If there’s one franchise we can rely on for creating and delivering content is Marvel. As Phase 4 is coming to an end in December, Marvel has already lined up several future projects for Phase 5 and even possibly Phase 6. One of these projects includes Secret Invasion, a TV mini-series created by Kyle Bradstreet. Several characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe are going to be reprising their roles for this series, and we’re just as excited as you are!
Although there are still several missing pieces about this mini-series, we’re here to tell you everything we know so far. Secret Invasion will be a spy-thriller involving the Skrulls. Whether or not you’re well-versed with the Marvel Cinematic Universe or Marvel Comics, Secret Invasion will be a good point to get involved in! Here’s everything you need to know about it, from the plot to the cast, and much more:

The Plot of Secret Invasion
As of now, we do have the premise that will surround the entire mini-series, however, we are still unsure about the detailed plot of Secret Invasion. Nick Fury and Talos, along with people like Maria Hill, try to stop the Skrulls, who have begun infiltrating Earth and other Marvel spheres known to the audience. Nevertheless, it is entirely possible that the Secret Invasion mini-series might follow the comics, which were divided into five sections: Prelude to the invasion, the infiltration, the invasion begins, the invasion: front lines, and resistance. There were a total of eight comics and several other tie-ins which followed.
Although we don’t know if the Secret Invasion mini-series will follow this pattern, if they do, they may already be at the infiltration phase. Considering the fact this is a mini-series, it will be difficult to wrap up all the events of the comics, and not every character from the comics will make it on-screen. But this does give fans some hope that there could be another season of Secret Invasion in the future.
The Cast of Secret Invasion
The cast of Secret Invasion is something that the fans are looking forward to the most. Marvel is known well for casting some of the most incredible and famous actors and actresses. Some of the cast members will be familiar faces in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, however, there will be plenty of new ones as well.
The cast members who are reprising their roles for Secret Invasion are Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Don Cheadle as James Rhodes, Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, and Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross. These characters have appeared in several Marvel projects like Captain Marvel (2019), Black Panther (2018), Avengers: Endgame (2019), the first Avengers (2012), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) and many more.
In addition to these fan favorites reprising their roles, famous names like Olivia Coleman, Emilia Clarke, Ben Mendelsohn, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Christopher McDonald, Killian Scott, Dermot Mulroney, and Carmen Ejogo will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe for this mini-series, Secret Invasion. It will be exciting to see the franchise expanding as more series and movies are released. There’s no doubt that fans will miss some of the original Marvel characters who won’t be coming back for future projects, but hopefully, the new characters can make up for it!
When and Where Can You Watch Secret Invasion?
Marvel has lined up several movies and series for the next few years, so there will be something for the fans to look forward to every few months. Although we don’t have the exact date yet, it has been confirmed that Secret Invasion will release early in 2023. So the wait shouldn’t be too far away, and hopefully, it lines up with some other events in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. What we do know is that Secret Invasion will be a part of Phase 5!
Just like any other Marvel project, Secret Invasion will also release on Disney+ and is expected to have a total of six episodes, with a run time of just under an hour. The filming for Secret Invasion began in September of 2021, and considering the fact that Marvel takes its time with their project, a 2023 release makes perfect sense.
Is There a Trailer for Secret Invasion?
The official trailer of Secret Invasion has sent chills down our spine and we know you’ve probably felt the same. Nick Fury is back and without his signature eye patch. Maria Hill looks desperate for this help, which means that something bad is going to happen. The trailer also shows off the talented cast and it’ll be interesting to see how all the episodes of this series pan out.
Will Secret Invasion Series Be Like the Comics?
The Secret Invasion comics feature The New Avengers, The Mighty Avengers, Fantastic Four, X-Men, Thunderbolts, Norman Osborn, and Skrulls. So far, we know the Skrulls will be a part of the series, but the rest is still a suspense. We are unsure how similar the series will be to the comics, but it does give fans some hope that there could be potential cameos in this series!
If the trailer and premise of Secret Invasion has excited you, we can’t wait to see what you think about the series when it releases! Do let us know in the comments what you think about this series and if you had to see someone make a cameo, who would it be?
