assistant Maria Hill in the new series.

In April of 2020, Marvel made two huge casting announcements for Secret Invasion, catapulting the film to the top of fans’ must-see lists.
The Hollywood Reporter first reported that Oscar winner Olivia Colman (The Favourite, Peep Show) was in talks for the series, and Marvel Studios later confirmed the news.
The trailer presented at San Diego Comic-Con 2022 established beyond a reasonable doubt that Colman’s character would first side with Fury.
Colman’s casting as secret spy Sonya Falsworth was later confirmed. Is she reliable?
The next day after Colman’s first casting was announced, Variety claimed that Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke will also participate in the show, though no details were provided about her character.
Kingsley Ben-Adir, who played Malcolm X in Regina King’s drama One Night in Miami and received tremendous acclaim for his performance, was previously reported for a villainous part in the series (via Deadline).
It was eventually discovered that Ben-Adir was playing the role of Gravik, the commander of the renegade Skrulls.
Christopher McDonald (Happy Gilmore) and Killian Scott (Dublin Murders), according to Deadline, have joined the cast in roles that could have implications for the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole.
Deadline also reports that Carmen Ejogo, who starred in True Detective, has joined the cast in a mystery role.
The Secret Invasion teaser also confirmed that Unbreakable’s Charlayne Woodard has been cast in the series, though her exact role is still unknown. Speculation has it that she may play Nick Fury’s relative or perhaps his wife.
Priscilla Fury is the wife of Nick Fury and an agent of S.W.O.R.D., and Twitter user Daniel Richtman has suggested that Woodard plays the role.
