The secret’s out. Take a look at Marvel’s Secret Invasion TV series, arriving on Disney Plus in 2023. A trailer dropped Saturday at Disney’s D23 Expo 2022.


Samuel L. Jackson reprises his role as MCU superspy Nick Fury, while Ben Mendelsohn reprises his role as alien Skrull leader Talos, seen initially in 2019’s Captain Marvel. The new series, which was announced in 2020, is based on a comic in which shape-changing Skrulls replace Marvel heroes to infiltrate and invade Earth.

The clip, which was revealed at the D23 fan event, reveals that Jackson will be involved in a lot of action and deception, with Colbie Smulders and Olivia Colman assisting. And Fury still has the cat-like Flerken’s eye scars, Goose.


Oscar-winner Colman feels like Fury’s in “no shape” for what lies ahead, but he’s going to have to try.

In the post-credits scene for Spider-Man: Far From Home it was revealed that the Fury we’d seen throughout the movie was actually Talos taking his place, while the real Fury sipped cocktails with Skrulls aboard a spaceship. The new series should reveal what he’s been up to.

The next Marvel adventure that will hit Disney Plus is a Halloween special after the current MCU series She-Hulk wraps up its run,. That will be followed by the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special in December.

In 2023 we’ll see Echo and Loki season 2. Other Disney Plus shows in the works from Marvel Studios include Ironheart, Agatha: Coven of Chaos, and a Don Cheadle-led series called Armor Wars.
