Samuel L. Jackson Confirms Martin Freeman for Marvel’s ‘Secret Invasion’ Series

Marvel’s upcoming “Secret Invasion” Disney+ series is currently filming.  The show’s cast includes Samuel L. Jackson, Emilia Clarke, Ben Mendelsohn, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Olivia Colman, Christopher McDonald and Killian Scott.  It was also recently reported that Cobie Smulders will return as ex-SHIELD agent Maria Hill in the new series.

Jackson, who portrays Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, recently revealed an additional cast member joining the series.  During an on-stage presentation titled, “Samuel L. Jackson In Conversation With Josh Horowitz” in New York City, Jackson accidentally let slip that Martin Freeman is part of “Secret Invasion’s” cast.

Freeman’s character Everett Ross is a CIA agent in the MCU and made his debut in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.  He later appeared in 2018’s Black Panther and has been confirmed to return in the upcoming sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Marvel’s “Secret Invasion” stars Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn as the Skrull Talos—characters who first met in Captain Marvel. The crossover comic event series showcases a faction of shape-shifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years.

Kyle Bradstreet (Mr. Robot), will act as head writer and executive producer of the show.  Thomas Bezucha and Ali Selim have signed on to direct.

“Secret Invasion” will reportedly be a six-episode event miniseries.  A Disney+ premiere date has not been announced yet.
