FINALLY!!! Samuel L. Jackson is set to reprise his role as Nick Fury in the MCU, with his own series on Disney+, and this is the best news since The Mandalorian!
Nick Fury is, without a doubt, the tie that held all of the MCU movies together, until Marvel’s The Avengers made its appearance in theaters.
Nick Fury is in a lot of the MCU movies for brief amounts of time. He is the adhesive that binds all the MCU movies together, giving them a singularly cohesive quality.
Samuel L. Jackson, as Nick Fury, was first in the original Iron Man — if you didn’t watch until the end, you missed it. He was in the teaser AFTER the credits.
Nick came on the scene as the director of S.H.I.E.L.D., who showed up to tell Tony Stark about a new initiative, which we later learn is the Avengers’ Initiative.
The Avengers’ Initiative was a plan to bring certain superheroes together, to fight the bad guys — like the REALLY bad guys.
He has a larger role in The Avengers, leading the mission against Loki (my second favorite character in the MCU, BTW).
Samuel L. Jackson has previously shown interest in a Nick Fury movie or TV series, but he always said it was up to Marvel as to what happened to the character.
The exact plot details of the show are being kept under wraps, but multiple sources say Jackson is attached to star with Kyle Bradstreet attached to write and executive produce. Like all the other Marvel shows at Disney Plus, Marvel Studios will produce.Variety
I am so excited to find out in which direction they take this show! I mean, it could happen in literally any decade, and they could have Nick fighting bad guys, looking for mysterious artifacts, or they could even show how he went about searching out and getting the superheroes.
SPOILER ALERT: The last time fans saw Fury was in the post-credits scene of “Far From Home,” where he was onboard a Skrull ship somewhere in deep space.Variety
So, is this series going to be related in some way to these events?? We just don’t know, and now I’m dying just a little. I can’t WAIT for the series to get here!
