Disney+’s new upcoming series, Secret Invasion, is undergoing a reshoot because of the ongoing war situation in Ukraine. Secret Invasion is set to bring the biggest crossover story from the comics to the screen. The wrap-up of the shoot was months ago, but it is undergoing reshoot now. The reshoots of Secret Invasion were brought in because of the devastating sequence that may possess ongoing parallels with the war in Ukraine.
How did the war ruin Marvel’s upcoming project?
The Ukraine invasion by Russia started in February. Recently the reports describe attacks across Eastern and Southern Ukraine. The most recent attack was the missile attack in the Ukrainian town of Nikopol and the Kharkiv region. The European Union(EU) and the U.S have religiously contributed $1.7 billion to the Ukrainian Government. They also approved of an $820 million military aid package a few weeks ago, that also includes air defense systems.
“Secret Invasion is doing re-shoots because of the devasting sequence that hits too close to home involving Ukraine citizens” tweeted the Secret Invasion News.
The Secret Invasion series:
In April it was reported that Secret Invasion had wrapped up their shoot. Later on, after a few weeks, Samuel L. Jackson confirmed that he is returning as the former director of S.H.I.E.L.D. Nick Fury, and shared images of make-up and prosthetics for Samuel L. Jackson’s character; which indicated that there might be some shooting left to do. When Samuel L. Jackson was asked about the condition of the production he replied, “No. I’m not done. I am on my way back to London at some point in August. But I got to go back and do stuff for The Marvels and then I got to do stuff for Secret Invasion.”
The plot and characters of this series are scarce. Recent reports have revealed that Agent Everett Ross, is going to be in this show, along with Don Cheadle’s War Machine. Nick Fury is also going to return to be a part of this show since Captain Marvel. The series is also going to introduce new actors like Emilia Clarke, Kingsley Ben-Adir, and Olivia Coleman to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We don’t know their roles as of now.
Secret Invasion does not have a release date but is supposed to premiere sometime in 2023.
