Following a series of coded clues, Marvel Studios has officially released the opening scene from Secret Invasion online, and the tense sequence might just reveal that an established MCU character has been replaced by a Skrull sleeper agent.
In the clip, we see Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) pay a visit to a fellow agent named Prescott (Richard Dormer), who tries to convince him that the Skrulls are mounting a massive-scale invasion of Earth. Ross is sceptical, but agree to take the information to Nick Fury.
At this point, it seems like something may have been cut to preserve spoilers, but the scene ends with Prescott tackling Ross to the ground. Did he notice something that led him to suspect Ross of being a Skrull, perhaps?
