The 10th anniversary of Marvel Studios has been quite a generous event. The studio has been pushing out many exclusive looks into the MCU, such as a character encyclopedia, visual dictionary, tie-in games and much more. Luckily, this also means we get a closer look at the various characters for films that have not been released yet. Captain Marvel is only a few months away and we still know very little about the Skrulls that will finally make their appearance in the upcoming film. Luckily, the upcoming Marvel Studios Character Encyclopedia by DK Publishers will offer a look into the main Skrull baddie, Talos, who is played by Ben Mendelsohn. He is described as a spy with an interesting bit of information added in his profile.
“The Skrulls are a strategic, military-minded species. Before a full-on invasion, they send a team of spies to explore the territory and report back on its inhabitants.”
This may be hinting at the Skrulls having a larger role moving forward in the MCU. Many avid comic readers will remember the Secret Invasion storyline, where they pretty much took over the world and no one could trust each other. There is a good chance that later down the line we will get to witness a full-on invasion of the Skrulls. There have been some theories that Avengers: Endgame may feature some scenes involving Skrulls but we haven’t gotten any hints at their involvement so far. Still, we may have to second guess the Avengers as we move forward and see if the Skrulls have infiltrated earth ever since the 90s.
What do you think? Do you want to see a Secret Invasion storyline in the MCU?
