Secret Invasion is going to be one heck of a blast. While the MCU is already pushing many shows into the Disney+ platform, Secret Invasion could be the jackpot that really sets the MCU small-screen verse up. And as the release date for the show nears, we are seeing more and more new faces making their mark in the superhero genre.
Moon Knight and Ms. Marvel are just around the corner now. But fans are eagerly waiting to see this series for many reasons. For starters, we know that Nick Fury has been in space since Far from Home. The Skrulls will be a huge part of the show. The title itself means that the show will take cues from the award-winning Secret Invasion comic book arc. And it is good to know we have some fresh faces to watch out for in the MCU via this series.
Killian Scott Plays The Mutant Skrull ‘Fiz’ In Secret Invasion
Killian Scott was an mystery announcement that totally caught us off guard. For many weeks, we didn’t even know what role he was going to play. Then news came that Scott will be playing a little known Skrull character from the comics called Foz. In Marvel Comics, Fiz is a mutant Skrull who has the ability to shrink and grow in sizes.
Fiz came to Earth and was trained by Professor X, becoming a part of the X-Men for a while. The Illuminati are already making an appearance in Doctor Strange 2. And Patrick Stewart has confirmed that he is playing Professor X in the film. So does Fiz represent an attempt by MCU to integrate mutants into shows?
Kingsley Ben-Adir Would Probably Play The Skrull Emperor Dorrek VII In Secret Invasion
Dorrek VII is the evil Skrull Emperor who led the Skrulls during the comic book Secret Invasion arc. Kingsley Ben-Adir’s role in Secret Invasion is not known. But fans theorize that he will be playing Dorrek VII in the series. All we know is that Ben-Adir is going to play a series main villain. And Dorrek VII fits the bill.
If not Dorrek VII, then the actor could be playing the Super Skrull. In the comic books, Kl’rt aka the Super Skrull has all the powers of the Fantastic Four. He also has a connection with She-Hulk. He came to Earth in search of his daughter who had connections with the She-Hulk. So Secret Invasion could be connecting the dots with other shows too.
Olivia Colman Is Either Playing Secret Invasion’s Empress Veranke Or Victoria Hand
Colman’s role in the show remains unconfirmed as of yet. But fans are already speculating that she will be playing a major character considering her acting chops. Our first guess would be that she is playing Empress veranke, the Skrull Queen that became a thorn on the Avengers’ side during the comic book arc.
If not Veranke, then our next bet would be in Victoria Hand, a popular SHIELD agent from the comic books. Hand has already made her live action debut in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The show killed her off. But since Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is no longer considered MCU canon, anything is possible now.
Christopher McDonald Could Be Playing Norman Osborn In Secret Invasion
Christopher McDonald has had a highly decorated career in the movie industry. He has dozens of shows and movies under his belt. He generally portrays villains in films and shows. Superhero fans may remember him as the one who lent his voice for Jor-El in Superman: The Animated Series. McDonald has also been a part of Batman Beyond.
His villainous aura would make him a good match for playing Norman Osborn in Secret Invasion. Osborn was instrumental in putting the Skrulls on the back foot, allowing Earth to come out in one piece at the end of the arc. Also, could Marvel be hinting at the Dark Avengers in the near future?
