There’s only one episode left of Disney+’s Nick Fury series, Secret Invasion. If you have yet to start the six-episode-long show, we’ve got to ask: why? The show has a star-studded cast, with Samuel L. Jackson as the show’s lead, Nick Fury. Joining him is Ben Mendelsohn reprising his role as the Skrull, Talos. Don Cheadle also reprises his role as Colonel “Rhodey” Rhodes, while Cobie Smulders is Agent Maria Hill, Martin Freeman is Agent Everett K. Ross.
New to the Marvel Universe is Dermot Mulroney as President Ritson. Other newcomers to the franchise are Charlyne Woodard as Priscilla Fury (Nick’s wife), Emilia Clarke as G’iah (Talos’ daughter), Olivia Colman as Sonya Falswworth, Killian Scott as Pagon, and Christopher Mcdonald as Chris Stearns. And the show’s main villain, Ben-Adir’s Skrull Gravik. Besides the fantastic cast, the show itself is dark, gritty, suspenseful, and a thrilling action series.
Gravik, among many other Skrulls, have been living on earth for years. And he has successfully discovered how to give Skrulls powers, beyond their shape-shifting abilities, making “Super Skrulls.” As part of his plan to have the Skrulls take over Earth, he has also successfully manipulated Russia and the US to believe each other wants to go to war. Each episode will have you guessing at every turn who is a Skrull or not or who is a double agent.
Here are just five great reasons to catch up with Secret Invasion. New episodes premiere on Wednesdays at 3 am ET on Disney+. The last episode of the first season streams on July 26.
