If you saw Captain Marvel over the weekend, you saw how they handled the Skrulls now that they’re finally in the MCU. But with the Skrulls in the movie not being portrayed as evil, some people became worried that the concept of Secret Invasion couldn’t happen in the MCU.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Kevin Feige addressed the concern that Secret Invasion could be off the table in the MCU:

“I think like the Kree and like humanity, there are good Skrulls and there are bad Skrulls. But one of the things we wanted to do in this movie is, you know, don’t judge a book by its cover and tap into people’s preconceived notions of the pointy-eared green aliens being evil and subverting that. But I do think to continue fleshing them out and making them these three dimensional actual beings, the Skrulls, you would encounter good ones and bad ones.”

As for where the Captain Marvel sequel could go in terms of time frame and how it applies to her ending the Kree-Skrull war, he said:

“Well, we don’t know what she did, right? She said she was going to and she went flying off at the end, and then we jump many years into the future. What happened in that intervening time, I think, is something that would be a lot of fun to explore at some point.”

Captain Marvel did leave lots of threads open for the sequel to be set prior to the first Iron Man in the MCU. Yon-Rogg is still alive, and we didn’t see Carol go back to Hala to deal with that giant green head in a jar. There’s plenty to explore before the present-day MCU in terms of that.

Finally, they asked him about Stan Lee having a cameo in Spider-Man: Far From Home, and he said:

“We’ll see. We’re heading– We shot a couple of others, so we’re coming up on the last of them, yes.”

Last week he hinted that there was one more cameo remaining, but this makes it sound like Far From Home is still a possibility…
