Secret Invasion was one of the many surprise Disney+ series that Marvel Studios announced back in 2020. Since its announcement, however, there hasn't been much word about the show. Fans know that Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury will be back, alongside Cobie Smulders' Maria Hill and Ben Mendelsohn's Talos. But what exactly will they be facing?
While there hasn't been much plot information, there's been plenty of new casting. For one, Emilia Clarke joined the series as an unknown character. Other names include Christopher McDonald and Irina Kara—both actors' roles aren't known at this time.
The series started production late last year and has been filming in the United Kingdom for a majority of its shooting schedule. Well, now, thanks to a new set video, it seems the series is getting closer to being done; on top of that, the show is going to have quite a lot of costumes.
New MCU Secret Invasion Set Video
A costume designer for Secret Invasion posted a video that displays the behind the scenes of the upcoming Disney+ series, before it was taken down by Marvel Studios security.
While Marvel may have gotten them to take the footage down, Twitter user @sinvasionnews grabbed it and put it online for fans to see. The full video can be seen below:

A quote was included alongside the original video, stating how it "takes a lot of hard working, dedicated and talented costume professionals" to bring a project like Secret Invasion to life:

A Secret Invasion is Imminent
Without a doubt, there are plenty of costumes seen in the video. However, it's important to remember that the sheer scale of a warehouse like that, containing as many outfits as seen here, isn't irregular. Most productions, especially big blockbusters or television shows, have facilities just as large for the same purpose.
Remember, not only does the costuming department have to dress the main cast members, but also every single person seen walking across the screen.
But does this video indicate that production is wrapped? It seems like it. At the very least, cast and crew are probably ramping up for the end, though rumors indicate they may still have something left to film in Canada.
When can fans expect to see the final product? That remains a mystery. There's a chance it could squeeze in at the very end of the year in a similar way to The Book of Boba Fett did for 2021—but more than likely, the series will be one of, if not the, first to join the streaming service in 2023.
