Back in September news broke that Marvel was bringing a Nick Fury TV series starring Samuel L. Jackson to Disney+. At the time, it wasn’t clear what shape the series would take, since Fury had last been seen in Spider-Man: Far From Home zipping off into the depths of space on a Skrull ship. Despite the fact that Jackson’s Fury had a prominent role in that film (in terms of the stuff going on on Earth), it was revealed that it wasn’t Fury at all…but rather the shape-shifting Skrull Talos played by Ben Mendelsohn who Fury had aided and befriended during the events of Captain Marvel.
So with Fury off-world and a Skrull stepping into the shoes of one of the most important superspies on the planet, fans immediately began wondering if Marvel was looking to bring Secret Invasion to the screen. It turns out, they were.
The Disney+ Nick Fury series won’t be a Nick Fury: Agent of SHIELD show, or anything that steps on the toes of the recently completed Agents of SHIELD TV series after all. In fact, the series is Secret Invasion, and Mendelsohn will join Jackson, reprising his role as Talos for the series.
Secret Invasion was one of MANY new Marvel series announced for Disney+, including the War Machine centric Armor Wars, and a series that will introduce Riri Williams, Ironheart, as the new armored genius of the MCU. And it joins a roster that already includes WandaVision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, She-Hulk, and more.
