Netflix Easter Egg Teased Skrulls Long Before Secret Invasion Threw Them Out the Window
Have you spotted this Easter egg in Jessica Jones?
After watching Secret Invasion, you might not want to hear anything about Skrulls. But if you are a Marvel fan, you might be interested in this detail found by a Redditor in Netflix ’s Jessica Jones.
For those who need a reminder, Skrulls are shape-shifting aliens known for causing chaos by impersonating key figures, especially in the government.
They debuted in Captain Marvel, and have had their chance to shine in this year’s Secret Invasion. If you are following the MCU, you know that the series failed to give us the Secret Invasion we’ve all been waiting for, completely ruining Skrulls as a threat.
Did Jessica Jones Hint at Skrulls Way Before We Knew?
In the premiere episode of Jessica Jones season 2, there's this moment where a woman says, "There are lizards wearing human skins and taking over the government."
Now, for the uninitiated, this might sound like just another line in a show filled with strange and supernatural stuff. But could this actually be a sneaky reference to the Skrulls from the Marvel Comics? Well, given that Skrulls kind of look like lizards, it is a possibility.
However, this line could be just a fun nod to the real-life conspiracy theories about lizard people ruling the world. On one hand, Marvel loves to drop hints and Easter eggs about future plots. But on the other hand, the line could just be a playful poke at those wild conspiracy theories we've all heard about.
Is Jessica Jones Still Part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
As of now, the series Jessica Jones, along with other Marvel shows originally aired on Netflix, are not formally considered canon in the MCU.
