We are 45 days shy from the release of Secret Invasion on Disney Plus, and like every other major release out there, it has received a spread in Empire Magazine. The spread features exclusive quotes from the cast and crew behind this 6-episode series, as well as exclusive production stills.
The cast of the limited series includes Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Cobie Smulders, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Charlayne Woodard, Killian Scott, Samuel Adewunmi, Dermot Mulroney, Christopher McDonald, Martin Freeman, Katie Finneran, Emilia Clarke, Olivia Colman, and Don Cheadle.
You can view all the new stills from the series below, with our own analysis and insight inside.
Emilia Clarke is seen entering a van in this still. She portrays G’iah, Talos’ daughter, who was previously seen in Captain Marvel. Speaking with Vanity Fair, Clarke revealed the first look as well as the identity of this character.
“It’s hardened her, for sure. There’s a kind of punk feeling that you get from this girl,” Clarke says. “She’s a refugee kid who’s had Talos for a dad, you know what I mean? Maybe the fact that we didn’t know he had a kid up until this point tells you everything you need to know about their relationship.”
Samuel L. Jackson poses with Brian Tucker for a production still. This still is certainly from the second episode of the series, in which Nick Fury pays James Rhodes a visit and enquires about his security detail.
“We talked a lot about classic espionage noir, like The Third Man, as Nick moves through it, he walks out of a noir and into a Western. He becomes the lone gunslinger walking down Main Street looking for bad guys to vanquish. We go from The Third Man to John Wayne in The Searchers, and Sam walks effortlessly from one into the next.”Director Ali Selim, via Empire
Kingsley Ben-Adir portrays rebel Skrull leader Gravik in this still from the penultimate episode of the series. Details about Gravik’s role in the series are still under wraps, but we do know that he will utilize a decommissioned nuclear power plant as “his base of operations.”
Ben Mendelsohn’s Talos looks concerned as the camera focuses on him through a glass medium. This series marks the third appearance of Talos in the MCU, after Captain Marvel and Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Ali Selim directs the series and executive-produces, alongside executive producers Jonathan Schwartz, Louis D’Esposito, Kevin Feige, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Samuel L. Jackson, Ali Selim, Kyle Bradstreet, and Brian Tucker. Kyle Bradstreet is also the head writer, and Jennifer L. Booth, Allana Williams, and Brant Englestein serve as co-executive producers.
Secret Invasion arrives on Disney+ on June 21.
