What to know

Secret Invasion directly leads to Armor Wars, starring Don Cheadle as War Machine

Secret Invasion Season 1 is the first season of the superhero spy action-adventure series produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. Kyle Bradstreet — who helped write and produce the critically acclaimed series Mr. Robot — creates the series. Secret Invasion is based on the Marvel comic book storyline of the same title by Brian Michael Bendis, written in 2008. Thomas Bezucha and Ali Selim direct season 1’s six-episode run. The series reunites Nick Fury and Skrull leader Talos, who originally met in Captain Marvel. The series directly sets the stage for the War Machine film, Armor Wars, starring Don Cheadle.

The series focuses in on the life of legendary former director of the intelligence agency S.H.I.E.L.D. Nick Fury, played again by Samuel L. Jackson. Ben Mendelsohn joins Jackson as Fury’s ally and Skrull leader, Talos. Cobie Smulders reprises her role as another Fury ally and a former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Maria Hill. Emilia Clarke joins the team as newcomer G'hia, Talos' daughter. Olivia Colman portrays Sonya Falsworth, another of Nick Fury’s allies. Martin Freeman once again plays Everett K. Ross, and ex-CIA agent, and Don Cheadle plays James ‘Rhodey’ Rhodes (aka War Machine). Kingsley Ben-Adir plays Gravik, the leader of the Skrull rebels. Christopher McDonald also features.
