A new Secret Invasion trailer gets released tonight by Marvel for the Disney Plus series and also confirms the release date.
“Who do you trust” teases the poster featuring Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury -but maybe not – as the poster also features and references the series being about the Skrulls that have the ability to shapeshift.
Update: Watch the trailer.
“We don’t know who’s a friend, who’s the enemy,” Jackson recently Vanity Fair. “There’s a political aspect that kind of fits into where we are right now: Who’s okay? Who’s not? What happens when people get afraid and don’t understand other people? You can’t tell who’s innocent and who’s guilty in this particular instance.”
Cobie Smulders also said, “Listen, I would’ve loved superpowers at some point, but it’s also intriguing playing a human in this world, because you’ve made the choice to really put your life in jeopardy. This is a Marvel story where the humans can shine. Even though there are aliens, and there’s going to be extraordinary fight sequences, this is about people on the ground talking to each other, and interviewing people, and really doing hands-on work to get the information needed.”
