We’re about to learn a whole bunch more about one of the most mysterious men in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Variety reports that Samuel L. Jackson will return to play Nick Fury in an upcoming Disney+ series produced by Marvel Studios. Kyle Bradstreet (Mr. Robot) will write and produce.
Fury’s presence in the MCU has been crucial but sporadic. He’ll pop up in one movie, play a big role in another, and then not show up for a few. Recently, we saw some of his origins in Captain Marvel and, when we last saw him, he was flying into space on a Skrull ship at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home. So while there’s no news what or when the show will be about, it could almost be anything. A space show, a flashback show, who knows.
Another mystery is when this show could happen along with all of the other Disney+ shows Marvel has in development. Obviously, WandaVision is coming up first, The Falcon and Winter Solider after that. Loki is reportedly filming at the moment. She-Hulk and Ms. Marvel have begun staffing up, plus there’s Hawkeye and Moon Night. That’s a lot of things happening all at once. But, if we know anything about the former leader of SHIELD Nick Fury, he sure can bring a group of heroes together.
