Kevin Feige announces Secret Invasion
Secret Invasion will star the return of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, and Ben Mendelson returns as Talos from Spider-Man: Far From Home and Captain Marvel.
"Now I want to talk about a couple of projects that we haven't announced, yet," said Feige. "The first of which is Secret Invasion coming to Disney Plus. Samuel L. Jackson is back as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelson from Captain Marvel returns as the Skrull, Talos. Next to Civil War, Secret Invasion is arguably the biggest crossover comic event in the last twenty years and we are bringing it to Disney Plus. It's about a sect of Skrulls who have infiltrated every level of life on Earth."

Rumors surround Brie Larson, Captain Marvel
There is the big rumor that Disney isn't happy with Brie Larson with the possibility the character could be recast or removed from the MCU completely, so we'll have to keep an eye on things.
Interestingly enough, a rumor offers that a woman of color is going to play the new Captain Marvel, and we see Feige announced Teyonah Parris will be featured in Captain Marvel 2 as Monica Rambeau, who in the comics has gone by Captain Marvel.
Captain Marvel 2 also has a new release date of Nov. 11, 2022 (updated MCU release date schedule here).
