Samuel L. Jackson Will Play Nick Fury Again In New Marvel Disney+ Show - Report
The new series is in development.
There is another Disney+ Marvel series coming to the streaming service. Samuel L. Jackson will don the iconic Nick Fury eyepatch again for a new Disney+ show according to a report from Variety.
As to what this series is about, that is unknown at this time, as Variety states details are being "kept under wraps." While Jackson will star on the new show, Kyle Bradstreet will write and executive produce the show. Previously, Bradstreet was a writer and executive producer on USA Network's Mr. Robot.
Jackson made his MCU debut in 2008's Iron Man in a post-credit sequence where he talks to Tony Stark about The Avengers Initiative. He's also appeared in Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, and a few other Marvel movies.
The last time we saw Nick Fury was in 2019's Spider-Man: Far From Home, which heavily featured Fury trying to help out Peter Parker. However, (spoilers for Far From Home) it was revealed in the post-credit sequence that he was actually Talos, the leader of the Skrulls, during the film. So who knows how long Talos has been posing as Fury, since the former leader of SHIELD is seen hanging out on a fake beach in the giant hanger.
The rest of the MCU is on hold because of the COVID pandemic, with only WandaVision coming to Disney+ this year--The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has been pushed back to 2021 now. Black Widow has now been pushed back to 2021 as well, and that means 2020 will mark the first year in over a decade where there won't be a Marvel movie in theaters.
