Secret Invasion

After working with the Skrulls in space for years, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) returns to Earth and helps his friend Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) expose a conspiracy, led by the renegade Gravik (Kingsley Ben-Adir). A frustratingly uneven miniseries where evil Skrulls infiltrate the leading governments of the world, increasing the risk of another world war. Involved in the battle are among others a cheerfully shady MI6 agent (Olivia Colman) and Emilia Clarke as Talos’s resentful daughter. Engaging at times, but it definitely feels like a lesser, far from necessary, television bridge between Marvel movies.

2023-U.S. 272 min. Color. Widescreen. Created by Kyle Bradstreet. Directed by Ali Selim. Cast: Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Ben Mendelsohn (Talos), Kingsley Ben-Adir (Gravik), Emilia Clarke, Olivia Colman, Don Cheadle… Dermot Mulroney, Martin Freeman. 

Trivia: Originally shown in six episodes. Co-executive produced by Jackson.
