SDCC 2022: Marvel Studios' 'Secret Invasion' Release Date Announced
San Diego Comic-Con is once again in full swing, and that can only mean one thing: Marvel Studios has returned to Hall H! During the blockbuster Marvel Studios panel at the convention center, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige took the stage to thunderous cheers and applause to announce what’s coming next out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in theaters and streaming on Disney+.
During the presentation, Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, announced that Marvel Studios' Secret Invasion will be coming to Disney+ in Spring 2023.
Cobie Smulders, who reprises her role of Maria Hill — a decorated spy and Nick Fury’s loyal #2— was on hand to talk about the new show.
"This is a darker show," Smulders told the crowd. "We're going to get deeper into the characters. We're going to see them in new ways, and it's going to be an exciting thriller, and you're never going to know who people are. Are they a Skrull? Are they a human? It's going to be a bit of a guessing game."
Footage played in the room highlighted this darker tone for the MCU, with the opening of the clip showing a conversation between Hill and Fury — he's been off-world for years ignoring her calls, but he's finally come back because he knows the threat is too great. But just how bad is it? In another scene, Fury is seen asking James "Rhodey" Rhodes — aka War Machine — just how well he knows his assigned protection as things between the two men get tense.
Secret Invasion stars Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn as the Skrull Talos—characters who first met in Captain Marvel. They are joined by Kingsley Ben-Adir, Emilia Clarke, and Olivia Colman.
The crossover event series showcases a faction of shapeshifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years.
