Secret Invasion is looking to be a major event for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The upcoming Disney+ series will be taking inspiration from the pivotal comic book run that saw a number of Marvel characters revealed to be secret Skrull agents that had been hiding in plain sight. Fans have been eager to learn more about this Disney+ series since it looks to have huge ramifications for the future of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. Well, we have gained some big information as to who you might expect to see pop up in the series.
Our trusted inside source – the same one that gave us our confirmed scoops regarding Josh Brolin returning as Thanos and Don Cheadle appearing as War Machine in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier – has let us know which known Marvel characters are in consideration to appear in Secret Invasion. Other than Nick Fury and Talos, who have been confirmed, our source says that Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, Quake, and Monica Rambeau are all in the running to show up in the series. This would line up with our other information regarding Quake making her return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Secret Invasion.
It definitely sounds like Marvel wants Secret Invasion to be the kind of mega-event they became so adept at crafting with the Avengers series of films. With the Avengers franchise on an extended hiatus, it looks like Marvel wants to make some of their exclusive Disney+ shows act as similar big events. Nabbing the above cast of characters would certainly give the show the feel of a major story point in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In fact, it is fair to say that if every person on that list shows up in Secret Invasion, it will basically act like the kind of lynchpin turning point for the Marvel Cinematic Universe that the Avengers movies have been for the last decade.
Seeing current spotlight characters like Monica Rambeau, who is playing a key role in WandaVision, and Ms. Marvel in the running shows that Marvel wants Secret Invasion to act as a showcase for some of the newer additions to the ever-expanding roster of Marvel characters. Sprinkling in familiar faces like Captain Marvel and Quake would certainly be rewarding for longtime fans of the franchise, but it also seems like Secret Invasion will need to help set up a new era of A-list superheroes. Getting to see Monica Rambeau and Ms. Marvel in the series will help solidify them as the new headliners of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Secret Invasion is shaping up to be one powerhouse of an entry into the Marvel canon. We are guessing that there are even more surprising cast announcements in store. We will make sure to keep our eyes and ears out for any more information we can bring you. There is a good chance there are at least one or two major reveals still in the works. In the meantime, start getting excited about just how many Marvel characters could show up in this seismic event series on Disney+.
