Marvel’s Secret Invasion Reportedly Having Behind The Scenes Issues


All is not well in the world of Marvel’s Secret Invasion series. The six episode mini series is set to be one of the first releases for Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The series originally began filming in September of 2021 and supposedly concluded in April of 2022. But some new information reveals that the series may have some production problems head of its early 2023 release date.

MCU newcomer Christopher McDonald (known for Happy Gilmore, Flubber and The Iron Giant) recently spoke in an interview with Award Focus about not only potential upcoming reshoots, but also that a new writing is being brought on. The actor stated…

The director Ali Selim is fantastic, and it’s a delight to play this storyline because it’s really, really good. We’re actually heading back to London on Tuesday to do additional scenes. They’re doing reshoots in a way that’s making the story better. Apparently, there’s a new writer in there. He’s amped it up, and the series is going so much deeper than before.

Doing reshoots for the show at this time seems rather worrying as the series is meant to be releasing in around six to eight months. Though the amount of reshoots could be rather minimal it does bed the question ‘Why bring on a new writer?’.

With the Marvel Cinematic Universe recently having a few stinkers both at the box office and on streaming they should be very careful how they plan ahead. Only recently did we find out about the plans for Phase 5 and Phase 6, but remember plans can always change. Remember when the Inhumans were booted from Phase 3?

Hopefully these last minute changes won’t be too severe and won’t require too much work. Though with a number of Marvel VFX artists voicing their concerns over the work load they may have to alter a few things here and there.
