Marvel's primary overseer on Secret Invasion is Jonathan Schwartz, who just produced Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
"Like all of [Marvel's] adaptations, it's definitely not a 1:1 adaptation of the comic books, although it takes a lot of that kind of paranoid spirit, and runs with it," Schwartz recently explained. "I think that's literally everything I can say about it. We're going to leave the secret in Secret Invasion for now."
In addition to Secret Invasion, Jackson will also be seen in The Marvels, the upcoming sequel to Captain Marvel. The movie will see Brie Larson's Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers teaming up with WandaVision's grown-up Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) and Ms. Marvel's Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) as well as Jackson's Fury.
