Check out the video below in case you need to rewatch the Secret Invasion trailer.
Let’s dive in and see some key details that may change the course of the MCU as we know it.
Key Detail #1: Secret Invasion Takes Place After Avengers: Endgame
The new trailer confirms that the majority of Secret Invasion will be taking place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. It begins with Ben Mendelsohn’s Talos revealing how bad things have gotten since Fury’s been gone, and Fury is now back in response to this growing threat.
Key Detail #2: Emilia Clarke’s Character is the Skrull G’iah
Emilia Clarke will be playing the Skrull G’iah. If you recall, she is the daughter of Talos first seen in Captain Marvel. Featured in several shots of the new Secret Invasion trailer, it looks like she will have a strenuous relationship with her father while coming to terms if she truly wants to be a rogue Skrull.
Key Detail #3: What Do Gravik and the Rogue Skrulls Really Want?
We get to see more about the villain Gravik, portrayed by Kingsley Ben-Adir, who appears to be leading a group of renegade Skrulls. Additionally, the trailer shows us a large-scale experiment that involves a device that Fury is seemingly trying to stop, which includes several hidden bodies.
Key Detail #4: No Formal Roster of Avengers Yet
Fury is questioned about the whereabouts of the Avengers, and he replies that he must face this new conflict alone. This suggests that a formal team of Avengers may not have been established yet, following the events of Avengers: Endgame.
Key Detail #5: The Department of Damage Control Will Play an Important Role in the Series
In the Secret Invasion trailer, it is revealed that the Department of Damage Control (DODC) will be playing a significant role in managing extraterrestrial threats in the absence of SHIELD. The contents of a briefcase labeled as a sample from a “Cull” specimen hint that the ranks of the DODC might have been infiltrated by the Skrulls.
Key Detail #6: Gravik’s Power and Possibility of Being MCU’s Super-Skrull
The final scenes of the trailer show Gravik extending his arm, preparing to attack an unseen adversary. This is a nod to Gravik’s potential to be the MCU’s version of the Super-Skrull. In the comics, Super-Skrull possesses the combined abilities of all the members of the Fantastic Four, making him a formidable, shape-shifting foe.
Key Detail #7: High Stakes for Nick Fury and the Future of the MCU
The trailer confirms several details regarding the show’s plot while hinting at the very high stakes for Fury. As the rogue Skrulls’ infiltration of humanity becomes more widespread, Fury has no other choice but to fight this new battle alone.
The Secret Invasion trailer is packed with intriguing details that give fans plenty to speculate about. From the return of Nick Fury to the introduction of new characters and potential plot twists, the upcoming Disney+ Marvel series is shaping up to be an exciting addition to the MCU.
