Marvel’s ‘Secret Invasion’ has concluded its thrilling first season, leaving fans with jaw-dropping revelations and setting the stage for future developments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The season finale, titled “Home,” delivered significant moments, including the defeat of the series’ main antagonist and the introduction of a formidable new hero. With this article, we’ll delve into the finale’s key moments and explore how it sets the groundwork for the upcoming MCU film, ‘The Marvels.’

Warning: Spoilers ahead!

G’iah’s Ultimate Power Display

In the finale, as the Skrull rebels threaten a catastrophic nuclear attack, G’iah, portrayed by Emilia Clarke, confronts Gravik, played by Kingsley Ben-Adir, who has taken on the appearance of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). G’iah presents him with ‘The Harvest,’ a collection of DNA extracted from various Avengers, allies, and adversaries who participated in the Battle of Earth in ‘Avengers: Endgame.’ Their absorption of this powerful DNA leads to an intense battle, ultimately ending with G’iah defeating Gravik in a Captain Marvel-style blast of energy.

The Marvels’ Setup

Beyond the gripping showdown, the Secret Invasion finale provides intriguing links to the upcoming MCU film, ‘The Marvels.’ President Ritson’s outing of the Skrulls and the proposal to classify all non-Earth species as enemy combatants sets the stage for a human-Skrull alliance. G’iah partners with Sonya Falsworth, played by Olivia Colman, but their relationship is not one of camaraderie. Sonya makes her intentions clear, emphasizing a mutually beneficial alliance to ensure the safety of both their people.

Though Fury doesn’t meet his speculated demise in the finale, he, along with his Skrull wife Priscilla (Charlayne Woodard), known as Varra, plans to venture back into space. The Kree are seemingly open to peace talks, but ‘The Marvels’ antagonist, Dar-Benn, as seen in the film’s recent trailer, suggests that not all Kree share the same sentiment for non-violent negotiations.

Looking Forward to ‘The Marvels’

With Fury and his Skrull wife preparing for a cosmic journey and new alliances forming, ‘The Marvels’ promises an enthralling adventure with Carol Danvers, Kamala Khan, and Captain Monica Rambeau. The film’s director, Nia DaCosta, expressed her excitement about the interconnectedness of the comic book universe. Set to bring together events from ‘Avengers: Endgame,’ ‘Captain Marvel,’ ‘WandaVision,’ ‘Secret Invasion,’ and ‘Ms. Marvel,’ ‘The Marvels’ is sure to captivate audiences with its grand crossover.

With ‘The Marvels’ set to hit theaters on November 10, fans can expect an exhilarating continuation of the MCU saga. Meanwhile, ‘Secret Invasion’ is already streaming on Disney+, inviting viewers to delve deeper into the Skrull-centric storyline.
