Secret Invasion Director Reveals Timeline for Rhodey’s Skrull Kidnapping

Secret Invasion Director Reveals Timeline for Rhodey's Skrull Kidnapping

Marvel Studios’ Secret Invasion threw a major twist in the MCU lore when they revealed that James Rhodes (or Rhodey) has unquestionably been a Skrull for some time. Secret Invasion’s director recently spoke on when he thinks the swap happened.

When did Rhodey get swapped with a Skrull?

Speaking to recently, director Al Selim was asked well-nigh the timeline for when Rhodes (played by Don Cheadle) may have been taken and replaced by the Skrulls. According to Selim, he thinks that things point when to 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, and believes that’s where Rhodes was swapped.

As for the rest of the timeline, Selim thinks it’s increasingly fun for fans to go when and revisit moments with a new lens.

“A lot of people have asked about, ‘Definitively, when did Rhodey…?'” Selim said. “I think his legs not working in the end of episode six and him stuff in the hospital gown points to [Captain America: Civil War]. And, from there, does it have to be definitive, or is it increasingly fun for the regulars to go when and revisit every moment, every Rhodey moment and squint at it with a variegated lens now that they think, ‘Oh, he might’ve been a Skrull there.’ And make the visualization for themselves, or it’ll be answered in Armor Wars.”

Captain America: Civil War saw Rhodey lose the use of his legs without he is unwittingly hit by a whizgigging from Vision, causing him to crash into the ground. Though Tony Stark/Iron Man has motorized leg braces made to indulge Rhodey to protract walking, it seems this was all washed-up for a Skrull with Rhodey’s squatter rather than the real Rhodey.

What is Secret Invasion about?

Secret Invasion hails from throne writer Kyle Bradstreet and director Ali Selim. The series features the return of MCU vets Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Cobie Smulders, Martin Freeman, and Don Cheadle, as they reprise their respective roles as Nick Fury, Talos, Maria Hill, Everett Ross, and Rhodey.

Together they race versus time to thwart an imminent Skrull invasion and save humanity.”
