What’s Nick Fury’s Next Mission? -The Secret Invasion Trailer
Marvel Studios has released the official Secret Invasion Trailer for the upcoming MCU story of the alien shapeshifters. The miniseries are filmed as the darkest chapter of the Marvel franchise, which also hints at some conspiracy by the Skrulls.
As the entire plotline of the show is yet to disclose, Secret Invasion will build around the Skrulls wreaking havoc on Earth, who early appeared in Captain Marvel.
Not just that, but the post-credit scenes of Spider-Man: Far From Home also show the Skrulls trying to hide in plain sight while posing as Nick Fury with the help of their shapeshifting powers. The one disguised as Nick Fury was Talos, while the real Nick Fury took cocktails with the alien shapeshifters aboard a spaceship. Therefore, the new series about to stream in October 2023 is expected to unveil what Nick is up to.
The 2008 comic event of Secret Invasion unveiled that the Skrulls have gained enormous powers so much that they can even disguise as superheroes and politicians on the planet.

As Nick Fury seems low for years, this time, he has finally made it big with the series. The trailer’s video clip involves some political thriller energy and the portrayal of Talos as the good boy. However, some disguised evil Skrulls are also trying hard to seize the globe.
Nick Fury tries to stop them, stating ‘I am the last person standing between them and what they want”. Olivia Colman and Colbie Smulders will help him out in his plan. Meanwhile, Cheadle’s Rhodey also shows up in the trailer. Directed by Ali Selim and Thomas Bezucha and Produced by Kyle Broadsheet, the miniseries will comprise six episodes to arrive on Disney+.
The conversion of comic stories into television shows is one of the best things about Marvel Studios. The creativity Marvel adds during transformation is unmatchable. With the announcement and trailer launch of Secret Invasion, fans now have higher expectations from Samuel L. Jackson, aka Nick Fury, as comebacks to battle against the Skrulls.
