Secret Invasion has finally arrived on Disney+, ending our dry spell of Marvel Studios content on the streaming service. This six-episode series sees the return of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) as you’ve never seen him before. The world has changed so much after the Snap, so much so that Fury doesn’t know what to expect anymore. Secret Invasion has only dropped one episode, but already the excitement for this series has been building, so of course we have to get together and talk about it in our Secret Invasion premiere discussion!
Join host Brian Kitson, along with fellow writers Alex Perez, Anthony Flagg, and Uday Kataria as they discuss every exciting detail and disappointment from the first episode of Secret Invasion. These four discuss which new character is their favorite, the impact that a certain death has on the series and MCU, and where they think the show will end up.
