Do the Skrulls Appear in Other Marvel Movies?

If you’re a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you’re probably familiar with the Skrulls. These shape-shifting aliens made their big screen debut in the 2019 film “Captain Marvel”.

But did you know that they have appeared in other Marvel movies as well? Let’s take a closer look.

The Skrulls in “Captain Marvel”

In “Captain Marvel”, the Skrulls are portrayed as refugees seeking a new home after being hunted down by the Kree. The film introduces us to several Skrull characters, including Talos (played by Ben Mendelsohn), who becomes an unlikely ally to Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) in her fight against the Kree.

One of the most memorable scenes involving the Skrulls in “Captain Marvel” is when Carol infiltrates a Skrull ship to rescue Talos’ family. The scene showcases the aliens’ shape-shifting abilities and hints at their potential for mischief and deception.

The Skrulls in Other Marvel Movies

While “Captain Marvel” is the only film so far that features the Skrulls prominently, there have been other instances where they make brief appearances.

In “Spider-Man: Far From Home”, there’s a scene where Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) are shown to be Skrull imposters posing as S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. This revelation sets up a major plot point for future MCU installments and suggests that we may see more of these shape-shifters in action.

Additionally, there have been rumors that some of the characters introduced in previous MCU films could secretly be Skrulls in disguise. For example, some fans theorize that Hawkeye’s wife Laura (Linda Cardellini) from “Avengers: Age of Ultron” could be a Skrull, which would explain her seemingly superhuman archery skills.

The Future of the Skrulls in the MCU

Given their importance in “Captain Marvel” and their potential to shake up the status quo of the MCU, it’s likely that we’ll see more of the Skrulls in future films. The upcoming Disney+ series “Secret Invasion” is rumored to center around a storyline from the comics where the Skrulls infiltrate Earth and impersonate key figures in society.

It’s also worth noting that the Skrulls are closely associated with several iconic Marvel characters, including the Fantastic Four and the X-Men. With both of these franchises now under Marvel’s control following Disney’s acquisition of Fox, it’s possible that we’ll see even more Skrull-related storylines in the years to come.


In conclusion, while “Captain Marvel” may be the only film so far to feature the Skrulls prominently, there are plenty of hints and rumors suggesting that we’ll be seeing more of these shape-shifting aliens in future MCU installments. Whether they’re allies or enemies remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure: with their ability to deceive and manipulate, you can never be quite sure who is really a Skrull in disguise.
