Secret Invasion stars Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Kingsley Ben-Adir (Peaky Blinders), Killian Scott (Love/Hate), Carmen Ejogo (Your Honor, True Detective), and Christopher McDonald (Ballers). Thomas Bezucha (The Family Stone, Let Him Go) and Ali Selim (Criminal Minds, Manhunt) are directing
The “crossover event series” has certainly made a lot of fans sit up and take closer notice of the series. Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige (and trailers) have teased a “darker” espionage thriller laced with tension and twists, with a Skrull plot whose impact could be felt across a wide span of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
War Machine actor Don Cheadle recently spoke about how Secret Invasion will set up his upcoming Disney+ series, Armor Wars:
“[The MCU] It’s bananas! And it’s very expansive. And obviously, now that everyone can show up in everybody else’s story,” Cheadle said in an issue of Total Film earlier this year. “I mean, I’m in Secret Invasion, so I’m in Sam [Jackson]’s show. There’s a part of that, that kicks off what happens in Armor Wars.”
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever actor Martin Freeman will also see his Everett Ross show up in Secret Invasion, and teases what kind of new ride Marvel fans are about to go on:
“It feels pretty different to stuff I’ve seen,” Freeman explained to Digital Spy. “It does feel like a little departure. Yeah, it does — in ways that I wouldn’t be that able to describe. Again, I’ve not seen it. I’ve not even read all of it.”
“It looks lake good,” Mariah Hill actress Cobie Smulders said in an interview last fall, “and it’s a very different tone than I’ve seen [in the MCU]. I mean, having Sam [Jackson] in anything is just a thrill to watch, but I think it really sets his character up in a really interesting way that I’ve always wanted to see.”
