Nick Fury is coming to the small screen as Marvel Studios is preparing a series revolving around Samuel L. Jackson’s iconic character.
Marvel Studios has spent more than a decade planning and executing one of the most expansive and successful movie and film universes in history, with no indications of slowing down anytime soon. Even with the next slate of films in Phase 4 delayed until May 2021, there is a brand new venture into Disney+ to look forward to as well coming by the end of 2020.
The first trailer for WandaVision already has fans craving the all-new series, set to premiere on Disney+ as early as Thanksgiving. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has also gotten back to its final days of filming, Loki has resumed production, and shows like Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk are also filling in their acting and directing ranks. Even more news has just broken today on a new series in the works, which will feature the man who already has the record for most MCU appearances to date.
According to a new exclusive from Variety, Samuel L. Jackson is set to reprise the role of Nick Fury in a new, undisclosed series in development from Marvel, produced by Kyle Bradstreet. The series is set to premiere on Disney+, and it will mark Jackson’s 13th appearance as the former director of SHIELD.
What Could The Nick Fury Show Be About?
While he hasn’t had the amount of screen time as some of the franchise’s bigger stars, nobody has appeared in more MCU projects than Samuel L. Jackson. With at least a cameo in twelve movies and two appearances in season 1 of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD under his belt, the time has finally come for a project centered around the longtime MCU veteran.
There is no word as to what the Nick Fury series will focus on, although there are a number of possibilities. The last time we saw Nick Fury was at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home, he was lounging around in the middle of space working on an unknown project as Talos posed for him on Earth.
With the inclusion of the Skrulls in his last couple MCU movies, there is a distinct chance it could revolve around a Secret Invasion storyline, should Marvel try to adapt that route from the comics. It could also be Fury starting the MCU’s SWORD, which was also teased on the back of the pager he received from Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel.
No matter what the project is, there is always room in the MCU for Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury, and all that’s left to do now is wait for more exciting details.
