In Secret Invasion, Jackson and Mendelsohn reprise their MCU characters Nick Fury and the Skrull Talos, respectively, who first met in Captain Marvel. The crossover comic event series showcases a faction of shape-shifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years.
Details about the role are being kept under wraps, but I hear it is a newly created character that could cross over to the larger MCU, including appearing in movies and other Disney+ limited series. A rep for Marvel declined comment.
The cast of Secret Invasion is expected to also include Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, Kingsley Ben-Adir and Killian Scott.
McDonald is recurring on well received new HBO Max comedy series Hacks and co-stars in indie feature Walking With Herb. He was recently seen in the hit Netflix movie We Can Be Heroes. He is repped by Gersh and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
