Marvel Studios has announced three new Disney+ series in Secret Invasion, Ironheart, and Armor Wars. Additionally, James Gunn will direct a Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, to release in Holiday 2022 on Disney+. And we will also get I Am Groot, a series of shorts featuring Baby Groot. We also have trailers for WandaVision (January 15, 2021), The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (premiering March 19, 2021), Loki (releasing in May 2021), Marvel's What If...? (Summer 2021), and Ms. Marvel (late 2021). Lastly, Marvel has revealed new cast members for Ms. Marvel, Hawkeye, and She-Hulk. All of these will also stream on Disney+ Hotstar.
Secret Invasion will star Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, who first met in Captain Marvel. The Disney+ Marvel series will be a crossover event, and will showcase a faction of shape-shifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years. Talos is a Skrull, and disguised himself as Nick Fury in Spider-Man: Far From Home, while the real Nick Fury was on a Skrull spaceship, as revealed in a post-credits scene which seemingly sets up Secret Invasion.
