The MCU’s latest venture, She-Hulk: Lawyer, just debuted on Disney+, but what follows will be something completely different in tone and aesthetic. As shown at Comic-Con, Secret Invasion is taking a dark turn as an eerie psychological thriller. Nick Fury is surrounded by mystery and deception, as nobody knows who might end up being a Skrull in disguise.
Samuel L. Jackson is once again teaming up with Ben Mendelsohn, Cobie Smulders and Don Cheadle. However, other familiar faces can certainly make an appearance as well, whether in significant roles or simply as cameos. Given their prominence and relationship to established MCU canon and source material, these characters have the best chance of returning in Secret Invasion🇧🇷
While it hasn’t been confirmed yet, it’s a safe bet that Talos’ wife Soren, played by Sharon Blynn, will be back in Secret Invasion🇧🇷 Given the Skrull’s nature to mimic others, this could mean that someone actually plays her like Cobie Smulders technically did in Spider-Man: Far From Home🇧🇷
Really the only thing that could restrict Soren from returning in Secret Invasion is if she died over the year or so since the events of Spider-Man: Far From Home🇧🇷 Killing a character off-screen isn’t really something the MCU is known for, so hopefully that’s not the case here and Soren can feature predominantly.
9 Talos and Soren’s Daughter
Like Soren, the return of her and the daughter of Talos seems final. However, in this case, since it has been canonically three decades since captain marvel, they would need to get someone new to play the role. Interestingly, this could fall to Emilia Clarke, whose role is still being kept under wraps – though other fans believe she could be playing any other type of character, including Jessica Drew aka Spider-Woman, or Abigail Brand.
Alternatively, it could perhaps turn out that the Skrull who visited Monica Rambeau at the end of WandaVisionprovoking their involvement in The wonders, is actually the daughter of Talos. Regardless of how it is done, with Talos must therefore come her daughter, now all grown up.
8 Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers)
Unless it is revealed that Secret Invasion occurs before Mistress Marvelit also seems like a guaranteed situation Captain Marvel would present in some form. Mistress MarvelThe final twist of Kamala and Carol literally switching places across the cosmos shocked audiences – just look at their reactions on Twitter. In that situation, Carol would logically look to her staunch ally Nick Fury.
While it would be cool to see her in a prominent role, it would steal too much attention from the real story and the exciting intrigue at play. So a cameo seems like the likely course of action in this case.
7 Monica Rambeau
It is still unknown which nickname Monica Rambeau will use between Spectrum, Pulsar, Photon or Captain Marvel. the title of The wonders leads to the idea that she will also be called Captain Marvel, and perhaps she could operate primarily on Earth as Carol traverses the cosmos helping others. Anyway, it wouldn’t be so surprising to see Monica again in Secret Invasion🇧🇷
She is a lead SWORD agent as shown in WandaVisionand that organization could be involved in whatever Nick Fury is doing, so that would be a way to bring it in. The wonders🇧🇷
6 Marie Rambeau
Because Skrulls are capable of physically mimicking almost anyone or anything that can essentially allow someone to appear. However, Kevin Feige and other producers have already expressed that Secret Invasion It won’t be the big crossover event like it is in the comics, nor will it be a cameo, but fans should still expect some surprise appearances. One such appearance could be Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau.
She passed away during the Blip – one of the new off-screen deaths of a prominent character – but Lynch returned in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness to play Captain Marvel of Earth-838. If a Skrull removes its face, a variant from another universe appears, or likely in a flashback showing SWORD Lynch’s creation seems a likely candidate for reprise.
5 Quake (Daisy Johnson)
Prior to the rise of Disney+ as Marvel’s entertainment hub, Marvel Television had spread to other streaming services and television networks. for a while shows how Reckless or Agents of SHIELD were abandoned and ignored by the main continuity of the MCU, but in Spider-Man: No Way Home, Charlie Cox reprized his role as Daredevil. There are many other Marvel Television characters who deserve to return and many fans are waiting. Secret Invasion is how Chloe Bennet is brought back as Daisy Johnson aka Quake.
Seeing that Ms. Marvel were changed – making her the MCU’s first mutant instead of an Inhuman – so could Quake. That wouldn’t erase the fun narrative that happened in Agents of SHIELDinstead, it would allow Bennett and the audience to experience Quake from a new perspective.
4 Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine
While this is part of the Multiverse Saga, which will culminate in Avengers: Secret Wars in 2025, Secret Invasion may not contribute immensely to this. As a dark thriller, the show will focus more on the intrigue and mystery rooted in this invasion. Someone fans think could be behind this is Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
Many think she is actually a Skrull, paving the way for the army to take over. Alternatively, others suggest that she is just who she says she is, someone making her own team. Most likely this would lead to Rays and the titular team of anti-heroes and villains. Maybe she’ll show up in Secret Invasion to recruit a new member like she did with Yelena Belova and US Agent.
3 Sharon Carter
Another character that fans believe is a secret Skrull is Sharon Carter. Inside The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, she is shown to have grown cold and vindictive over the Blip, turning to a life of crime as the Power Broker. Some viewers were not particularly interested in this storyline and thought her behavior was out of character compared to previous appearances.
Secret Invasion could answer if she is really a Skrull using her power and money to help destabilize governments from within, or just Sharon Carter using her power and money to help destabilize governments from within. If it’s the latter, then that’s the storyline they’ll need to resolve in Captain America: New World Order🇧🇷
2 Agent Cleary
When SuccessionArian Moayed from Arian Moayed first appeared in Spider-Man: No Way Home he appeared to be nothing more than an interrogating government agent, so he inexplicably blurted out his knowledge of Nick Fury’s status. It seems out of character for Fury to let others know of his whereabouts, unless they are his trusted allies – or impersonating them. This instantly led fans to think he is a secret Skrull.
This can be corroborated by his recent appearance in Mistress Marvel🇧🇷 Though he objected to his fellow Agent Deever’s tactics, he still sought to bring in Kamala. Alternatively, he could just be a conniving agent working for Damage Control, which is apparently being established as the agency that deals specifically with superpowered individuals. If that’s the case, turning people like the Skrulls would likely attract some damage control attention, then again, Cleary could make a surprise appearance in Secret Invasion🇧🇷
1 Captain America (Sam Wilson)
At this point, the next time audiences will see their new Captain America will be in Captain America: New World Order🇧🇷 However, he could certainly appear in a cameo in Secret Invasionespecially since presumably much of the action is taking place on Earth rather than in space.
Again, he could also be mimicked by a Skrull for a moment. If not, perhaps over the year or so that has passed canonically since The Falcon and the Winter Soldier he got back in touch with Nick Fury. As such, it could appear as part of a hologram message like the one from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings🇧🇷
