New “Secret Invasion” Teaser Finds Nick Fury in a World of Trouble
“An invasion is here, Rhodey,” says Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) to James Rhodes (Don Cheadle), at the top of this new Secret Invasion teaser. “Except we can’t even tell who the invaders are.”
Marvel Studios’ upcoming series is now just two weeks away, and Nick Fury is going to be short on allies and long on enemies. The problem is those enemies will be wearing the faces of allies, even friends. Yet he will have his old buddy, a fellow shape-shifting Skrull named Talos, played by the always delightful Ben Mendelsohn. Fury and Talos became unexpected allies during the events of the 1990s-set Captain Marvel. Things are even more complicated for the duo now, as Fury is thrust into the middle of the intracrine battle within the Skrull community spilling out on Earth. This dynamic duo is faced with a nearly impossible task—defeating an enemy that can wear anybody’s face as the Skrulls infiltrate the corridors of power and take control from within. Their effort is led by Kingsley Ben-Adir’s Gravik, who leads a group committed to taking control of the levers of power on Earth to use its resources for their own needs.
Jackson, Mendelsohn, and Ben-Adir are joined by a stellar cast that includes Emilia Clark as G’iah, Talos’s daughter, Olivia Colman as Special Agent Sonya Falsworth, Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, Killian Scott as Fiz, and Carmen Ejogo and Christopher McDonald in unspecified roles.
Secret Invasion, created by Kyle Bradstreet, promises to be a grittier series. “Even though there are aliens, and there’s going to be extraordinary fight sequences, this is about people on the ground talking to each other, and interviewing people, and really doing hands-on work to get the information needed,” Cobie Smulders told THR.
Check out the new teaser below. Secret Invasion arrives on Disney+ on June 21:
