Synopsis

The technologically advanced shapeshifting race known as Skrulls return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in Secret invasion. Having already appeared in several MCU stories – including Captain Marvel, Spider-Man: Far From Home, WandaVision and Loki – what’s next for the Skrulls? Secret Invasion is inspired by the popular comic book crossover storyline by Marvel Comics. The series featured tie-ins between several comics and documented the long-term invasion of Earth by the Skrulls. However, the surprising events of the MCU’s Captain Marvel indicate vast differences between the comic book series and the TV series.
