secret invasion movie

The Skrulls are some of the most famous villains in Marvel Comics, and it all lead to an epic comic book crossover storyline called “Secret Invasion” that ran through a self-titled eight issue limited series and several tie-in books from April through December 2008. With the introduction of the Skrulls in 2019’s Captain Marvel, it was no surprise that fans expected the film to plant the seeds for an eventual Secret Invasion movie. But while evidence points to the contrary, Marvel studios chief Kevin Feige won’t rule it out.

Spoilers for Captain Marvel follow.

Ben Mendelsohn as a skrull in captain marvel

Marvel is notoriously secretive about their projects and the cast and crew are very tight-lipped about a film in production. Before visiting a Marvel set, the SHIELD-style Marvel security make you sign an NDA and take a photo on an iPad. Despite NDAs and embargoes, no one can be trusted and the stars of these films are often unsure of what they can and not say in on set interviews. Sometimes this can be frustrating, but other times it can be hilarious.

While visiting the set of Captain Marvel, we had an opportunity to talk with Ben Mendelsohn, who was in full Skrull make-up and wardrobe. Mendelsohn plays the Skrull battle commander Talos in the film, but aside from our knowledge of the Skrulls from the comics, we really don’t know the villainous motivations a the center of this film or why Earth finds itself in the middle of the Skrull/Kree war. And Mendelsohn is a pro at weaving and dodging this potential minefield and while there isn’t a lot of hard information to come out of this discussion, it’s worth reading because of Ben’s hilarious answers.

(If you want to actually hear him say “we be Skrulling,” listen to the interview on this afternoon’s edition of /Film Daily.)
