Marvel Cinematic Universe counts a handful of veteran actors who are sticking around with the franchise for a long-time period, and one of them is certainly Samuel L. Jackson, who’s been a part of the MCU as Nick Fury since the very beginning.
Samuel L. Jackson debuted as Nick Fury in the post-credits scene of the first Iron Man movie back in 2008. He played the role in multiple MCU movies and his character is the most deserving person for assembling the team of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Currently, the last time we watched Nick Fury was in 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home, and the last year’s animated series What If…?.
Of course, Jackson is far from done with the MCU. It’s already confirmed we’ll watch him in next year’s The Marvels, as well as the upcoming Disney+ series Secret Invasion. Recently, Jackson talked about his MCU future, and you can check his statement down below.
“There are things that even I really didn’t know about Nick Fury that I just found out. The minds behind what happened during the Blip are fantastic. That’s part of what we’re uncovering when we do this series now. Giving me an opportunity to explore something other than the badassery of who Nick Fury is. I’ve had a good time doing that, and I’m looking forward to people sharing that aspect of who he is when this series does happen.” — Samuel L. Jackson for Entertainment Weekly
Sam L. Jackson will reprise the role of Nick Fury in the upcoming Secret Invasion series, which also stars Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Emilia Clarke, Don Cheadle as James Rhodes, and also Kingsley Ben-Adir, Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, Killian Scott, Christopher McDonald, and Carmen Ejogo in undisclosed roles.
“This series stars Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn as the Skrull Talos – characters who first met in Captain Marvel. The crossover comic event series showcases a faction of shape-shifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years.” — Marvel’s Secret Invasion, official synopsis
