After filling its cast out over the last month, Marvel Studios’ upcoming series Secret Invasion finally has directors. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Thomas Bezucha (Let Him Go, The Family Stone) and Ali Selim (The Looming Tower) have signed on to helm the Disney+ series.
Announced at Disney’s Investor Day in December, the series will see Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Ben Mendelsohn (Talos) reprise their MCU roles. Joining them will be Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, Kingsley Ben-Adir, and Killian Scott.
The series will loosely be based on the popular event from Marvel comics. That story involved Skrulls secretly replacing superheroes across the globe. However, it’s not known how Marvel will pull this off since, at the moment, Skrulls are seen as “good guys” in the MCU.
Like Loki and Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Secret Invasion is expected to be six episodes in length. Filming will begin sometime in the fall in Europe, meaning it will likely hit the Disney streaming service sometime in 2022. Kyle Bradstreet, known for his work on Mr. Robot, will write and executive produce the series.
