Disney had a bit of a snafu during San Diego Comic-Con 2022. Marvel announced a slew of release dates and titles during its Hall H panel on Saturday, July 23, and in an email sent to press summing up the information, Regé-Jean Page‘s name was at the end of the Secret Invasion cast list, which includes Cobie Smulders, Samuel L. Jackson, Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, and more. But Page is not in Secret Invasion, Disney later clarified. His name was included in error.
A spokesperson for Disney told TVLine Page’s inclusion in the cast list was an accident. As the press release read, “Next up, the thrilling new series Secret Invasion launches on Disney+ in Spring 2023. Cobie Smulders, who reprises her role of Maria Hill — a decorated spy and Nick Fury’s loyal #2 — was on hand to talk about the new show. To the audience’s delight, a clip was shown to give a glimpse of what’s in store.
“Marvel Studios’ Secret Invasion stars Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn as the Skrull Talos — characters who first met in Captain Marvel. They are joined by Kingsley Ben-Adir, Emilia Clarke, Olivia Colman, and Regé-Jean Page.”
Secret Invasion is connected to the plot of Captain Marvel. It focuses on a faction of shape-shifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years. This series and the others announced at Marvel’s SDCC panel are all part of MCU Phase 5, dubbed “The Multiverse Saga.”
