Secret Invasion Trailer: Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury Disney+ Show
The spy series starts June 21 on Disney+.
After years on the sidelines as ringleader for The Avengers, Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury is finally getting his moment in the spotlight.
Fury will play a central role in the upcoming Secret Invasion, one of the most anticipated Marvel television events in recent memory. The limited series picks up where WandaVision and Spider-Man: No Way Home left off, with the shapeshifting Skrull joining forces with allies from his recently destroyed home planet to attempt to take over Earth.
In addition to Jackson, the series will reprise their roles from previous Marvel films such as Don Cheadle, Martin Freeman and Cobie Smulders. Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke and Kingsley Ben-Adir will also perform. The show was created by Kyle Bradstreet, who adapted it from an acclaimed 2008 comic arc written by Brian Michael Bendis.
Secret Invasion is a six episode limited series that appears to tell a unique story that fits within the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. The studio has found great success with this type of narrative storytelling on projects like WandaVision — but its television strategy may soon change. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige recently stated that he hopes to take future television projects in a more episodic direction, which could result in fewer series like Secret Invasion being filmed.
“So now – and I think you’re not just seeing that on our shows but on a lot of other shows – you’re starting to see the fun of a self-contained, episodic story week in and week out. We will experiment with this in some of our upcoming projects,” said Feige. “Cliffhangers are great and I like to watch a series that makes you go to bed, but when you see the cliffhanger you just have to watch the next episode. You definitely want to keep people engaged. But I’m a huge Star Trek fan and I still find it comforting to see a Next Gen episode with a beginning and an end. So I think we will keep experimenting with that in the future.”
Secret Invasion premieres June 21 on Disney+. Check out the latest trailer below.
