Nick Fury Prepares to Fight the Skrull Horde in Secret Invasion’s New Disney+ Promo

A new promo for Disney+’s Secret Invasion sees Samuel L. Jackon’s Nick Fury prepare to take on the Skrull horde alone.

The promo sees Fury meets with the likes of Don Cheadle’s James Rhodes, better known as War Machine, in preparation for the impending war he knows is coming. Fury also declares the necessity that he fight this battle on his own, both for how personal it is and the fact that there are so few left who he can trust, with friends and allies all potentially replaced by shapeshifting Skrulls as part of the titular secret invasion.

The next entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Secret Invasion is set to take place just after the events of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and will see Fury pushing back against the invading Skrull force, which has seemingly infiltrated nearly every level of government and various clandestine agencies. In March, Jackson opened up about why fans can’t expect to see any of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes showing up for the fight, explaining, “What he’s not doing is calling in his super friends. So that’s part of the whole dilemma… You’ll find that out. There’s a very good reason he’s holding back.”
How Secret Invasion Fits Into the MCU
Jackson previously discussed the role that Secret Invasion has in setting up The Marvels, which he will feature in alongside the film’s starring trio of Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris and Iman Vellani as Carol Danvers, Monica Rambeau and Kamala Khan, respectively. Speaking on the interconnected nature of the two properties within the MCU, Jackson simply stated, “This series has to happen so that The Marvels can happen.”
Secret Invasion will also see Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke take center stage alonside Jackson as the Skrull shapeshifter G’iah. In early May, Clarke commented on Secret Invasion’s six-episode arc and the broad appeal that it was designed to have. “It’s definitely a show for the fans,” Clarke said, “But it’s also a show that my mum, who doesn’t watch Marvel, will watch and get, do you know what I mean?” Clarke went on to touch on the inherent dangers of the genre itself, as fans can easily find themselves in a situation “Where if you haven’t watched all 17 other films or shows, you’re not going to get it.” Clarke promise, “This isn’t that at all.”
Secret Invasion premieres on Disney+ on June 21, 2023.
