Two More Marvel TV Shows Rumored To Be In The Works For Disney+ Including SECRET INVASION

Another exciting Marvel rumour is now doing the rounds as two more TV shows are reportedly heading to Disney+ from Marvel TV Studios, and one of them could adapt the Secret Invasion comic book storyline...

Bleeding Cool has shared a jaw-dropping rumour today with some pretty bold claims about Marvel TV Studios' future Disney+ plans. The site has a solid track record, and previously dropped the news about the Inhumans movie being cancelled, the budgets of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, and the death of Quicksilver way back in 2015. 

It's said that a Secret Invasion TV show is coming to Disney+ which will be based on the comic book event penned by Brian Michael Bendis and illustrated by Leinil Francis Yu.

This will reportedly tie into the Captain Marvel movies, and Spider-Man: Far From Home may have dropped a hint about the storyline playing out down the line when Talos and his wife - two heroic Skrulls - were shown to be masquerading as Nick Fury and Maria Hill. If you've never read the comic, it featured a Skrull invasion of Earth and a number of characters being outed as Skrulls in disguise. 

The second series has already been given the green light, and will reportedly revolve around an A-List character from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Alas, there's no word on who that is right now!

This is definitely one of the more interesting rumours we've come across in recent months, and the stage being set for Secret Invasion on Disney+ could be a game-changer for the MCU and a hint at what's to come over the next few years as Marvel Studios begins its search for a big bad to replace Thanos.

What do you guys think?

Avengers we would like to see in Marvel's Phase 5!

The Ultimates


Marvel Studios appears to be setting the stage for The Ultimates to assemble on the big screen, as most of the team has been cast and the rest (aside from Blue Marvel) are either on the way or rumoured to have a role in a future MCU project. 

This group didn't last for long, but their mission was to tackle cosmic foes who posed a threat to the Earth. With Thanos gone and Earth's Mightiest Heroes "disassembled," it would definitely be fitting for this powerful team to come together to try to protect the planet from alien threats.

Captain Marvel is way too overpowered to be part of a regular team of Avengers, so this might be the best possible place for her, especially if it ends up involving the Kree/Skrull War! 

Young Avengers


The stage is clearly being set for the Young Avengers, and you have to believe we'll see them on screen at some point in the near future. Avengers: Endgame aged up Cassie Lang and laid the groundwork for her to become Stature, while Hawkeye is coming to Disney+ in the next few years.

Speed and Wiccan, meanwhile, are expected to factor into WandaVision, and while we've heard nothing about Patriot or Hulkling, there are a number of places they could show up (if Captain Marvel 2 deals with the continuing Kree/Skrull War, that's definitely a place we could meet the latter).

The question is, will we see this team on the big screen or the small one? 

New Avengers


There have been a few different iterations of the New Avengers and it would be no bad thing for Marvel Studios to take inspiration from pretty much all of them. Made up of characters you wouldn't necessarily associate with Earth's Mightiest Heroes, seeing the likes of Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Doctor Strange assemble would be great fun, and a potential box office smash.

If the Dark Avengers are coming to the MCU (we'll get to them a little later), then the team of New Avengers who were fugitives on the run have the potential to be a unique new story for Marvel.

Either way, it's clear that something "new" has to be done with this team, so heading down this route and potentially giving some of those Netflix heroes another chance could be a really smart move. 

Secret Avengers


The Secret Avengers were essentially a different version of X-Force but with members of The Avengers rather than the X-Men. Some fans loved the concept while others hated it. but it was definitely interesting seeing these characters tackle black-ops style missions rather than world-ending threats.

The issue with a group like this is that it somewhat robs the team of what makes them special, but a Disney+ series or movie featuring heroes like Blade, Moon Knight, and even the likes of War Machine and Shang-Chi would be a novel concept as they assemble to take on an enemy every bit as dangerous as Thanos, albeit in a different way (Dracula, for example). 

This probably wouldn't be a priority, but it's something Marvel could consider exploring one day. 

Dark Avengers


Now that Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures are playing nice again, you have to believe that there's a chance Norman Osborn could be introduced and that he'll end up leading the Dark Avengers.

It's hard to say which characters could fill out that team (the studio does have a habit of killing off its villains), but moving the MCU into a different era of storytelling where an opportunist like Osborn is able to make himself the world's greatest hero is very relevant to today, and something that would present a lot of new challenges to the real heroes.

Rumour has it that Marvel has been sitting on a Dark Avengers script for years, and a villain-led movie would be a refreshing change of pace from what we're used to seeing happen in this shared world.

All-New, All-Different Avengers


Another short-lived iteration of the team, the All-New, All-Different Avengers was made up of new versions of classic heroes like Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor along with younger heroes like the Miles Morales Spider-Man, Ms. Marvel, and Sam Alexander's Nova. 

With Sam Wilson about to suit up as the new Captain America and Jane Foster's transformation into Thor on the horizon (along with those Young Avengers members we mentioned), the former Falcon trying to bring together a brand new team of Avengers would make a lot of sense.

This could lead to a myriad of spinoffs and would kick off a bold new era for Earth's Mightiest Heroes. 



This week alone, Brie Larson, Scarlett Johansson, and Elizabeth Olsen have all talked openly about their desire for a female-led Avengers movie (it's also something they've discussed with Feige).

After that Avengers: Endgame moment, there's a clear desire among fans to see this happen, and with so many great female superheroes already in or coming to the MCU, this has the potential to be amazing. Captain Marvel 2 could be a solid place to introduce them, but a spinoff of their own would surely be a guaranteed box office hit.

There are some "fans" who wouldn't like this, of course, but it would be cool to see it happen.

