Jackson captioned his Instagram post commemorating the start of filming by writing, “Time to get back in the groove. Happy to be back on the attack! #secretinvasion”
With the series using Jackson Nick Fury as the central character, it will follow the veteran S.H.I.E.L.D agent as he deals with the fallout of the Skrull invasion on earth.
IGN.com speaks of the series as, “an espionage thriller that focuses on shape-shifting Skrulls, who invade Earth. The Skrulls replace powerful figures in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including the Avengers. It remains to be seen what kind of impact the series will have.”
The series will include Furys returning presence, being joined by the Skrull leader Talos- played by Ben Mendelsohn- who was introduced in 2019’s Captain Marvel.
The MCU Disney+ project will also feature a host of new characters still unknown, played by actors brand new to the Marvel Universe such as Kingsley Ben-Adir, Emilia Clarke, and Olivia Coleman.
The Skrull invasion is a very interesting storyline present in the Marvel comics, and presents a very unique and interesting dilemma to the MARvel world; asking the question, with Shape-shifting beings who seek humanity harm afoot, how can these heroes trust one another to not be infiltrated?
Talos and the Skrulls have been relayed to the MCU as allies to the cause of Fury, but the series will undoubtedly highlight those Skrulls who don’t see the benefit in working as closely with these human threats.
With Samuel L. Jackson confirming Marvels, Secret Invasion has begun filming, we cant wait to see what the studio has planned for the project, and if it can live up to the immensely high bar set by Marvel other Disney+ exclusive series such as WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Loki.
