Is She-Hulk: Attorney At Law setting the stage for Marvel’s upcoming Secret Invasion series?

The third installment of the Disney Plus series She-Hulk has left us with questions, and anticipations – but above all else, we may finally be able to see Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe starting to slowly piece together.

Those pieces could very well involve the upcoming Disney Plus series Secret Invasion.

So, where do we go from here for the rest She-Hulk: Attorney At Law and how could it set up what’s next?

She-Hulk sets the stage for Marvel Studios’ Secret Invasion

The premise of Secret Invasion is simple: Skrulls begin to infiltrate Earth to impersonate heroes and citizens of the MCU.  In short: who do you really trust?

In the third episode of She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, “The People vs. Emil Blonsky,” one of the lawyers at Jennifer Walters’ (Tatiana Maslany) law firm, was assigned to a case to defend former colleague Dennis Bukowsi (Drew Matthews) after he was essentially catfished by a shape-shifter named Runa who made him truly believe he was dating Megan Thee Stallion.

But here is where it gets interesting—this all really happened and Runa was actually shapeshifting to look like the iconic rap superstar and it didn’t stop there. After the hearing for Runa’s request to motion to dismiss the case, Runa shape-shifted to be the courtroom Judge in front of the entire courthouse. She also imitated one of the lawyers at the law firm as well.

Granted, Runa is a shape-shifting Light Elf that lived in New Asgard, but seeing how easy it was for her to shape-shift, it could make the audience wonder if anybody is who they say they are. In the comics for Secret Wars the invasion is not just Skrulls, but Super-Skrulls. This leads fans to speculate that Nick Fury and his team in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be going face-to-face with the Super-Skrulls in a post SHIELD world to stop the invasion in the upcoming Disney Plus series.

She-Hulk and its history with Skrulls

Despite the Secret Invasion show being slated for a Spring 2023 release, there is still plenty of time for speculation. Skrulls have been canon in the MCU since Captain Marvel‘s release back in 2018. Fast forward to 2023 and Skrulls begin to mimic Earth’s most trusted heroes‚—creating chaos and havoc. So where does She-Hulk fit in?

Could the character of Jazinda be the link? Once rumored to appear in the She-Hulk series, she is associated with the Jade Giantess in the comics. Her estranged father is the infamous (and original) Super-Skrull, KI’rt. KI’rt could very well have a prominent role in the Secret Wars alongside powers that not only allows him to imitate heroes, but adapt their powers as well. If that is the case, that would could bridge She-Hulk and Secret Wars characters together, as well as setting the stage for Secret Invasion.
