Most details about Secret Invasion are still under wraps, other than the fact that it’s a crossover event series based on the comic story line of the same name. It’s set to feature the Skrulls, who’ve managed to use their shape-shifting powers to infiltrate Earth over years. But the series will also spotlight Fury in a starring role, and Jackson teases that the show will dive deeper into Fury’s past and future.
“There are things that even I really didn’t know about Nick Fury that I just found out,” Jackson says. “The minds behind what happened during the Blip are fantastic. That’s part of what we’re uncovering when we do this series now.”
Jackson added that he’s enjoyed showing different sides of his irascible agent.
“[It’s] giving me an opportunity to explore something other than the badassery of who Nick Fury is,” Jackson adds. “I’ve had a good time doing that, and I’m looking forward to people sharing that aspect of who he is when this series does happen.”
A release date for Secret Invasion has yet to be announced, but it’s one of the many Disney+ shows that Marvel has in the works. Up next, Iman Vellani will make her MCU debut as Kamala Khan in Ms. Marvel, followed by She-Hulk, Ironheart, Armor Wars, and an Agatha Harkness spinoff with Kathryn Hahn.
