Are we on the verge of Nick Fury’s final appearance in the MCU?
The trailer for Secret Invasion definitely hints in that direction. At the end of the new teaser, Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury gravely announces that he’s involved in “one last fight,” while a series of title cards declares “The end is closer … than we think.” Later, Don Cheadle’s James Rhodes calls Fury “the most wanted man on the planet.” But why?
Surely it has something to do with an invasion of the alien shapeshifting race known as the Skrulls. They were introduced to the MCU in Captain Marvel, where they were definitely a bit more benevolent than their usual appearances in Marvel Comics. In Secret Invasion, they seem much more in line with their print appearances, when they traditionally want to take over the Earth by infiltrating various groups and governments — and even sometimes masquerading as very famous superheroes.
