As of now the exact episode titles or characters and events which will be focused on in these episodes have not been revealed. Here’s the potential list of characters that could be the main subject of the episodes: Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) has been the backbone of the MCU since Iron Man. Fury has appeared in 10 Marvel projects in addition to the animated series What If…? and Marvel Television series Agents of SHIELD. His journey continues in Secret Invasion. Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) is a relatively new Skrull character who first appeared in Captain Marvel and later in Spider-Man: Far From Home impersonating Nick Fury while Fury was taking a vacation on the S.A.B.E.R. Space Station. Also returning in Secret Invasion is Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) as former S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent and right hand to Nick Fury. Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) will also continue his journey in Secret Invasion after Okoye freed him at the end of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Don Cheadle), Tony Stark’s closest friend and an Avenger, will also be returning after a brief appearance in The falcon and the winter soldier‘s first episode. Don Cheadle described his character as “a political animal” who is the president’s right-hand man in an interview with Vanity Fair. All of these characters will most likely be getting their own episodes. The rest of the cast for the series includes Emilia Clarke, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Olivia Colman, Charlayne Woodard, Killian Scott Samuel Adewunmi, Dermot Mulroney Christopher McDonald and Katie Finnerant. The Lengends format is reserved for returning character so the MCU debutants will not be featured in these upcoming episodes.
The next 5 episodes of Marvel Studios LEGENDS premiere June 14 on Disney+, with Secret Invasion premiering a week later on June 21!
