Nick Fury is an important part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and plays an essential role in numerous films and series, but the character played by Samuel L. Jackson has not yet been the focus of a production. The SHIELD boss will have his series on Disney +, according to a report by the Hollywood industry magazine Variety.
In the lead role, of course, Samuel L. Jackson himself will be seen, what else would be difficult to imagine. Kyle Bradstreet was hired as a writer and executive producer, previously involved in Mr. Robot. Details of the planned series are not yet known.
With the MCU from the start
Samuel L. Jackson aka Nick Fury made his Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) debut in 2008, in the first Iron Man movie. Mind you, Fury made his appearance in the after-credits scene: in this, Tony Stark he discovers that he is not the only superhero in the world, but that he is part of an entire universe. Fury also wants to talk to him about the “Avengers Initiative” – both allusions to the then still young MCU.
The then newly founded Marvel Studios were obviously hoping to create a hit series, but even the biggest optimists couldn’t have imagined which movie giants would create the MCU franchise.
Fury later appeared in Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Avengers: Infinity War, Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man : Far From Home – a total of eleven films in the series.
