Disney+ 2023 Preview Offers A First Glimpse Of Loki Season 2, Secret Invasion

In the Season 1 finale of "Loki," entitled "For All Time. Always," fans were surprised to see a stamp on Loki's (Tom Hiddleston) file in the end credits saying "Loki will return in Season 2," making the series one of the few of the Marvel Cinematic Universe shows on Disney+ to get a second season. Many of the shows served as narrative bridges between movies, with no reason to continue onto a second season. For example, "WandaVision" seemed to exist to explain what happened to Wanda Maximoff between "Avengers: Endgame" and "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness." Similarly, "Falcon and the Winter Soldier" seems to bridge the gap between "Avengers: Endgame" and the upcoming "Captain America: New World Order," thus leaving no reason for there to be a second season. For his part, Tom Hiddleston told Deadline that he's not surprised to find his character resurrected once again. "I have learned, at this point, having said goodbye to the character more than twice, two and a half times maybe, to make no assumptions," he said.

Another new series coming to Disney+ that fans are very excited for is "Secret Invasion." Based on the 2007-2008 comics event of the same name that kicked off with "Avengers: The Initiative Annual" #1, the series is expected to be about the shape-shifting aliens the Skrulls — first introduced in the MCU in "Captain Marvel" — trying to take over Earth.

Disney+ just released a new promo for its programming for 2023, and it contains a few clips from some highly anticipated shows, including "Loki" Season 2 and "Secret Invasion."

Skrulls to invade Disney+

In the new preview for the upcoming slate of programming coming to Disney+ in 2023, there were some choice clips from a number new shows, including the "Star Wars” shows that will be releasing in 2023, as well as "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" which will land on Disney+ in the new year. Amongst the many previews are clips from the upcoming Season 2 of Loki and the upcoming season of "Secret Invasion." The clips from "Secret Invasion" show Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) as he faces down the Skrull invasion of Earth, with clips of some of the actual Skrulls from the upcoming series. The promo also promised "Some familiar faces, too, such as this handsome fellow," referring to Loki. The video has one clip where three identical Lokis stand with Mobius (Owen Wilson) in tuxedos in what looks to be an abandoned alleyway.

Many fans on Twitter were excited about the Marvel shows and the other new ones advertised in the promo, such as "Peter Pan & Wendy" and "Ahsoka." "So excited for Secret Invasion, Ahsoka, Loki Season 2, Peter Pan & Wendy, American Born Chinese, Win or Lose & #BlackPanther Wakanda Forever to dominate Disney+ in 2023," wrote @supermangeek101. A few Twitter users, including @sayruel, @JTsLeague, and @jenlindleys complained about the lack of clips from "High School Musical: The Musical: The Series" in the preview, but as far as Marvel fans, most seem pretty happy about what's to come.
