‘Secret Invasion’ Filming Underway in Leeds, England

The fourth phase in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going strong with four feature-length entries and five series released so far. But the fun is only just starting because we have Moon Knight, launching on Disney+ at the end of March, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness releasing in theatres in May.

And Marvel isn’t slowing down because filming is well underway for another one of Marvel’s upcoming projects!

The massively popular Secret Invasion event is getting the Disney+ treatment with Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, and Cobie Smulders returning for the six-episode limited series.

For those who don’t know, Secret Invasion will be an adaptation of the fan-favourite storyline in which shape-shifting Skrulls have secretly replaced many Marvel superheroes in preparation for an invasion of Earth.

Killian Scott (fourth image above) was also spotted filing alongside Clarke. And if you check out the three images below, you’ll be able to see the big man himself, Samuel L. Jackson!

Jackson has been absent from the MCU since his last appearance in 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home, so it’s good to see him back in his Nick Fury costume, rocking a new beard to go with it. Also, if you click the images, you’ll be able to see that he’s standing alongside his Captain Marvel co-star, Ben Mendelsohn, who will be returning as Fury’s Skrull ally, Talos.
