Brand new looks and details for Marvel Studios’ upcoming MCU series for Disney+ entitled Secret Invasion, based on the immensely popular series from Marvel Comics, have finally been revealed, along with details from the cast.
When talking to Vanity Fair about the upcoming MCU series, Samuel L. Jackson who stars as Nick Fury said “We don’t know who’s a friend, who’s the enemy”, about the series’ antagonists known as the Skrulls, who can transform their appearance to look like anybody or anything, making them one of Marvel’s most advanced species.
“There’s a political aspect that kind of fits into where we are right now. Who’s okay, who’s not? What happens when people get afraid and don’t understand other people? You can’t tell who’s innocent and who’s guilty in this particular instance.”Samuel L. Jackson via Vanity Fair

Emilia Clarke will be starring as Marvel’s G’iah (pronounced “Guy-ah”), a fellow Skrull who is detailed to have issues with Ben Mendelsohn’s Talos “that go far deeper than most”.
Jackson confirms that Clarke will be the daughter of Talos, as he told Vanity Fair “Remember when Ben was there with his wife and daughter? (…) She’s the little Skrull girl grown up. She’s his daughter.”
Talos’ daughter was last seen in Captain Marvel, which was set in 1995, around three decades before Secret Invasion‘s setting in the mid-2020s.
Secret Invasion will see the return of Ben Mendelsohn’s Talos, who previously appeared in projects such as Captain Marvel and Spider-Man: Far From Home, also a Skrull, Talos is a long ally to Jackson’s Nick Fury.

Cobie Smulders returns as Maria Hill in Marvel Studios’ Secret Invasion, Smulders is a long-running star in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, first appearing in The Avengers (2012).
