D23 Expo: Secret Invasion (And Misty Knight) Emerges from the Shadows in First-Look Trailer

Secret Invasion

When Brian Michael Bendis’ Secret Invasion came out in 2008-09, it changed the fabric of the Marvel Universe. It further fractured the relationships of our heroes after the events of Civil War, and it left them with severe trust issues. While Marvel Studios’ Secret Invasion isn’t the crossover event that the comics were, the themes of conspiracy and trust at the highest level remain the one constant between the two.

Below you can see the trailer that was revealed to the fans of Hall H, while the attendees at the D23 Expo got a different trailer than the one seen below.

At D23, the footage begins with the complete conversation between James Rhodes and Nick Fury. The pair banter about Nick’s subordination and Rhodey “forgetting his rank.” Then, the conversation gets serious. It turns out that James Rhodes has known about the alien invasion for some time, but it sounds as if he had no idea that they were disguising themselves as humans.

Also, within the trailer, we may have our first look at the possibility of Simone Missick joining the cast as Misty Knight. If Simone Missick is back, then the integration of all the Netflix Marvel actors is well on its way. It also solidifies the rumors that Krysten Ritter and Mike Colter are returning as well.

Secret Invasion stars Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn as the Skrull Talos—characters who first met in Captain Marvel. They are joined by Kingsley Ben-Adir, Emilia Clarke, and Olivia Colman. The crossover event series showcases a faction of shapeshifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years.
