Nick Fury takes the spotlight in first trailer for Secret Invasion

Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) battles a well-hidden threat in Secret Invaders.

There was tons of Marvel goodness at this weekend’s D23 Expo. The studio released the first teaser trailer for Secret Invasion, the six-episode crossover event series featuring Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, as well as a trailer for a Halloween TV special, Werewolf by Night, based on the Marvel Comics character. Those in attendance were also treated to sneak peek footage from a number of upcoming Marvel projects: Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Loki S2, The Marvels, Ironheart, and Echo, among others.

Secret Invasion

Secret Invasion is based on the 2008 storyline from the comics books. It’s part of Phase Five of the MCU and Feige has said that the cross-over event will tie into future Marvel films. The scope won’t be quite as large in terms of the number of characters, and will instead focus on Fury and the political intrigue and intergalactic espionage of the comics storyline, as well as illuminating things that took place during the Blip. Don Cheadle’s James “Rhode” Rhodes will appear, as will Coby Smulders as Maria Hill, Martin Freeman’s Everett K. Ross, and Dermot Mulroney as US President Ritson. The cast also includes Kingsley Ben-Adir as the primary villain, as well as Olivia Coleman, Emilia Clarke, and Killian Scott.

The basic premise is that a rebel faction of shapeshifting Skrulls have been infiltrating Earth. Fury will team up with his former Skrull ally, Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) to thwart the invading Skrulls. The teaser shows a bearded, rather scruffy-looking Fury returning to Earth after a long absence, to the surprise of Maria Hill, who has been trying to contact him for years. Clearly there is a serious threat. We see Fury meeting with Rhodes and asking how well he really knows his security detail. Because Skrulls can shapeshifter into anyone, how can you know if someone is a human or a Skrull? “I’m the last person standing between them and what they really want,” Fury says, but we don’t know yet what that might be.
