Large-scale crossover events are nothing new for Marvel Studios. Ensembles have been crucial to the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s success in bringing beloved characters together ever since 2012’s The Avengers.
With cameos from War Machine in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Kingpin in Hawkeye, Disney+ has continued the MCU’s crossovers on a lesser scale. She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, which features the Hulk, Wong, and Daredevil across its nine episodes, will soon take character pairings to new heights of excitement and humour.
However, as it turns out, these MCU crossover events may only be the tip of the iceberg, as the franchise’s first programme of Phase 5 is primed to offer the greatest MCU streaming event ever.
Marvel Studios’ Secret Invasion has been formally categorised as a “crossover event series,” as stated on the official Marvel website. As this is the first MCU Disney+ series to be formally referred to as a “crossover event,” fans are wondering how many MCU characters or storylines may appear in Secret Invasion when it debuts in the spring of 2023.
The website also included statements from Cobie Smulders from the introduction of the show at San Diego Comic-Con, pointing out how she called it “a darker programme” that delves deeply into each character. Fans can expect a lot of mystery throughout the entire series, which is “a bit of a guessing game” from beginning to end.
There’s no knowing how massive Secret Invasion may be now that the MCU has officially jumped into the Skrulls’ world, especially with this new “crossover” moniker.
Daisy Johnson from Agents of SHIELD, played by Chloe Bennet, has been rumoured to make a comeback in this plot, but all parties concerned have refuted such rumours for a while now. With Fury participating, other former SHIELD members may also be considered for roles, but it will be difficult to determine who of them has the highest prospects of returning.
This new Disney+ entry is being positioned as a huge event, regardless of who is participating or what narrative is presented.
