Fans of Marvel are waiting for a certain crossover to happen after a recent video from the upcoming Secret Invasion series. Despite being a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we have yet to see the events from Agents of S.H.E.L.D. enter into the mainstream franchise, but after these four words were uttered by Nick Fury in the clip, we may witness the much-awaited crossover.
After the events of Avengers and Iron Man 3, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was technically the first MCU television show, which lasted seven seasons from 2013, until 2020. The show introduced us to some of the members that make up S.H.I.E.L.D., with a revived Agent Coulson serving as an elite task force.
Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), a S.H.I.E.L.D. soldier and skilled martial artist, was so well-known for her combat and field expertise that she was dubbed the Cavalry in the Secret Invasion teaser. It is this nickname that makes everyone so ecstatic when Fury declares "Cavalry."
Now, this is a term that is used more broadly than just the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it means that you are anticipating backup, and a strong backup at that. Fury might be referring to the fact he is anticipating backup in general, but this particular use has led many to believe that "The Cavalry" Melinda May herself will make an entrance in Secret Invasion.
Fans of Twitter are becoming intrigued by the video that was posted on Instagram.
Many are hoping that having it enough will make it happen.
For some, the news is just a nice way to brighten their day.
Fans can hold onto their dreams, despite the fact that this may just be a coincidence. (Marvel wouldn't mess with us like that... would they?)
Several people walk the fine line between reality and dreaming.
This user doesn't care about the series at all; they only want more Wen!
Although it is a baiting tactic, some people consider it a minor one.
Marvel has said nothing, and, as we previously mentioned, this is a common expression used to indicate that you have some backup on the way, but we really, really want this to be true. It might open the way for more Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. actors to enter the mainstream Marvel franchise.
