It’s friends again! The embargo on social media feedback has been lifted and those who viewed Secret Invasion are positive about the series, with one even calling it ‘Marvel’s Andor‘. There are of course also negative reactions, although I had to dig a bit to find them. That being said, remember one very clear point. In the past, positive reactions on social media have not always turned into positive reviews. Several times before, I posted positive reactions on social media only to post negative reviews a week later.
That being said, I have hope rather than hype for Secret Invasion. The comments in the job below particularly caught my attention.
Why did I say “#SecretInvasion like the one from Marvel #Andor“It’s because it feels like more thought and time has gone into this show than others. There are very few weaknesses, and the filmmaking is first class, and most importantly, it seems more human than anything MCU lately https://t.co/Ie8QsrXuVJ

‘Marvel’s Andor‘ is a hellish statement, especially if you’re, well, me. Andor was for me one of the best television series of the last 12 months. I would also say it’s overall my favorite piece of star warsanything, since 1983 Return of the Jedi. I mean, I liked a lot of other bits of star warsbut i loved it Andor.
I sincerely hope it does, and so far it looks exactly like the series I was hoping for.
Of course, that’s not the only catch on Secret Invasion.
SECRET INVASION: Ooof, two episodes and this is probably the worst Marvel series to date, all the more a lawsuit as it forces artists far beyond this material (Mendelsohn, Colman, Ben-Adir) to squirm as they struggle with excruciating dialogue. Jackson looks particularly poopy.

“Looks like poop” is a very strange criticism to give an actor probably trying to look stressed and tired. However, just because I don’t want this take to be good doesn’t mean I won’t end up agreeing by the time I watch. Secret Invasion myself.

Here are some more positive reviews. As said, there are negative to medium grips, but they are very much in the minority so far. As also, this could change once the embargo on reviews is lifted, probably on the day of publication or the day before.
At the tip of #SecretInvasion, the partnership of Talos and Nick Fury is perfect, both are incredible characters. Another shoutout goes to Olivia Colman, who absolutely kills it as her character Sonya.
Love the overall vibe so far – can’t wait to see the whole story unfold! pic.twitter.com/OM7csojOTu

A common eulogy I’ve seen is for Olivia Coleman. Honestly, as someone who has followed Coleman’s career from a young British television actor, I’m not surprised. Coleman is damn brilliant in everything.
After watching the first two episodes of #SecretInvasion I really like the murky little direction it goes. The spy vibes are top-notch (although the meandering plot gets its own way at times). The standout for me is Olivia Colman’s cheeky spy. pic.twitter.com/cBvge4snqG

#SecretInvasion is… something, to say the least. It pushes into dark territory early on, with new additions holding on and the characters we know and love more emotionally stunted than ever. If such character-driven narratives continue, it could be aces. pic.twitter.com/CMvw8eN6fZ

I like black, I like mature and complex characters. This sounds it’s okay with me. Although I’m not sure She-Hulk fans will love this one?
There are a lot more people if you want to brave the wild nature of social media. While not everyone calls it ‘Marvel’s Andor‘ you will find generally positive reactions to what has been shown so far. It also seems like some have only seen the first two episodes and some seem to suggest they’ve seen the whole series. Maybe I’m misunderstanding, but definitely come at review time, surely you must have seen the full series?
What do you think of these Secret Invasion social media reactions? Are you excited or just hopeful like me? As always, leave your thoughts below.
