When Captain Marvel introduced the Skrulls into the Marvel Cinematic Universe this past March, it may have been a bigger milestone for the overall franchise than the casual moviegoer would think. For those familiar with comic books, these extraterrestrial shapeshifters have served as antagonists in some of the biggest crossover stories of all time. Granted, the concept was watered down for the big screen, but there’s much potential there.
That said, those who stuck around after the credits for Spider-Man: Far From Home learned that the Nick Fury we saw in that particular movie was, in fact, a Skrull named Talos allowing for the real super spy to take a vacation of sorts. It was cool, sure, but we’ll have to wait and see if the switcheroo had any real ramifications.
According to screenwriters Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, it’s entirely possible that other MCU characters are also Skrulls, as they told the following to The Hollywood Reporter:
“It’s certainly possible. We didn’t write anything in specifically and we have not personally planned anything out, but I think it certainly opens up a world of possibilities that is very exciting.”
If you were to ask me, Kevin Feige probably knows more on that front, but he’s not going to tell us anything for certain until the possible big twist arrives. It’s just hard to imagine which character that may be because True Believers would probably sh!t a brick if they found out a major Avenger wasn’t who they’d thought they were this entire time.
Personally, I was hoping for Secret Invasion to factor into Marvel Studios’ plans following Avengers: Endgame, something that may very well happen soon enough. After all, it was just this week that our source told us Captain Marvel 2 will lay the groundwork for the adaptation, only the Kree will be portrayed as the villainous party. I guess we’ll have to see the end result before judging, though.
