The emergence of a hidden sect of shapeshifting Skrulls on Earth will keep everyone guessing in Disney+’s Secret Invasion, the new live-action Marvel series that released its first trailer during ESPN’s Sunday Night Baesball game.

Jackson (as Nick Fury), Ben Mendelsohn (as Talos, the shapeshifting Skrull we first met in Captain Marvel), Cobie Smulders (as former Deputy Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. Maria Hill), Don Cheadle (as James “Rhodey” Rhodes/War Machine) and Martin Freeman (as CIA operative Everett K. Ross).
Franchise newcomers, meanwhile, include Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) as Talos’ daughter G’iah, Kingsley Ben-Adir (Peaky Blinders) as Gravik, the leader of a group of Skrull extremists, Olivia Colman (The Crown) as an antagonistic MI6 agent, Christopher McDonald (Hacks), Carmen Ejogo (Your Honor, Killian Scott (Ripper Street), Charlayne Woodard (Pose), Killian Scott (Love/Hate), Samuel Adewunmi (You Don’t Know Me), Dermot Mulroney (Hanna) and Katie Finneran (Bloodline).

This looks great! So excited for it!
It looks OK.
This comment kinda contradicts what you commented earlier no?
Pretty Much, Lol
I’ve been looking forward to this. I’m so glad they aren’t pushing it back to 2024. Samuel L. Jackson does a wonderful job in this role and I’m expecting great things, not to mention all the groundwork they’re laying for the future of the MCU and Disney+ shows.
This looks awesome. It’s going on my watchlist. Summer is not looking bad at all, what with this and Star Trek’s Strange New Worlds both premiering in June.
I am glad we will soon be getting another Marvel entry on Disney+…
Any chance will will get Super Skrull?
(That one shot has me convinced)
Okay it looks really really good.
