Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury has been around since the first Iron Man, but he’s mostly played a supporting character around heavyweights like Captain America and Captain Marvel.
Now Fury is set to be his own central character in the upcoming series Secret Invasion, and we have a new featurette highlighting just how close this story will be to Fury this time around. Check this out:
Though Samuel L. Jackson is at the very center of the movie, the film has surprisingly gathered some major stars to appear in the show. Besides guest stars like Cobie Smulders and Martin Freeman, the show has also nabbed Olivia Coleman (The Favourite) and Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones, Solo: A Star Wars Story); they’ve also brought back Ben Mendelsohn to reprise his role as Talos from Captain Marvel.
Admittedly, hype for the movie seems to be at a low for Marvel, but some fans think this could be the franchise trying something new this time around. With She-Hulk: Attorney at Law leaning more into a traditional sitcom as compared to other Marvel series; some think that the change in marketing could mean Secret Invasion could be promising a different kind of story set in the MCU.
Then again, we have been wrong before. Here’s the official synopsis:
“In Secret Invasion, set in the present-day MCU, Fury learns of a clandestine invasion of Earth by a faction of shapeshifting Skrulls. Fury joins his allies, including Everett Ross, Maria Hill, and the Skrull Talos, who has made a life for himself on Earth. Together they race against time to thwart an imminent Skrull invasion and save humanity.”
Secret Invasion is now streaming on Disney+.
