Welcome back, Nick Fury.
Samuel L. Jacksonone of the most faithful stars in Marvel Cinematic Universereturns as Nick Fury in Secret invasionbased on one of the most important Marvel Century of comic stories. In the comic book version, Marvel’s heroes discover that many of their own teammates and friends are actually sleeper agents of the alien race known as the Skrulls, who are able to change their form to look like anyone.
The Skrulls were introduced to the MCU in Captain Marvel, who, in a twist, revealed that they were a mostly peaceful and benevolent group of intergalactic refugees. But in Secret invasion, it seems that not all Skrulls are friendly – and it seems that they are hell-bent on taking over the planet. And it’s up to Nick Fury to stop them.
In addition to Jackson, the series stars Emilia Clarke, Kingsley Ben-Adir and Ben Mendelsohn, who was one of the “good” Skrulls from Captain Marvel. Watch the first trailer for the show below, direct from the D23 Expo:
