New Set Photos Of Secret Invasion Show Emilia Clarke and Sam Jackson


Marvel’s upcoming Secret Invasion series for Disney Plus began filming in England last fall and has recently resumed filming after the Christmas/New Year break, where it is said to continue filming until the end of the January. From there filming will move to other locations in Europe.

Recently @SInvasionNews on Twitter posted multiple clips and photos of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Emilia Clarke as a yet unknown role on set:

We also saw photos of actress Cobie Smulders playing Maria Hill thanks to Twitter user @scarletearp:

Though the Secret Invasion storyline was thought to be the plot of the fifth Avengers film Marvel has instead opted to have it as a six episode series for their streaming service, in the style of the old Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. series on ABC.

The story follows the former S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents try to unmask a conspiracy as the alien species known as The Skrull have secretly infiltrated the Earth. Unlike how they were portrayed in 2019’s Captain Marvel, where they were less hostile than their comic counterparts, it appears that they are embracing the traditional Skrull presence that they had in the comics. Think They Live but in the Marvel Universe.

In 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home it was revealed in a post-credit scene that Nick Fury and Maria Hill had been replaced by Skrull agents hinting at S.W.O.R.D. The sister organization to S.H.I.E.L.D. featured in the comics but since the latter was disbanded in Captain America: The Winter Soldier the former may be a successor to the organization going forward.

The series will also star Kingsley Ben-Adir, Olivia Colman, Ben Mendelson, Killian Scott, Carmen Ejogo and Christopher McDonald and will run for six episodes, similar to all the other previous Marvel shows with a late 2022 release date.