The Illuminati


Iron Man may be dead and gone but there's no reason the Illuminati can't still come together in the MCU. While it's hard to imagine an entire movie revolving around their exploits, introducing them as a controlling force from the shadows in Phase 5 could be really cool, and might just set the stage for a whole new wave of stories (while providing different perspectives on old ones). 

Honestly, this could be a game-changer for the MCU, and their big screen debut is long overdue.

Professor X, Doctor Strange, Black Bolt, Mister Fantastic, and Namor the Sub-Mariner could all factor into Phase 5 in some way, shape or form, and fans of Jonathan Hickman's Avengers work will know that this lot can be used to great effect. Black Panther could easily replace Iron Man.



When the Thunderbolts were first introduced, they were a group of villain masquerading as heroes who had a change of heart and ultimately decided to do the right thing. Now, it's entirely feasible that they'll basically become the Dark Avengers in the MCU, and we've obviously seeing Suicide Squad-style versions of the team since then. 

Phase 5 would be a great place to introduce them, though, and there's already speculation that "Thunderbolt" Ross will recruit Yelena Belova in the upcoming Black Widow movie. 

Ultimately, it's hard to predict what direction a film like this could head in, but there are a lot of phenomenal ideas on the table from this team's many adventures and they could serve as a new rost of Avengers in many ways, even if they are ultimately outed as being the bad guys. 

West Coast Avengers


This feels like the most logical next step for Earth's Mightiest Heroes. While it's unlikely that the roster will be exactly like the comics, seeing the likes of Wonder Man and Tigra on the big screen is a must, while a West Coast setting for the team would definitely help hit the refresh button on the franchise.

Black Panther set up a base in California, and that's also where Ant-Man and The Wasp are based.

Avengers Tower is no more and we've never been introduced to Avengers Mansion, so moving the team outside of New York City is a logical move. Whether the movie would actually be called "West Coast Avengers" is another matter, as that title is a little cheesy. Still, there's an awful lot of great adventures this team had which could end up inspiring a fantastic big screen outing.

I'd much prefer to save Secret Invasion for the big screen. Can be set up through Captain Marvel 2 and others.
Spidey91 - 1/23/2020, 2:55 PM
@clornelas - honestly, I think the TV format may suit it better since you can develop it over the course of several episodes with hints and twists at a better pace than in a movie.
clornelas - 1/23/2020, 3:00 PM
@Spidey91 - maybe, but then again isn't episodic storytelling what the whole infinity saga was, through movies?
Spidey91 - 1/23/2020, 3:05 PM
@clornelas - yeah, but it took them 10 years to resolve it, they probably don't wanna do that again. Between the TV show and the movies building fron it you can do Secret Invasion in maybe 3 or 4 years instead.
clornelas - 1/23/2020, 3:13 PM
@Spidey91 - but it worked didn't it! It'll take less time now that they have fewer characters to do origin movies for. It's too big of a story to count on streaming subscribers to watch in preparation for what will presumably be at least one billion dollar movie as the payoff.
Spidey91 - 1/23/2020, 4:01 PM
@clornelas - true, it did work, big time, no doubt about that. But I think this can be the testing ground make-or-break point for the MCU going forward, because if it pays off then it's fair game for basically every single character and storyline in the Marvel pantheon.
I don't think any Marvel story is "too big for streaming", not when is Mouse money we're talking about. See The Mandalorian, pulls off te SW visuals just as good as the movies but keep the story compelling through the episodic format and gradual character development. A mistery/thriller Marvel series based on Secret Invasion seems like the easy choice, specially when the players are already established through the movies.
Spidey91 - 1/23/2020, 4:02 PM
Also, lets be honest, streaming TV is at a point where you know what happens in a series before even watching it because other people talk about it around you.
clornelas - 1/23/2020, 4:06 PM
@Spidey91 - but the lack of power players in THIS story? Cuz you know Hemsworth and Cumberbatch aren't dropping in for more than a cameo...
noahthegrand - 1/23/2020, 4:22 PM
@clornelas - I have this idea bouncing around my head where Captain Marvel 2 has Rogue and Mystique as villains and sets up Talos’s daughter being the Skrull Queen Veranke and the third movie going into the Secret Invasion.
SonOfAGif - 1/23/2020, 5:39 PM
@clornelas - Secret Invasion needs to span a saga of films starting with Captain Marvel 2 and continuing with other films like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3, Thor Love & Thunder, and so on.

Then settle it in an Avengers movie.
clornelas - 1/23/2020, 7:35 PM
@SonOfAGif - basically my point
Chewtoy - 1/23/2020, 1:36 PM
I've always thought that fans were too obsessed with the idea of them doing something with "Secret Invasion"... but I guess we'll see.
Chewtoy - 1/23/2020, 1:37 PM
As for the other show, what Marvel A-lister is there waiting for a project? Is War Machine A-list?
WakandanQueen - 1/23/2020, 1:37 PM
Vigor - 1/23/2020, 4:44 PM
@WakandanQueen - seemingly, literally everything
LongMayHeReign - 1/23/2020, 1:40 PM
But I thought it was impossible to do the Secret Invasion story line because having the 20 Skrulls we saw in Captain Marvel not be villainous obviously means that the entire race is also not villainous right?
MrCamw1 - 1/23/2020, 1:42 PM
@LongMayHeReign - I see what you did there lol
WakandanQueen - 1/23/2020, 1:42 PM
@LongMayHeReign - tHEy ruINeD tHE kREe skRUlL wAr
Spidey91 - 1/23/2020, 2:59 PM
@LongMayHeReign - goes to show some people bent over backwards to hate the movie because of Brie that they literally forgot basic logic. It's not like the MCU hasn't shown the duality of a conflict time and time and time and time again.
