What’s on Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime?
Looking for a new Netflix series to binge or the best movies to watch on Amazon Prime? We have you covered…
Secret Invasion is adapted from a popular Marvel Comics storyline where a rogue group of the shape-shifting Skrulls covertly replace many of Earth’s superheroes as part of their global takeover.
The Skrull invasion destabilizes the superhuman community, so unfortunately some of our favourite heroes may be at risk.
Marvel has not yet revealed which superheroes will star in Secret Invasion, but the studio has a load of upcoming Disney+ shows featuring She-Hulk, Hawkeye and Kate Bishop, Loki, Moon Knight, Ms Marvel, Ironheart and War Machine.
Secret Invasion will mark Emilia Clarke’s return to TV two years after she wrapped on Game of Thrones.

She recently gave her blessing to Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin’s plan to launch prequel spin-offs of the successful series on HBO.
“It’s just inevitable. I wish you all the best, it’s gonna be whatever it will be, but of course they’re doing more,” she told Entertainment Weekly.
“You can’t create something that big and not have people go, ‘And? What else? This is really good! Let’s do loads more!'”
There is currently no set release date for Secret Invasion. Marvel spin-off series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, is available to watch now on Disney+.
