Captain Marvel might be the film to plant the seeds for the MCU’s take on the Secret Invasion story.
Those paying attention to Captain Marvel will be well aware from trailers and images that the film will feature the arrival of the Skrulls into the MCU. But does this have any larger ramifications?
There’s a story in the comics called Secret Invasion where the Skrulls infiltrate earth, posing as various Marvel heroes. And when asked on a set visit (via Screen Rant) how Secret Invasion impacts Captain Marvel, executive producer Jonathan Schwartz said:
“Yes, we talked about Secret Invasion. I wouldn’t go into this movie saying, ‘Which one of these superheroes is a Skrull?’ Because Carol is more or less the first superhero to show up on Earth. But are we planting seeds for future movies? Always.”
So it seems possible that this could be the start of something bigger for the Skrulls in the MCU. What do you think, would you like to see the MCU tackle Secret Invasion? Let us know in the comments below…
