“I’m the last person standing between them and what they really want.” Marvel has revealed another new trailer at D23 this weekend – for the highly anticipated MCU mini-series Secret Invasion, a sequel to the latest epic Marvel movies including Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home. It’s set to arrive sometime in 2023 with this first tease as our first look at any footage. In the series, Fury returns to Earth and teams up with Talos to prevent a Skrull invasion – hence the “Secret Invasion” since they are a race of alien shapeshifters. The crossover comic event series deals with this faction of shape-shifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years. Samuel L. Jackson returns as Nick Fury, with Ben Mendelsohn as the Skrull warrior Talos, Don Cheadle as “Rhodey”, Cobie Smulders back as Maria Hill, plus Emilia Clarke, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Martin Freeman, and Olivia Colman. So far so good – footage is solid. I like the scruffy, bearded Fury finally ready to take on the Skrulls, I just don’t know why needs to do it alone.
Here’s the first official trailer for Marvel Studios’ series Secret Invasion, direct from YouTube:
