S.H.I.E.L.D spy Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) has his eye on the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the first look at Marvel Studios original series Secret Invasion. A Phase Four sizzle reel aired during Marvel Studios' 2021 Disney+ Day Special shows Fury without his signature eyepatch and reveals a new title treatment coded to the green and purple color scheme of the Skrulls, the shape-shifting aliens at the center of Secret Invasion. The Disney+ series reunites Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn as the Skrull Talos after 2019's Captain Marvel and Spider-Man: Far From Home.

"F*** that snap," Jackson wrote on Instagram as filming got underway on Secret Invasion, referring to Thanos (Josh Brolin) snapping away half of all life in existence in 2018's Avengers: Infinity War. Jackson added the S.H.I.E.L.D. super-spy, introduced in 2008's Iron Man before assembling Earth's mightiest heroes in 2012's The Avengers, is "back with a fury" in the post-Blip Secret Invasion

"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," Secret Invasion producer Jonathan Schwartz (Captain Marvel, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings) said previously of the series inspired by Brian Michael Bendis and Leinil Francis Yu's crossover comic event series. "I think that's literally everything I can say about it. We're going to leave the secret in Secret Invasion for now."
