The series will see the return of the Skrulls which debuted in Captain Marvel (2019). The series will showcase an invasion (duh) of the Skrulls on planet Earth when many superheroes and people of important stature are replaced by the Skrulls’ ability to shapeshift. Along with the dark and gritty theme of the show, Samuel L. Jackson also stated how Nick Fury will be more badass in this series than his usual self. Amid these hot topics of Marvel being silly and bright, comes Grace Randolph to dig a grave for these comments.
