Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury Has His Eye Back In Secret Invasion Trailer
Samuel L. Jackson‘s Nick Fury looks worn out. But also, strangely better. At the very least, he has his eye back.
In the first trailer for the Marvel Studios Disney+ series Secret Invasion, the longtime protector of the planet, known for uniting the superheroes known as the Avengers, appears to be done relying on others to help save the world.
“This is my war. Alone,” he says. “I’m the last person standing between them and what they really want.” The “them” appears to be the Skrulls, those green, pointy-eared alien shapeshifters we first encountered in Captain Marvel. Back in that story, set in the mid-1990s, they were the unexpected good guys, refugee aliens seeking help rather than conquest.
Now, it seems the creatures who can make themselves look like anyone have infiltrated the governments of the world and taken over without a shot fired. That’s the premise of the Marvel Comics that inspired this story, at least. Twists and turns are expected when it starts streaming on Disney+ in 2023.
Footage from Secret Invasion screened at Disney D23 Expo on Saturday, as Marvel showcased the next few years of its slate. It also features Oscar winner Olivia Coleman as a concerned world leader (or is she a Skrull?), Ben Mendelsohn returning as Talos (definitely a Skrull, but a good one), and Kingsley Ben-Adir as a man whose entire roomful of security morphs to look exactly like him (if he’s not a Skrull, the others definitely are.)
Ironically, there was more Nick Fury to be found in the teaser (which hasn’t yet been released to the public) for next summer’s …
This sequel to Captain Marvel unites Brie Larson‘s galactic protector Iman Vellani‘s young fangirl Kamala Khan from the Ms. Marvel show, and Teyonah Parris‘ now photon-powered Monica Rambeau from WandaVision. “Monica got powers—or something—so we’re going to see how those pop off in The Marvels,” Parris told the D23 crowd.
At the end of Ms. Marvel, Khan disappears in a flash of light and is replaced by Captain Marvel, who has no idea why she is in a teenage earthling’s bedroom. In footage of director Nia DaCosta‘s The Marvels, we see a younger, more energized Nick Fury in a space station, guiding Rambeau on a spacewalk to examine a glowing, orbiting anomaly.
