Secret Invasion boss no longer operates MCU cameo potential

Spread MCU News

Secret Invasion’s director has put a stop to speculation of any more cameos, so anyone looking for information about potential crossover appearances from famous figures in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will probably be disappointed.

Ali Selim, the director of the action-adventure miniseries Secret Invasion, responded to the persistent fan curiosity in an interview. Fans shouldn’t hold out hope for more cameo appearances on the show throughout its six-episode run, according to Selim. He stated, “I believe like [this series] is more about the reality of this narrative and less about MCU characters. “In some ways, it’s a part of the MCU, and in some ways, it stands alone.”

Some well-known characters from the MCU have appeared in the Nick Fury biography Secret Invasion, including Don Cheadle’s James “Rhodey” Rhodes and Martin Freeman, who appeared as a Skrull impersonating Everett K. Ross. From firing Fury in Episode 2, “Promises,” through Episode 3, “Betrayed,” which strongly suggests the Air Force commander is a Skrull in disguise, Rhodes has grown in prominence throughout the series. Selim’s remarks follow his denial of a certain prospective cameo in Secret Invasion. He recently played down rumours that Contessa Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine, a.k.a. “Val,” played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, would make an appearance in the show, saying he wasn’t sure where the rumours originated and stressing to SFX Magazine that “the heart of the story” mattered more than any cameos.

The Skrulls invade Earth in the main plot of Secret Invasion, taking on the personas of politicians and other high-ranking officials. Gravik (Kingsley Ben-Adir), a renegade Skrull, is in charge of a group of the alien race after believing Fury broke his promise to find them a new home. Age and the deaths of several Avengers throughout the years during Secret Invasion present problems for Fury. A Skrull impersonating Fury shoots and kills Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) after a bombing in a Moscow plaza in Episode 1, “Resurrection,” forcing Fury to deal with yet another tragedy. Midway through its run, Secret Invasion has received positive reviews. The series has, however, established an unfavourable record with a 74% audience score and an MCU-low 62% average critical rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Given that it is based on the same-named comic book crossover narrative, Jackson acts as an executive producer for the series, which has been labelled the first “event” in the history of the MCU.
