We know Secret Invasion will be hitting Disney+ by the end of the next year. We also happen to know the series will feature the return of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Talos (Ben Mendelsohn). Other than that, what happens in the series is as good as anyone's guess, though one can surmise it might have something to do with the plot of Captain Marvel 2 due to the characters involved. If our latest theory proves correct, Marvel Studios may have already started to put forth the groundwork during the events of WandaVision.
WandaVision introduced SWORD to the masses, an organization that traditionally has ties to space throughout its history in the Marvel Comics lore. During the group's introduction in the fourth episode of the Elizabeth Olsen-starring series, we find out it also has roots in space within the MCU, despite dealing with an Earth-bound threat with WandaWorld and the Westview Anamoly.
Now that we've set the stage, here's what we propose. Acting SWORD director Tyler Hayward (Josh Stamberg) isn't who you seem. No, we're not suggesting he's Mephisto or Nightmare — rather, we think he could be Kree.

We've seen the Kree plenty of times before, both in Captain Marvel and Agents of SHIELD. Like their comic book counterparts, the MCU version of the alien race also happens to have two different subsets. There's the blue-skinned "pure blood" Kree, and then there are the Pink Kree. Pink Kree typically take the appearance of everyday humans, like Jude Law's Yon-Rogg and Djimon Hounsou's Korath the Pursuer.
Now that Hayward has managed to weasel his way to the top of SWORD, he has access to Earth's best technology and weaponry. If you watched the latest episode of WandaVision, you'll know he and SWORD managed to get their hands on Vision's corpse sometime after the events of Avengers: Infinity War.
