President of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, announced at the Disney Investors Day presentation that a Secret Invasion series is in development for Disney+, which will reunite Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn reprising their roles as former S.H.I.E.L.D director Nick Fury and Skrull Talos.
The series will focus on Fury and Talos investigating a faction of Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years.
The series will be inspired by the Marvel Comics crossover storyline that was published in 2008 in which several superheroes were revealed to be Skrull sleeper agents in a long-term plan to conquer the world. Many wondered when the Skrull’s were introduced in 2019’s Captain Marvel not if, but when Marvel Studios were going to implement the story into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn’s Talos are no strangers to each other, having both interacted with one another in Captain Marvel as well as work together in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
