The upcoming Disney+ miniseries Secret Invasion (Secret Invasion) based on Marvel comics will be remade due to the war in Ukraine.
Citing insider Daniel Richtman, The Direct reported that filming for Secret Invasion will begin in two weeks and last four months.
Also recently, one of the leading actors in the series, Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), shared that he will return to the set in August, and also confirmed that there is still work to be done on Secret Invasion.
“If the rumors are true, the war between Russia and Ukraine, which is still going on, could be the reason. Given that Russia is an important setting for Secret Invasion, it is likely that the main setting of the series will be moved from Russia to another country. As a result, long periods of time will be required to reshoot a large part of the scenes,” the article says.
The Secret Invasion series will be the ninth series of the Marvel Cinematic Universe media franchise. Filming began in September 2021 in London and was completed in late April 2022. The six-episode series will tell the story of how one faction of alien metamorphs, the Skrulls, gains control over all aspects of Earthlings’ lives.
The show stars Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn, as well as Cobie Smulders, Martin Freeman, Don Cheadle, Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, Killian Scott, Christopher McDonald. It is scheduled to premiere on Disney+ in 2023.
