Confirms War Machine Return Secret Invasion footage description from San Diego Comic-Con teases Samuel L. Jackson’s MCU return as Nick Fury in the Disney+ series. Secret Invasion footage description. The Marvel Cinematic Universe series acts as an adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis and Leinil Francis Yu’s comic book storyline of the same name, in which a sect of the Skrulls are revealed to have infiltrated a number of aspects of Earth and replaced a number of key figures. Secret Invasion will center on Nick Fury as he returns to Earth to investigate the situation with the help of Skrull ally Talos.
Samuel L. Jackson is returning to lead the cast of Secret Invasion as Nick Fury alongside fellow MCU vets Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross and Don Cheadle as Rhodey. The series will also mark the MCU debuts of One Night in Miami’s Kingsley Ben-Adir as the show’s undisclosed lead villain, Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, Killian Scott, Christopher McDonald and Carmen Ejogo. Kyle Bradstreet, well-known for his Emmy-nominated work on the thriller series Mr. Robot, is head writer for Secret Invasion with Let Him Go’s Thomas Bezucha and The Looming Tower’s Ali Selim directing.
The Secret Invasion footage description goes on to indicate that Fury meets with Don Cheadle’s Rhodey in an indeterminate location and subtly hinting to the MCU’s War Machine of the impending threat of the Skrulls. Interestingly, the footage show at SDCC revealed Olivia Colman to be playing an authority-type figure to Jackson’s character, leaving many to wonder whether The Crown star is playing a Skrull or if she worked with S.H.I.E.L.D. prior to their public dismantling in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Given Fury has been in space working with the Skrulls since the events of Avengers: Endgame.
